1/24/14 Daily Devotion

1 Timothy 3:6 He must not be a recent convert, or he may become conceited and fall under the same judgment as the devil.

For some, the idea of serving in church leadership is enticing, so enticing that it may cause them to seek a position before they are ready and/or qualified. Church leaders do not have to have walked through numerous years of life, but they must not be recent converts of the faith. They must be seasoned in their understanding of scripture and the belief/practices of the church. They must not be someone who has recently come to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior, nor should they be someone who has spent many years in one denomination and then shifts to another. They should be seasoned in the beliefs of the church, and ready to guide it on the path the church believes to be true.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, I pray for the leaders of my church. I pray that their hearts are centered around You and that they have no personal motives or desires they are trying to push.
