Kingdom life is different to anything else we have ever experienced. One of the most important things to grasp for South Africans is that the Kingdom of God is NOT a democracy. The majority does ot represent what is right, and the people DO NOT choose their leaders! These are extremely difficult to comprehend.
In churches we choose our leaders, but the truth is that we have no choice. The only one who can choose leaders is God. If we appoint leaders, He did not choose we will end up with a unhealthy church, lead by unqualified people. The only choice we really have is to recognise whom God have already chosen.
Who will God appoint to lead HIS Church. Those who serve HIS PEOPLE.
Mark 9:35 And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.”
If we strive for anything on earth, this should be the qualification! To become great in the kingdom! To be recognised by the God of all the ages. How important is that for you?
