When God calls you for a purpose, you are the most eligible person for all kinds’ of attacks around you. Most of the cases believers get stuck in the same places where they are not presupposed to be.
Sometimes your fellow members become very reason that you are not moving farther in your calling and most of the time it’s your leadership and the senior person you are submitting
Dear People of God, Understand, the Bible says you have to be submissive under an elder and if so church authority for a season, so that you can be well prepared for your call.
Now how to identify the right submissive authority Or Church Or Senior Man Or Pastor
CHURCH VISION: The church is a place where God dwells among his people and love to fellowship, and Jesus is coming back for the church.
Go over the vision & purpose of the church and secondly, church plans are always from God, and he uses the head of the church to implement it (1 Chronicles 28:19) and the plan would be to worship the true living God and exalt the Son of God, Jesus.
ELDERS OF THE CHURCH: Leadership/Elders play an important role & responsibility for the church, they direct the lost sheep in the church to the way to cross and Jesus, Meaning they are Good Shepherd.
Review their lifestyle, before submission, what I am writing looks little hard, but it the calling we need to complete which is from God.
Leaders and elders should have holy living, lifestyle according to the word of God, their testimonies should glorify the name of Jesus. Their preaching is all about how to be holy, Cross, Holy Spirit, Fruit &Gifts, Family in the sight of God, few examples (1 Timothy 3)
MEMBER OF THE CHURCH: Members of the church are directly proportioned to leadership /Elders training & teaching, Understand their prayer life, you will find the right answer.
The member of the church will flourish with anointing from God, (Acts 1:8) and Gifts of the Holy Spirit among them, also the fruits coming out of the, which is the righteous peace and joy,
One of the Gifts we need to reexamine
Gift of faith
Gift of Prophesy
Gift of Word
This has to align to the word of God,
WORSHIP OF THE CHURCH,
We are created to worship God and created in his own image
if church know
1. Praise, for he is worthy to be praise and no other name (Psalms 145:3)
2. Worship, for who God is & master creator (Psalms 99)
3. Spirit and Truth
Worship should align to the word of God,
This is few identities that we necessitate to check if we are stuck same place, unable to move further in your calling. It’s time you examine yourself where is your standing and what are the things surrounded by you which are blocking your call and purpose. Continue praying and seek God for help, he will show you a way to come out and at the same time be care full of your next step
Will come back with more later,
