Faithful Leadership

Spiritual leaders must be faithful leaders. Faithful to the calling God gives them, and faithful in our walk with God. This is an important characteristic for Christian leaders!

Major Robert Evans offers some thoughts on Faithful Leadership:


"I will raise up for myself a faithful priest, who will do according to what is in my heart and mind. I will firmly establish his house, and he will minister before my anointed one always." (1 Samuel 2:35)

God is prophesying against the house of Eli because of their unfaithfulness and oppression of the Israelites. Despite their lack of obedience, God's Will will not be frustrated as He will raise up another who will walk in His ways.

I need to remain faithful in every area of my calling, reflecting God's heart and mind, if I am going to be entrusted with the leadership of His people (church). This reiterates what God has previously spoken to me from Zechariah 3:7, "If you walk in my ways and keep my requirements, then you will govern my house..."

Key Principles

  1. Call to faithfulness – every area of life (faithful in the little things)
  2. Reflect God’s heart & mind if we are to be entrusted with leadership of God’s people
  3. God will raise up another if I am unfaithful with my calling

Some questions you might like to consider on faithful leadership:
  • Has God called you to be a leader? If so, are you faithfully serving in that capacity?
  • How would you rate yourself out of ten, when you hear the words, 'faithful leadership'?
  • Are you walking in God's ways?
