Acceptance of Authority

How do I get people to accept my authority as a ‘leader?”

They have to see that i am a person of God.

They will accept what I say if it is consistent with scripture.

They will accept what I say if it is compatible with the church.

They will accept if there is a visible commitment to follow Christ on my/the leaders part.

One more thing I have to add now.

They will accept if they recognize God called me into the pastorate and only God can call me out of the pastorate even though she divorced me!

Is there a church who will let a man like this exercise his calling?

Romans 11:29, The gifts and calling of God are without repentance. {irrevocable}

Until Next time,

Hoss
