1005 Two Principles That Leaders and Workers Must Grasp

1 In their work, church leaders and workers must pay attention to two things: One is to do their work exactly according to the principles stipulated by the work arrangements, never violating these principles and not basing their work on anything they might imagine or on their own intentions. In everything they do, they should show concern for the work of God’s family, and always put its interests first. There is the other thing which is key, and that is that in everything they do, they must focus on following the Holy Spirit’s guidance and do everything in strict keeping with the word of God.


2 If you are still capable of going against the Holy Spirit’s guidance, or if you stubbornly follow your own ideas and do things according to your own imagination, then your actions will constitute a most serious resistance against God. Frequently turning your back on the enlightenment and guidance of the Holy Spirit will only lead to a dead end. If you lose the work of the Holy Spirit, then you will not be able to work, and even if you do manage to work, you will accomplish nothing. These are the two main principles to abide by while working: One is to perform the work in exact accordance with the arrangements from the above, as well as to act according to the principles that have been set forth by the above. The other point is to follow the guidance of the Holy Spirit within. Once these two points are grasped, you will not easily make mistakes.
