In a recent trip to New Hampshire, my airline ticket was labeled “elite access.” The status only allowed me to board the plane earlier than others. However, it had me thinking about spiritual matters.
What does “elite access” really mean?
Being elite must mean something special because it is defined as being considered the best in a particular area or field. Generally, eliteness is associated with power, wealth, or ability. Sadly, the idea behind being elite is based in one’s own power, wealth, or ability.
Spiritual leadership carries an elite characteristic. The idea does not carry any thought of self-centered talent or achievement. This characteristic is about who made our status possible.
Through the sacrifice of Christ the riches of God’s grace were abundantly poured forth to all who come to Him through obedient faith. The result provides us with “elite access” to the throne of God.
Christians make up this elite class of spiritual leaders. Knowing the outcome of Christ’s work on the cross, we have a responsibility to help others share in the access we have been given to an eternal destination. Think Souls!
