From Isaiah 11: ...so the earth will be filled with people who know the Lord. In that day the heir to David’s throne will be a banner of salvation to all the world.
It is the knowledge of God, the understanding of His person and His ways, that sets the captive free. Never confuse your leadership with people’s ongoing freedom in Christ. It is He who sets captives free, and it is He that you have a mission to lead people to. Lead God’s people, but then get out of the way and direct their need and attention to Him, in the songs you choose for worship and in the words you speak in private.
Team Prayer: Jesus, only you can set the captives free. Help me to lead people to you, and not to myself.
