Leadership counts and the Lord notices. In both 1 Timothy chapter 3 and here in Titus chapter 1 we find the character and skills the Lord is looking for in those to lead His church. The Lord pays careful attention to the leaders. In my devotional reading this morning it said this in Jeremiah 23:14, “Also among the prophets of Jerusalem I have seen a horrible thing: The committing of adultery and walking in falsehood; And they strengthen the hands of evildoers, so that no one has turned back from his wickedness.” God is horrified when those who are to lead are sexually immoral, dishonest, and support others who violate the word of God.
It is apparent that from small local churches, to large churches, to denominations and associations we have leaders who are horrifying the Lord. May we, who know God’s word, not be silent. May we instead speak up and demand the leaders of the Body of Christ have the character and skills the Lord is looking for. May He not be horrified by our complacency.
