Spiritual Maturity in Leadership is Essential!

The relationship of Law and Gospel, not understanding this will cause false teaching and or a weak church. If you do not get this, you do not belong in leadership. If you are not maturing in the faith, then do not be a leader.

 “In your relationships with one another, have the same mindset as Christ Jesus:…”

Philippians 2:5-11

Nothing is more distressing than a church filled with people who do not have respect for those who are in spiritual authority over them. Conversely, nothing is more discouraging to a congregation than immature and irresponsible spiritual leadership. Many churches move away from Christ and their call and thus go under every year mainly because of pride, arrogance, bitterness, envy, and strife, the opposites of what God calls us to–the opposites of maturity (Phil. 2:5-11).

  1. Spiritual maturity truly isn’t measured by how long you have been a Christian, or how often you go to church, how much or long that you pray, how often you read the Bible, or how good you can quote scripture. Spiritual maturity is measured by the relationship that you have with God, and all others. It’s measured by the amount of love inside you, and that flows out of you. This is our “Christian gift”.
