Leaders needed

Re: Verse reading–1 Timothy 3:1-13 (day seven)
“I searched for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand in the gap before Me for the land, so that I would not destroy it; but I found no one.”Ezekiel 22:30.  Sad statement.  God willing to heal, renew a nation.  Looked for someone to obey His call.  Found no one.  Without leadership, nations fail.  (Please remember this on Tuesday when you go to the polls.)  Churches, too.  After 30 years of missionary ministry, Paul is in prison facing the end of his life.  He sees clearly the priority.  Find new leaders!  Men (and women) of New Testament character.  Sincere and strong examples for the churches.  1 Timothy 3 is his instruction to Timothy as he undertakes this assignment.  Us?  Are we convinced that the church needs leaders?  Pastors, Deacons, Sunday School teachers?  Do we feel the urgency that Paul felt?  “It is not too late”, says the Lord, “but, leaders are needed”. Are you ready to lead?
