Well if you haven't heard about it already, you must be living out in the sticks. The German soccer squad gave the Brazilian team a thorough hiding with a 7-1 victory. The event broke Facebook and Twitter records on both social media platforms. One post said the Brazilians have Neymar but the German's have a team, this was certainly clear. Never mind that though, Gertrude (you remember our world cup oracle) was pleased that her team were through to the final. Now to see about the Dutch team.
What was abundantly clear to me, however, that it was not the loss of Neymar that cost the Brazilians the match, but rather the loss of their captain. And why was he not playing again????? Ah yes, TWO yellow cards.
Without proper leadership no team can succeed in life no matter what team you are on. That is why God ordained that every possible grouping of people have leadership. The husband to be head of the home, the Pastor to be head of the Church, the Apostle to guide multiple churches and so on.
An issue that goes hand in hand with leadership though is submission. As the body of Christ we must submit to the leadership of Christ and the church (globally) in order for us to fulfill God's desire for us. Leadership is not only there to guide us but to protect us too.
No man is an island and it is important for us to live in submission to Christ and the Church. Do you have a proper spiritual covering? If not, pray about it and ask God to lead you to the right place where you should be submitted and you will soon see God's blessing on your life in that area.
