Wise Up You Leaders! (A Warning Needed to the Body of Christ)
Sometimes leaders go too far and open themselves up for a trap of the devil.
Also it can cause reproach to the Name of Christ!
“Behold, I send you forth as sheep in the midst of wolves: be ye therefore wise as serpents, and harmless as doves.” Matthew 10:16
To what an I referring to?
It is what I call a ‘purity line’ between males and females ministering to one another on sexual matters.
You can call me old fashioned if you want to. It’s ok, 😁
Sometimes we just need to keep some of the old landmarks.
“There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither bond nor free, there is neither male nor female: for ye are all one in Christ Jesus.” Galatians 3:28
Still, you must draw the line when the opposite sex wants to talk personal of their struggles sexually.
That includes emails, phone calls, etc of sexual content!
Leaders should always beware they don’t get in a trap to be lured to that person.
I myself tell anyone approaching me that way, to go to a Godly man for counsel in that kind of area.
Being in prison ministry since 2006, and online a lot, I have had to learn some healthy boundaries.
Things can be misconstrued for one.
Also there can become an unhealthy ‘soul tie’ formed.
We need to be very clear in this area!
I speak in love but firmly, for leaders benefit.
This message is for all. As always it comes to me first, checking my own heart.
I know it is particularly for someone reading today.
“Remove not the old landmark; and enter not into the fields of the fatherless:” Proverbs 23:10
God bless you all.
