Holy Spirit and Wisdom

“And so, brothers, select seven men who are well respected and are full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will give them this responsibility.” – (Acts 6:3)

Almost every religion defines spirituality a little bit differently. However, a follower of Christ defines authentic spirituality based upon a person having the Holy Spirit living within them. A leader among Jesus’ followers is a person who is well respected and who is full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom. This is what qualifies that person to have the responsibility of leading.

Respect and wisdom are vital to lead well in almost any area of life. However, to lead well in the Kingdom of God, these qualities must be informed and empowered by the work of the Holy Spirit.

Prayer : O Lord God, my Abba Father, I pray for those who lead your people. Please be with us, your children, as we seek to recognize leaders in whom you are at work. Help us to see their wisdom and to follow them with respect. Most of all, Father, please help us see those whom your Spirit is influencing, maturing, and leading. In Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
