EXODUS 32:26“Then Moses stood in the gate of the camp, and said, Who is on the LORD's side? let him come unto me. And all the sons of Levi gathered themselves together unto him.”
Who is on the Lord’s side? Spiritual leaders have to declare their stand on issues like this. Many want us to believe that God is on everybody’s side and on the side of everything. No. God has His own side on every issue, your responsibility as a leader is to find out God’s mind and will on an issue and stand with him!
He demands that we take sides. God is not neutral. True spiritual leaders are never neutral. Neutrality is a position of disloyalty on any issue, because a neutral person is unstable and will go with what is attractive or will give him a seemingly better outcome. There are only two sides to every issue on earth: (a) The Lord’s side and (b) The other side. Notice that whenever things go blurred; there will always be a minority that will follow God and these people will be your future leaders after the dust clears.
It is rather sad to see spiritual leaders who evade praying in the name of Jesus so that they can appeal to the audience before them. When you deny Christ politically or emotionally, He will deny you before God and his holy angels (Matthew 10:53). Be bold and open about your stand with God.
PRAYER: Lord, I declare boldly today and forever that I am on your side and will always take sides with you on any issue in Jesus’ name. Amen!
