Faith can be like going through a drive-through if you let it. It’s easy to stop by for scripture “sound-bites” or speed through worship service like we’re at a burger joint. But you are called to be spiritual leaders. I’m referring to being a vessel for creating God encounters here!
Henry Blackaby defines a spiritual leader as one who:
- Influences others or moves people to where God wants them to be. When you are “authentically spilling over for God” it invites those around you to be closer to Him.
- Depends on the Holy Spirit. To be God-depending is a critical trait of a spiritual leader!
- Is accountable to God.
- Influences all people, not just God’s people. A spiritual leader is available to those that do not currently know the Lord just as much as those who have experienced salvation.
- Works from God’s agenda. Are your decisions based on reflection of what God wants in your life? When you seek God’s will in your decision-making, His agenda will supersede that of your own.
So how do you avoid drive-through faith? Flex your spiritual leadership muscles now! I’d encourage you read the Word in your daily time with God to stretch your dependence on the Lord.
