Important to know for Leadership:

Posted: September 30, 2013 in Leadership

It is important for leaders in the Body of Christ to know: These are what i believe some few important things for leaders in the Body of Christ to know, but not just leaders, but for the whole Body of Christ in the Kingdom of God.

The different kinds of Spiritual gifts, different kinds of Motivational gifts and 5 fold Ministries the Bible talked about. The purpose is not to judge them, but to understand them when you led them, or for understanding others, that will solve many of your problems, unnecessary problems that can happen, and not put them in a box either. On the other hand, one thing we need to know is that, “There are no perfect leaders, you’re not gonna find perfect a leader, and there are no leaders who have never made a mistakes, every good leaders had made mistakes, some people with good leadership abilities too make mistakes, even big mistakes”. Anyway, we all grow and must be willing to grow and learn, let’s see these things, hope it would make some differences at some points as well.

These gifts are not for creating rebellion people, but for understanding others, and creating freedom in people’s gifts, knowing people’s mentalities, visions, knowing their callings, their functions, in relations and more –


1 Corinthians 14:1 – Follow the way of love and EAGERLY DESIRE GIFTS OF THE HOLY SPIRIT, especially prophecy. (Therefore, we can DESIRE the gifts of the Holy Spirit, and we are TO EAGERLY DESIRE the gifts of the Holy Spirit.)

1 Corinthians 12:7-11 – Now to EACH ONE the manifestation of the Spirit is given for the common good.

– To some people the Spirit gives the MESSAGE OF WISDOM. (words of wisdom)
– To others the same Spirit gives the MESSAGE OF KNOWLEDGE. (words of knowledge)
– To others the same Spirit gives FAITH.
– To others that one Spirit gives GIFTS OF HEALING.
– To others he gives the power to do MIRACLES.
– To others he gives the ability to PROPHECY.
– To others he gives the ability to DISTINGUISH BETWEEN SPIRITS. (Discernment of spirits).
– To others he gives the ability to speak in different kinds of tongues
– And to still others the interpretation of tongues.

All these are the work of one AND THE SAME SPIRIT, and he distributes them to each one, just as he determines.


Romans 12 – We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us.

Prophecy: If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your faith.
Serving: If it is serving, then serve;
Teaching: If it is teaching, then teach
Encouraging: If it is to encourage, then give encouragement
Giving: If it is giving, then give generously
Leading: If it is to lead, do it diligently (other translations – with zeal, taking responsibility seriously, enthusiastic, energetic and alert)

Dictionary Examples of “Diligent”: Steady, earnest, constant in effort to accomplish something; attentive and persistent in doing anything. Done or pursued with persevering attention; painstaking, (energetic, alert, taking responsibility seriously, enthusiastic, zeal).

Proverbs 21:5 – The plans of the diligent lead to profit (other translations: prosperity, plenteousness, advantage, abundance, productivity..).
Proverbs 12:24 – Diligent hands will rule

Showing Mercy: If it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.


Besides the 5 fold callings of Apostle, Prophet, Evangelists, Pastors and Teachers in the Body of Christ.

Advancing the Kingdom, pioneering, missionaries, etc..
Prophetic gifts, prophecy, hearing God’s voice, missionaries, etc..
Evangelism, outreaches, missionary, etc..
Pastoral care, pastoral counselling, missionaries, etc..
Teaching, Bible study, missionaries, etc – anyone can do that, etc

(Note: Anyone who got a Mission, any kind of Mission in the Kingdom of God, we can call them Missionaries, they are Missionaries, we are Missionaries.)

Apostolic ministries, Prophetic Ministries, Evangelical Ministries, Pastoral Ministries, Teaching Ministries, and the way they function in the Body of Christ…

All these things are important to know, especially for leaders these are important to know, and not just for leaders, but for the whole Body of Christ, it is important that every members in the Body of Christ to know and understand these things.
