I continue from where I left off. You can read the first post in this series here.

2. LEADERSHIP IS A PRIVILEGE. Oh, I wish we never forget this. “No man takes this honor to himself except he that was called as Aaron was.” (Hebrews 5:4) How grateful I’ll forever be that God counted me worthy of this calling (2 Thessalonians 1:11). He didn’t listen to my first message before He called me to preach! So, it was nothing I did that impressed Him into choosing me to lead.

This is what I remember when the burdens and responsibilities of leadership overwhelms me (and boy! would they?) I remember that I don’t just HAVE to bear this (out of a sense of duty or obligation); I actually GET to do this (it’s a privilege). Come on, God had other choices, but He chose to use me. What a privilege! So, I really can’t brag about this, all my boast would be in Him (see 1 Corinthians 1:25-31).

Getting to lead in God’s house is not my right; it’s a privilege – a God-given privilege! If I ever lose sight of this, He CAN replace me. And that, God forbid! (To Be Continued)
