If A Man Wants to be A Spiritual Leader, He Must Walk with God
by Monty Watson on May 21st, 2013

At our recent men’s rally, Kerry Williamson, a Christian counselor and member of our church, talked about the necessity for a man to walk with God in order to be a spiritual leader. Here are some of the wise things Kerry said that stood out for me.
 
1.       A man must read the Bible. That’s not meant to be simplistic. It’s crucial. With all the distracting noise of our culture, a man must constantly renew his mind, as Paul said in Romans 12:2. We must fill our minds with truth, else we will drift from God, our convictions will lose their edge, and we won’t be the spiritual leaders God called us to be.
2.       A man must worship God. Again, it sounds simple, but Kerry was talking about opening up our hearts to God. To listening to God and hearing what He has to say to us. And expressing our love to God. Worship is acknowledging the greatness of God.
3.       A man must pray. If Jesus prayed to His Father, needed to pray to His Father, and craved intimacy with His Father, then how much more true should that be of us?
4.       A man must deal with old hurts. A person’s view of God is often shaped by a person’s relationship with their parents. If you had a distant father, then you might see God as a distant Father. Or, if you experienced some tragic circumstance in your past, you might not trust God today because He did not protect you in the past.
 
The point of Kerry’s talk was that a man must walk with God in order to be a spiritual leader. Thanks Kerry for reminding us of what it takes to do that.
