There is a price leaders must pay in the Kingdom of God.

  • The spirit of sacrifice must prevail here over any attitude of imperialism or dictatorship. People in the kingdom of this world love high titles and positions. And often they oppress others to access it. But it will never be like that among you, the leaders of the Kingdom. The leader must know how to sacrifice his time, his money, his honor for the Kingdom of God.

                            Here are some leadership principles that will help us serve God better and appreciate more the people God has placed next to us in His field. In the book of Joshua, God gives us some principles relating to this subject:

1. Don’t live in the past “Moses, my servant is dead.” (Joshua 1:12).

  • • A leader does not live in the past but in the present and the future.
  • • A leader always prepares for a better tomorrow.
  • • The Holy Spirit leads him daily into truth and opens his eyes Daily to the mysteries of the Kingdom of God.

2. Walk in the promise of God. We are the children of God’s promise. ‘Every place that the sole of your foot treads on, I give it to you, as I said to Moses.’ (Joshua 1:3) .

  • • Act like children of promise.
  • • Let us conquer the land that God has promised us.

3. Stand firm before the enemy.
• No one will stand before you all the days of your life (Joshua 1:5).
• God is for us: who can be against us?
• The victory is ours in Jesus Christ.
4. The presence of God.
Invoke the presence of God in your life and ministry. Don’t let yourself be overwhelmed by the spirit and thoughts of defeat. God said to Joshua, I will be with you, as I was with Moses.

  • • The presence of God reassures us of our victory.
  • • The presence of God brings us your spiritual security.
  • • The presence of God gives us peace.

5. Always be brave.
Strengthen yourself and be of good courage. (Joshua 1:6,7,9) In your life, you will have valleys to cross and mountains to overcome. Always be courageous, having the assurance in his presence at every stage of your race.

6. Be obedient to the word of the Lord. “This book of the law will not depart from your mouth; you will meditate in it day and night to observe and put into practice all that is written therein, for it is then that you will carry out your undertakings, it is when you will succeed.” (Joshua 1:8) God always blesses us according to our obedience and not according to our sacrifices: Saul & Abraham.

  • • We will obtain God’s favor only through obedience.
  • • Obedience to God and the hierarchy established in the Church is the key to God’s blessing in your life and your ministry. (Joshua 3:15) 7.
  • • Lack of obedience to the established leader results in downfall and disavowal of God.


                                                                                   1Samuel 13:5-14; 15: 1-35

  • VERSE OF MEMORY: “The Lord does he find pleasure in the holocausts and the sacrifice, like in obedience at the voice of the Lord? Here is, obedience worth better than the sacrifice, and watching of her speech worth better than the fat rams” (1 Samuel 15: 22).

                                   A reminder of the Facts leading to the wrath of God and the Rejection of Saul.

        1. The Philistines gathered a great army against Israel for revenge: 1 Samuel 13:3-5Genesis 34: 30; Exodus 5: 21.
        2. Israel had no appropriate weapons for the battle, and was very demoralized, 1 Samuel 13: 6 – 8, 19 – 22; Exodus 14: 10 – 12. 3. 

        3. The Lord had told Saul to destroy everything that breathed life and belonged to the Amalekites, what he did not: 1 Samuel 15: 1 – 9; 

Jeremiah 22: 22; Titus 3: 3

        4. Saul waited for Samuel with anxiety for seven days without making evidence of patience: 1 Samuel 13: 8
             ; Romans 5: 3, 4; James 1: 4.
        5. Saul ordered imprudently to offer a holocaust: 1 Samuel 13 : 9, 10 ; Numbers 16 :1, 3, 40 ; 2 Chronicles 26 : 16 – 20 ; Hebrews 5 : 1.
        6. God revealed to Samuel that Saul had not kept His commandments: 1 Samuel 15:10-13Acts 5: 3;2 Samuel 12: 7 – 9.

        7. Samuel appeared before the end of the appointed time, and questioned Saul about his actions: 1 Samuel 13: 10 – 12; Genesis 3: 13; 4: 10Joshua 7: 19.
        8. Saul recognized before Samuel that he didn’t have to listen to her consciousness: 1 Samuel 13: 12Psalm 50
16 – 21Romans 1: 32.
        9. Asked about the subject of his disobedience, Saul refused to acknowledge his guilt, and remained impenitent: 1 Samuel 15: 14 – 21Genesis 3: 12; 4: 9;   Jeans 8: 44.

        10. Samuel warns Saul that his reign born would last point, and then the kingdom he would take away and give at another: 1 Samuel 13: 13, 14; 2: 30; 15:28 ; Psalm 78: 70Acts 13: 21 – 23.
       11. Samuel told Saul that “Obedience is better than sacrifice” and that he was rejected for having disobeyed the Word of the Lord: 1 Samuel 15:22-29Romans 1:28Jeremiah 6:30Isaiah 1: 22.
          12. Samuel executed Agag, and to separate of Saul that he born relives more: 1 Samuel 15: 10 – 35.


Saul had reigned only two years since his enthronement when Jonathan, his son, attacked a garrison of the Philistines, thus causing a series of precipitous invasions of Israel by the Philistines. even though Israelites had no weapons of war except their axes and pickaxes, Saul sounded the trumpet and called the Israelites to battle. Despite this, Saul found himself faced with thousands of Philistines with only six hundred men.
 Decisive Time
The test has always been the test of size, and this situation tested the character of Saul until showing his character of lack of patience and disobedience. He was a general who did not have a large army under his command, and he had to face several circumstances, which announced an immediate and inevitable disaster. Faced with the possibility of an imminent attack by the Philistines with extreme rapidity, Saul saw that the situation demanded only one kind of action effective was done, otherwise the causes would lose.

No doubt Saul felt his need for God’s help, but Samuel, God’s Prophet, was not. Previously, Samuel had spoken of that daytime at Saul, and he had said to wait seven days. Samuel also promised Saul that he would come and offer sacrifices and burnt offerings as a supplication to the Lord so that God could help them; and only then would Saul learn what to do. Corn Samuel did not come! the seventh day is a silent survey, corn the Prophet was not the.


                   The first instance of Saul’s disobedience. One-Act Imprudent.
Grasped anxious and impatient, by then Samuel did not come more early than possible according to the date promised, Saul took the things in hand to find the means of exit of his problems. He asked him would bring the holocausts, and he offered in supplication to Lord.
Saul knew enough of the power of God, and he feared engaging in a battle without than ugly of God born was of his side. However, the audacity that Saul had to offer the sacrifice without Samuel, the one that God chose for such a work, was a hasty escape and a dangerous thing. Furthermore, it was an affront to the holiness and the majesty of God, that God born could not ignore.
The administration of offerings and sacrifices was restricted to those authorized to do so, and all other persons who dared to do so were immediately punished with certain death, and this punishment should be carried out without delay. (See Numbers 18:7; Leviticus 17:3-9). New Testament declares this: “In effect, all high priests taken from the environment from men East established for men in the service of God, to present offerings and sacrifices for sins” (Hebrews 5: 1).

He there had from people who, previously to time of Saul, had dared usurp the priesthood of a priest, acting so for their destruction. Kore, Dothan, and Abiram were become jealous of Moses and dared to put in causes authority than God had data for administering worship of God. God defended Moses in opening the Earth that engulfs living his accusers. the fire went down too according to God and consumed 250 of the princes of Israel for their sympathy with those who were swallowed up. Such was the severity of the act of Saul (See Numbers 16: 1 – 50)

No sooner had Saul finished offering the burnt offering than Samuel appeared and asked him to provide him with explanations of his acts. The response of Saul was the confession of one consciousness guilty: “I am made violence and I have Free the Holocaust”.
Saul did not repent of this irreverent act which was, without a doubt, the basis of all his future and continuing disobedience to the commandments of God. Because of their unrepentant attitude toward Saul, Samuel told him that he had acted foolishly, that his reign would not last, and that God was going to find another man according to His heart, who would chief of his people (1 Samuel 13: 13, 14).

All the inclinations that Saul had in the past to serve God in spirit and truth, seemed to be away from him at this crucial moment. Guilty feelings arose, and Saul began to be proud, dominator, imprudent and irreverent. He there at a future dark for all man who leaves alone of similar emotions enter in his heart for the guide during his existence, and Saul began at lead a life of sin and extreme disobedience.

                      The second instance of Saul’s disobedience.
The Word from Lord was addressed at Saul, and he said to go destroy all this who had the breath of life, men and animals, who belonged to Amalekites without nothing save. Saul gathered his army, attacked the Amalekites, killed the people and the animals, but spared the king and the best beasts. The Lord revealed Saul’s disobedience to Samuel, and said to him, “I repent that I have set Saul to King, because he to diverts of me and he doesn’t observe point my words” (1 Samuel 15: 11). When Saul met
Samuel said that he had executed the order from Lord.
This second act of Saul’s disobedience was deliberate and presumably accomplished without his caring about the good or the bad it might bring. Saul did not hesitate to blame his people for all transgressions committed and born was doing than to justify giving excuses for her disobedience.

The response of Samuel to the excuses for Saul was the response of God Himself in all the cases alike of premeditated and permanent disobedience: “Disobedience is as sinful as divination, and resistance is no less so than idolatry”. God again said to Saul through the prophet Samuel: “Because you ace rejected the floor of the Lord, He rejects you too like King” (1 Samuel 15: 23).

                        The obligation of obedience.
Saul’s continual refusal to obey God was the revelation of the cancerous nature of the sin that is found in his heart. Those acts can appear insignificant, corn their results were huge. “The one who East faithful in the lesser things ballast too in the large, and the one who East unfair in the lesser things is also in great things” (Luke 16: 10). So it was with Saul; he did not realize that big things are made of countless little things, he couldn’t see the value in obedience to lesser things.
If therefore the great creation of God (sun, moon, and all creation) must obey the desire of Creator, he East inevitable than the man, made in the image of God, respect the will of God if he longed for Her favor.

In the armed forces of any nation, there is a fixed rule to be enforced, which states that we must, first of all, learn to receive from orders before of the to give. this is not only one other way of saying what Samuel had reasonably said to Saul: “Obedience is better than sacrifice and watching of his speech worth better than the fat rams” (1 Samuel 15: 22).

There is no place for rebels in the kingdom of God. Saul was rebellious, and it resulted in Samuel he fit to understand than Phone then the pan of his coat was torn, God was going to tear the royalty from above him. God gave the kingdom to David, a man after His own heart. David respected the laws and commandments of God and put them into practice, although that would cost a big sacrifice staff.

Many leaders (Ministers, Artist musician) do not manage to experience success in this or that field because of continual disobedience to the Word of God in things that they consider not to have important. Others die with their ministry in the belly. What God says is of incalculable value, for the simple reason that He is the Almighty God, and there is no other. Therefore, if people underestimate any part or portion of what God has said or revealed, it means that they dishonor all that god said Where made.

Saul took something out of the Word of the Lord, and God took his name out of the Book of Life and gave the kingdom to another. His lack of repentance hastened the day of his harvest—a harvest of sadness – and, finally, a death by suicide.
                                                                   1. In what way does Saul do he disobey first of all in command of God?
                                                                   2. Who should offer from holocausts to Lord?
                                                                   3. What was the second act of disobedience of Saul?
                                                                   4. How? ‘Or’ What Samuel did he know this act of disobedience?
                                                                   5. What were the pretexts for Saul for her disobedience?
                                                                   6. that said the god of this act?
                                                                   7. what will happen to all those who disobey God?


                                             Here are some leadership princes…(Continued)

7. The step of faith “That day the Lord made Joshua great in the eyes of all Israel. (Joshua 4:14)

  • • The day Joshua decided to set foot in the waters of the Jordan River to cross it.
  • • The day when Joshua acted with courage and exhorted the people to do the same to overcome the obstacle which prevented them from enjoying their promise.
  • • That same day the Lord exalted Joshua before all the people of Israel,
  • So what is your reaction to the “Jordan” that stands before your life and your ministry? I urge you to go forward, to walk, and pass the steps. You will be more than a winner. 

8. Let God act. “Today I have rolled away from the shame of Egypt from you. (Joshua 5:9)

  • • Let’s be sure that the Holy Spirit is there to destroy and burn away anything that keeps us from being effective leaders.
  • God wants us to be effective so that men will see and witness that we are truly followers of Christ, his ambassadors.
  • • Let us be sensitive to the voice of the Holy Spirit. He wants to witness in us that we are children of God.

9. We must consult God before making any important decision in the ministry. “But I am the captain of the host of the Lord, I come now (Joshua 5:14).

  • • Before going to conquer territories for God, we must first consult the leader of the host, Jesus Christ. Joshua said, bowing his face to the ground: What said my Lord to his servant?
  • • God has chosen us to be leaders: Every true leader always seeks the directives of the one who appoints him
  • • We follow in the footsteps of Jesus Christ and we are under His authority. In the name of Jesus, every knee shall bow and every mouth shall confess that Jesus Christ is Lord.
  • • We are ambassadors for Christ. Our leader never leaves us alone. What he wants from us is that we trust in him and act in faith and obedience. Can we try this?
  • • Peter, on seeing Jesus, had the courage – despite the storm and the roar of the rough sea – to leave the boat to go towards Jesus by walking on the water.
  • • Moses only had to hold his hands up to see God grant victory to Joshua and his army fighting in the valley.
  • • Moses only had to put his staff in the Red Sea to see God make a way in the sea, allowing them to cross it on dry feet.
  • • Joshua only had to set foot in the Jordan for the Lord to split the water, allowing his people to cross it on dry feet.
  • • As leaders, let us walk by faith. Let’s put our trust in God. He is all-powerful. He gave us the victory. “His divine power has given us all that contributes to life and godliness, by making known to us the One who called us by his glory and by his virtue.

4. Complete his race (2Tim 4:7)

B. A Leader is a good teacher.Luke 12:48)
D. A leader is someone who seeks responsibility, not authority (1Pie 5:2-3) Authority comes when we fulfill our responsibilities with a servant’s heart and attitude (Matt 20:26- 27)

                                      There are three biblical elements necessary for leadership, all of which were used by the apos in choosing their leaders (Acts 6:1-4)

1. A good reputation.
             (a) We must enjoy a good reputation and a good testimony of our piety with Christians and sinners (2 Cor 1:12) because the Church is exhorted to follow good leaders.
               (b) We need to make sure that we are good examples to follow, good role models for the Body of Christ. (Hebrews 6:12) “. According to the pattern you find in us” (Phil 3:17)
The church is a reflection of its leaders (leaders). The congregation cannot rise higher than the pulpit. We must have a good reputation with those who disbelieved so that they do not fall into reproach and the snares of the devil. (1Tim3:7)
                     (c) A good testimony from those outside means that you are respected by those in the world.
                     (d) To do good works, to have wholesome words. (Titus 2:7-8) II.)
                     (e) Never drink wine, beer, etc.
                     (f) Conduct honest business.
                     (g) Pay bills on time.
                     (h) Be like Christ at all times. “The wrath of man does not accomplish the justice of God.” (James 1:20)
                   (i) Never give access to the devil. Do not become a rebuke to the ministry or a stumbling block to the salvation of others. We are ambassadors of Christ at all times (2 Corinthians 5:20). The person you have wronged may later see you ministering. This could prevent him from receiving the Word of God and putting it into practice in his life. (Ephesians 4:27) 2.

2. Filled with the HOLY SPIRIT
                     a. The Holy Spirit enables leadership. (Acts 1:8) If we live by the Spirit, we also walk by the Spirit. A leader must develop a deep spiritual walk with the Lord, regardless of his level of authority. (Gal 5:24-25)
                       b. We need to train ourselves in spiritual things and develop a strong prayer life in the Spirit. (Ephesians 5:17-18)

                        b. A wise man keeps good advice. 
vs. Wisdom teaches us to speak productively.
                        d. Wisdom is the ability to use the acquired knowledge. (Proverbs 29:11)

4. You can’t just expect people to respect and follow you; you must earn it. (Matt 20:25-28).
5. We must have the right attitude. (1Peter 5:1-3)
