Cana 90 – Fifth Week of Easter Tuesday
Take Me to Your Leader
“They appointed presbyters for them in each church and, with prayer and fasting, commended them to the Lord in whom they had put their faith.”
~ Acts of the Apostles 14:23
This passage speaks to us on two levels and in ways that are sometimes difficult and certainly counter cultural.
#1: They appointed presbyters, in other words leaders. Those who would form and lead others. This shows a hierarchy. Similar to the hierarchy of the family and the Church.
#2: With Prayer and Fasting they commended them to the Lord.
….They prayed and fasted – not exactly popular ways to support our leaders, but very scriptural and necessary.
So, here are two poignant questions:
How is the hierarchy of your family? Do you respect and support your spouse within the realms of Christian marriage?
Do you fast and pray for your spouse? If not, try it. It WILL change your marriage!
