Some church leaders that obtain great results do not view themselves as leaders, but as servants with some spiritual maturity in recognizing His direction.
An opportunity for service that begins with apprehension can turn into an adventure as we anxiously await, "what comes next?" Pride can give way to humility upon realizing these accomplishments do not belong to us. It is His project. We were simply called to help along the way. What is viewed as Christian leadership can fall back to the washing of the feet. (John 13: 12-17)
How does our ability “to love our neighbor” grow? The more we follow “his will” with the talent entrusted to us, the more talent may be given. (See Matthew 25:14-29) It begins through prayer.
How far into God's grace will we take ourselves and others during this lifetime? Does our prayer life overly focus on asking for "this or that" as we attempt to balance on top of our wobbly path? Peace of mind comes from the result of asking to be taught the things needed to navigate our way upon His path.
What appreciation is felt at the point we comprehend the grace, patience, and love that God provides during our instruction in preparing us to be in His HOLY presence.
A daily prayer to consider:
Dear Heavenly Father,
Thank you for your patience and love as I learn of your grace. Please teach me the things that you would have me know.
