The Bible says we are sheep as Christians, and sheep don’t lead themselves, they follow a leader. Christians should understand that God has placed the voice of His ministry of “Shepherd” in the ministry and calling of the pastors He gives to us. Therefore, when a pastor is functioning in the supernatural office and anointing of a pastor, we hear the voice of our Chief Shepherd through his ministry.
Today, in the body of Christ, people know the voice of many strangers, and this ought not to be.
Who is your real leader in life? The voice you listen to in the time of crisis shows who your real leader is. If it is one woman in your family that you remember when issues come up, that is the leader in your life. You can be a Christian with the Holy Ghost inside of you and choose another leader apart from the Holy Spirit.
Make up your mind as a sheep in the sheepfold to follow the Chief Shepherd (Jesus) through the human shepherd.
Follow your shepherd, not the stranger, a wolf or fellow sheep. Respond to godly leadership. Accept his shepherding ministry to lead you, feed you, care for you, direct you, guide you, correct you, rebuke you and assign you duties.
Christians need to understand that God gives us shepherds as part of His guidance system, His protection programme for the sheep. At all times, every Christian must be able to say, “This is my pastor, this is my shepherd” – someone who has accepted responsibility for your life, not just a nominal title.
PRAYER: I have hearing ears and I hear the right voice in Jesus’ name. Amen.
