1013- Leadership领导力

Ephesians 4:11-12 And He Himself gave some to be apostles, some prophets, some evangelists, and some pastors and teachers, for the equipping of the saints for the work of ministry, for the edifying of the body of Christ.

Since God is a not a God of confusion and is a God of order, He had appointed the office of the Pastor, to be His under shepherd.

There is a mandate given to the church especially in the ministry and the role of the Senior Pastor is to lead the church towards the mandate that God has given the local church.

Spiritual leadership means taking responsibility and initiative. It means inspiring and organizing others so that together, we can reach a given goal. The vision is the common goal.

Leadership is the ability to lead a group of people from point A to point B. The Senior Pastor needs to know his goal by drawing down the blue print for the church from God. He needs to know the time and season that the church is in so that he can strategize, plan and execute it accordingly. No pastor is able to go at it alone to fulfil the vision therefore he needs the backing of the entire church to work together with the spiritual gifts that God has given them. The ability to motivate others is a major factor in spiritual leadership.

There should be nothing that’s done out of selfish ambition, pride or vain conceit. If it is left to the flesh and our carnal thinking then there will be chaos, division, and strife in the church. The Lord had to inspire Apostle Paul to write 1 Corinthians 13 that talks about love because many of the church members in Corinth were very carnal in their thinking. There were factions and divisions in the church where people were taking sides between Apollo and Paul. It is still happening today except it is about denominations and individualism. It is the work of the devil whenever there is strife, division and conflict regardless whether it is at home, the church or the office.

Everything that we do is done out of the foundation of love for the Lord and for the people.

Therefore one of the greatest encouragements that you can give any Senior Pastor is to give him full support by running with the vision of the church.

Hebrews 13:17 Obey those who rule over you, and be submissive, for they watch out for your souls, as those who must give account. Let them do so with joy and not with grief, for that would be unprofitable for you.

领导力

以弗所书 4:11-12他所赐的,有使徒,有先知,有传福音的,有牧师和教师, 为要成全圣徒,各尽其职,建立基督的身体,

因为神不是混乱的神,而是有秩序的神,祂设立了牧师的职分,成为祂旗下的牧者。

教会被赋予一项任务,尤其是在事工上,主任牧师的职责就是带领当地教会走向神所托付的使命。

属灵的领导意味着承担责任和采取主动。这表示激励和组织他人,这样我们才能一起实现既定的目标。异象就是共同的目标。

领导力是指带领一群人从A点到B点的能力。主任牧师需要通过为教会勾画出从神而来的蓝图,来知晓他的目标。他需要知道教会所处的时间和季节,以便他能制定出相应的策略、计划并且执行。没有一个牧师能够独自完成这个异象,因此他需要整个教会用神所赐予他们的属灵恩赐合作来支持他。激励他人的能力是属灵领导的一个主要因素。

凡所做的都不应该出于私心、骄傲或自负。若是靠肉体和我们属世的思想,那么教会中将会有混乱、分裂和纷争。主不得不感动使徒保罗写下哥林多前书十三章关于爱的讲论,因为哥林多教会有许多成员的思想非常属世。教会里有分门结党,人们分成亚波罗和保罗两派。而这些直到今天还在发生,只不过表现为宗派和个人主义。无论是发生在家中、教会还是办公室,但凡有纷争、分裂和冲突之时,就是魔鬼作恶之时。

我们所做的一切都是出于心底那份对神和对人的爱。

因此,你所能给予任何一位主任牧师最大的鼓励之一,就是向着教会的异象直跑,全力支持他。

希伯来书 13:17 你们要依从那些引导你们的,且要顺服;因他们为你们的灵魂时刻警醒,好像那将来交账的人。你们要使他们交的时候有快乐,不至忧愁;若忧愁就与你们无益了。
