Leaders Must Be Firmly Established In God's Acceptance

This week I'm talking about Last Days Leadership. Leaders in these times must know that God the Father is not mad at them. They must be firmly established in God’s love and acceptance of them if they are to be effective. 1 Thes. 5:9 says that “God did not appoint us to suffer wrath but to receive salvation through our Lord Jesus Christ.” We must understand and believe that God’s wrath is not for us. We are in Christ, protected by Christ, and the Father sees us through the "lens" of Christ.

As we understand and walk in this acceptance we will not be swayed by the temptation to perform in order to prove our leadership. The devil tempted Jesus to perform in the wilderness, but just as Jesus refused because He knew he was fully accepted by the Father, so last days leaders will refuse to perform to prove their leadership anointing.
