I have frequently heard from people in the past that “we are a staff led church” and this idea has always troubled me for the New Testament Tells us that
-“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves.” Philippians 2:3 If we are doing this then we first would seek in humility to others and in reverence to Christ to be a Servant First and then a Leader second for this is what Christ modeled obedience as a cornerstone to his life and His death.
-We are not to think too much of ourselves. “For we dare no; make ourselves of the number, or compare ourselves with some that commend themselves; but they measuring themselves by themselves, and comparing themselves among themselves, are not wise” (2 Cor. 10:12). For when we start to have faith in ourselves and not in Christ alone we will lose our way.
I have learned when I think I think I am O.K. and that decisions I make without obedience first to Christ opens the door for Satan to join in.
For a staff led church might be one seeking the will of man and not of Christ .
Pray today that Christ will reveal to you where you are blind seeking only His will and His way for your faith walk.
