16 January 2024: LEADING: SHEPHERD & SHEEP CASE STUDY (1) – John 10:1-5, Psalm 23

The first relationship between a shepherd and a sheep is leading, not feeding. He wants to lead us first. In the leading, feeding is included.

Don’t first seek God for what you want to get, seek Him for leadership.

Let Him be the One that directs the affairs of your life. When we give our lives to Jesus, He stands as our Saviour; that is, at the point of salvation. However, there must be a transition over time when He now becomes your Lord. This is where leading comes in.

When God puts you in a church, He puts a shepherd in front of you to lead you and He expects the shepherd to lead you supernaturally. Apostle Paul said, “Be ye followers of me, even as I also am of Christ” (1 Cor. 11:1). Therefore, when you’re listening to the voice of your shepherd, you’re listening to the voice of the Chief Shepherd.

However, you don’t have any business following a man that has stopped following Jesus. Once he stops following Jesus, you stop following him and keep following Jesus. It is wrong followership to follow your pastor into error. As a lady, single or married, you cannot be sleeping with your pastor and say it is part of serving God; that is an error and unbiblical. Once a pastor asks you to sleep with him, stop following him. He cannot lead you again, but if you are a son or daughter of Belial, you can keep following him to hell.

PRAYER: I receive divine awareness and sensitivity to always heed the voice of my Shepherd in Jesus’ name. Amen.

Genesis 32:13-34:31, Matthew 11:7-30, Psalm 14:1-7, Proverbs 3:19-20
