Celebration of Discipline :: Guidance

The Discipline of Guidance

“God does guide the individual richly and profoundly, but he also guides groups of people and can instruct the individual through the group experience.”

“‘If two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I in the midst of them’ (Matt. 18:19,20). In those words Jesus gave his disciples both assurance and authority. There was the assurance that when a people genuinely gathered in his name his will could be discerned.”

“God will implant a spirit of unity when the right path has been chosen and trouble us with restlessness when we have not heard correctly.”

“God appoints authoritative leadership in his Church so that his work may be done upon the earth.”
