|What should the church look for when picking leaders?|
Look at Acts Acts 6:3: "Therefore, brethren, select from among you seven men of good reputation, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we may put in charge of this task.
The local church is a powerful representative of the entire body of believers around the world. Through the local church, Christians in a certain geographic area join together as one body and build one another up and fulfill the Great Commission.
The local church needs solid leaders to carry out our assignment given by Jesus (Matt. 28:18-20).
The question for you today is, why would someone pick you to serve in a ministry in the local church? What kind of life are you living? Are you willing to serve the Lord by serving other people? Are you even available to serve the Lord?
If you do not have the characteristics listed above from Acts 6, are you willing to get serious about attending bible study and corporate worship? Are you serious about prayer, and fellowship with loyal followers of Christ? Are you willing to grow and get ready for faithful service?
What will the people in local church pick you for? What do people see in you that is of value for growing God's kingdom?
