THE BLESSINGS OF OBSERVING A VISIBLE LEADER
Philippians 4:9, 1 John 1:1-4
There are certain things that you are not going to receive unless you observe them in a visible leader. You’ll learn some practical things that you don’t see in books and then you’ll receive a spirit of what you are looking for. The preaching and teaching aspect of my ministry is the easiest to catch. Even if you are an ordinary member of our ministry, you are going to start preaching. You will see that grace resting upon you. You are going to start ministering. Over and above that, there’s a need for you to understand the leadership aspect of my ministry. If God has brought you to me, there is that dimension that you need to imbibe and that isn’t going to come upon you by sitting in church, you need to get close; you will need to look at somebody.
Note the word “both” in Phil. 4:9, it means that you do them concurrently, not one after the other. There are some things that you need to learn and some things you need to receive. There are some things that you need to hear and other things you need to see in your visible leader and then do. Doing is the last part of a 5-step chain. Most people make mistakes today because they jump into the doing part of marriage, business, ministry, leadership and many other things without doing the other four steps. It is like the trinket that is a set having a necklace, earrings, bangles, wrist chain and ankle chains. If you buy the trinket and they don’t give you the earrings, you say it is incomplete. You know what you’re looking for because it’s a set. The same way, life practices come in a set.
PRAYER: Father, show me the visible leader I must observe at every phase of my life in Jesus’ name.
