And He is before all things, and in Him all things hold together. He is also the head of the body, the church; and He is the beginning, the first born from the dead; so that He Himself might come to have first place in everything……. And we proclaim Him, admonishing every man and teaching every man with all wisdom, that we may present every man complete in Christ. (Col. 1:17-18, 28).
People in the pew need to be aware of “bionic” leaders with an abundance of charisma. We need to watch out for the highly gifted, capable, winsome, and popular superstars who focus attention on themselves or their organizational brand. Rather, the true leader must consciously turn people’s devotion and worship to the Head of the body—–Jesus Christ. The Savior is the Lord. He shares that preeminent place of authority and glory with none other. Not your church brand, not your denomination, and not your Pastor or leader.
