Here is a word that suggests a now seemingly abnormal act, Leadership. We are in a place in time where everybody thinks of themselves as being in the position of some kind of Leadership.
“Leadership” defines Leadership as;  ”the power or ability to lead others”. Now with regards to following after that definition as a workable definition, we must then understand what that implies. According to “Leadership is the art of leading others to deliberately create a result that wouldn’t have happened otherwise.” They must have “, Self-direction, Vision, and Ability to motivate.”
                What is happening in the “Body of Christ” appears to be a serious lack of true Leadership on the part of them which initially assumed the responsibility. As it has been many times over in the past, members elevate to an office that they could easily perform the duties of. Then flesh brings a season at some point of discontentment and with it a move from Godliness. Satan is represented by the moral less society we live in, causing many a good man to turn from the things of God to the ways of the world.
What has occurred is that people, are not discontinuing to be leaders - just not for God. Instead of bringing our gifts to the Lord, we are robbing him to give to the “god of this world”. How can we expect our Creator to ever be pleased with our living if our living is in vain? Sure you might say it is not in vain if I am helping my fellow man, however if in doing this we neglect the things of our God then surely our “good will be evil spoken of” and go for naught in the sight of God.
  In the book of Revelations,  Christ through the Apostle John says that “But I have somewhat against thee, because thou hast left thy first love.”
Time is winding up, get back to Church. Get back to your first love. Remember it is not about the people as much as it is all about Jesus and your relationship with him as you move in your God-given Leadership abilities.
