Acts 1:21-26

“So one of the men who have accompanied us during all the time that the Lord Jesus went in and out among us, beginning from the baptism of John until the day when he was taken up from us—one of these men must become with us a witness to his resurrection.” And they put forward two, Joseph called Barsabbas, who was also called Justus, and Matthias. And they prayed and said, “You, Lord, who know the hearts of all, show which one of these two you have chosen to take the place in this ministry and apostleship from which Judas turned aside to go to his own place.” And they cast lots for them, and the lot fell on Matthias, and he was numbered with the eleven apostles” – Of all of the qualifications that churches should consider when choosing a leader, the most important one, i.e., is this person GOD’s choice? doesn’t seem to matter in the minds of many churches today. Thus, all of the leadership dysfunctions we see in so many churches today should come as no surprise!
