“And so, brothers, select seven men who are well respected andÂ are full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will give them thisÂ responsibility.”Â – (Acts 6:3)
Almost every religion defines spirituality a little bitÂ differently. However, a follower of Christ defines authenticÂ spirituality based upon a person having the Holy Spirit livingÂ within them. A leader among Jesus’ followers is a person who isÂ well respected and who is full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom. ThisÂ is what qualifies that person to have the responsibility ofÂ leading.
Respect and wisdom are vital to lead well in almost anyÂ area of life. However, to lead well in the Kingdom of God, theseÂ qualities must be informed and empowered by the work of the HolyÂ Spirit.
Prayer : O Lord God, my Abba Father, I pray for those who lead yourÂ people. Please be with us, your children, as we seek to recognizeÂ leaders in whom you are at work. Help us to see their wisdom and toÂ follow them with respect. Most of all, Father, please help us seeÂ those whom your Spirit is influencing, maturing, and leading. InÂ Jesus’ name I pray. Amen.
