2010 leaders will walk in a maturity of soul that will bring forth splendor and awesome qualities in the church across the world.
Every leader, regardless of position, culture, or level of responsibility will need great maturity in these last days. They will need the power of God’s grace to have changed their perspectives, their beliefs, their very heart and soul. That transformation will bring them into alignment with their perfectly righteous spirit-man where the Father’s image is deeply seated.
This transformation to maturity is not a zip-zap, overnight experience! It is a willful submission to the Lord’s powerful fire of grace over time, irrespective of circumstances, and in the midst of trials and troubles.
A leader who truly desires to become mature in the things of God will not pull back as God’s grace removes the junk from their heart and brings forth the gold and silver of His Spirit. It is submission to the process of transformation that defines, in large measure, the level of maturity and stability a leader will lead.
In Mark 8:35 Jesus said ‘whoever lose his life for me and for the gospel will save it.’ This defines the depth to which the leader is transformed to gain the life of Christ. What is the depth to which you are willing to submit to God’s process of grace? Your answer defines the maturity of your leadership.
