5 ways to maintain a biblical perspective on Christian leaders?

May 27, 2014

1. Realize that no man and no ministry is infallible or beyond accountability.  “Celebrity Christians” are saved sinners like everyone else and are under the same standards of God as everyone else.

2. Learn from three or more sound teachers, not just one.  Avoid being a “fan” of just one man or ministry.

3. Prioritize being a part of your local church.  This is where God has designed us to be taught, have fellowship, take communion, and pray (Acts 2:41-41).

4. Be like the Bereans and search the Scriptures to see whether the things being taught are biblical (Acts 17:10-11).

5. Ask yourself: Would my faith be shaken if my favorite teacher fell?  Would I defend my favorite teacher if he was proved to be unethical or immoral?

How do we find God’s will in decisions when the Bible doesn’t give an explicit answer?

April 5, 2014

David headshot1. Does the Bible say anything explicitly or by implicitly about the decision you’re facing?
For example, the Bible is clear that a Christian should not marry a non-Christian.  (1 Corinthians 7:39 A wife is bound as long as her husband lives; but if her husband is dead, she is free to be married to whom she wishes, only in the Lord.)

2. Abide in Christ.  
John 15:7 “If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, ask whatever you wish, and it will be done for you.”  In other words, the closer you remain to the Lord, the closer your decisions will be to His will.

3. Relish the wrestling.
Finding God’s will implies there’s effort required—you need to look for it and it may be hard and long.  Think about it.  Knock on doors.  Gather information.  God is refining you through the process.

4. Seek counsel from the oldest, wisest people who know and love you.
Read 1 Kings 12 about how King Rehoboam listened to the counsel of his peers rather than the older, wiser, and more experienced men.

5. Pray without ceasing over the decision.  And perhaps fast from food too.
Wait until you have a settled peace.  1 Thes. 5:17 “pray without ceasing.”

6. Look for circumstances, not signs.
Pay more attention to tangible circumstances like open and closed doors and less to “I had a dream last night and feel like I need to quit my job and start working in full-time ministry.”

7. Understand that God is sovereign over our decisions
We can still make a “less than” decision even when our hearts are right and we’ve followed the right steps. The good news is God is in control even in the midst of our “less than” decisions and will work through them for our good and His glory. Psalm 103:19 The Lord has established His throne in the heavens, and His sovereignty rules over all.
