The Need for a Man In Between/Authority

I was just sitting here thinking of an old message I heard a long time ago.  There’s such a need for a man in between. 

We just need some Abraham’s & Moses’s.  Some men that went on the behalf of other people.  I love the story of how Moses repented for the people & God pardoned His judgement from falling on them.  Not because of what they did or prayed.  But it was Moses standing in proxy for a fallen people. 

I am on a journey with the Lord.  He’s showing me this beautiful thing of leadership & authority.  That apart from God’s authority we could never achieve God’s calling.  To step outside of God’s authority is to step outside of protection. 

Today in our staff meeting a vision was just even more clearly stated & I’m committed to that mission.  I’m mandated by Christ Himself to make disciples.  Baptize them. 

This coming Sunday as of today I know of 3 young people that are going to be baptized.  I’m praying that they get this concept of authority.

We need people that understand this & when you do, there is no fear to stand in the gap for other people.  I use to be afraid of that.  Now I thrive for it.  The reason I keep doing what I’m doing is not because it’s a profession.  But it’s because of the young people who come from broken home, neglected, misunderstood, abused, lost a family member to death, been misused, abused, raped, molested, beat, starved, hopeless, suicidal, etc…you name it, I welcome it.  Because never will a kid walk away from me & think that God nor myself doesn’t value them.

Listen up everyone, YOU MATTER!  God said He takes care of every little bird in the air.  There’s no such thing as a bakers dozen with God.  You’re not the extra junk thrown in with the deal.  You’re specific.  You have value.  You have talents.  You’re special.  You’re loved!

Love ya,

Josh
