Follow The Leader

Numbers 12:2, NIV: "Has the LORD spoken only through Moses?"
they asked. "Hasn't he also spoken through us?" And the LORD heard this.
“In the first place,” Paul writes, “I hear that when you come together as a
church, there are divisions among you, and to some extent I believe it.” There
is no question that such divisions still exist in the church today. We say we
seek the leadership of the Holy Spirit, and we say we believe God has brought
our church to a place, or understanding, or to appoint church leadership. But
when things go wrong, and questions arise, where to we turn. Do we turn to God
and ask Him for guidance? Or do we point fingers, and complain? James writes,
“What causes fights and quarrels among you? Don't they come from your desires
that battle within you? You want something but don't get it.” When it comes to
disagreements in the church, we ultimately have one question to ask: “Do I seek
my will, or God’s will to be done?”
