Once again, it's amazing what songs play through your mind when the radio is off all day. And this one wasn't leaving anytime soon, yesterday. Perhaps is because of the political mess of our Presidential candidates this week, but in light of today's climate and what we are watching unfold in our leadership, whether on the political front or from behind the pulpit, I thought they words were quite appropriate... even if written in 1992.
Indeed, it is true... one can not serve two masters.
Sadly, we live in a time, where it's increasingly popular to serve the wrong one. It's acceptable to try to serve both. Meanwhile, in continues to fail. Miserably.
Church leadership, sadly, isn't immune. If wish made it so, perhaps. But for decades, we've realized and witnessed a moving away from the truth of God's Word, from the leading and prompting of the Holy Spirit and a general compromise in how we approach ministry. There's so much going on... it's hard to know where to begin. Or how to continue, for that matter.
Pray, this #youthPastorWednesday for a fresh move of God in our churches and leadership. Pray a return for the things of God and passion for His Word in churches and congregations that have seen a departure. May there be a move of the Spirit upon leadership that has experienced compromise. Pray a hedge over congregation and youth, who are unaware (or at least not fully), of what is transpiring and unfolding when conversations are held and decisions are made.
Indeed, may we live and lead our lives for one.
