Good Morning Warrior!
Hallelujah! It’s the Lord’s Day!
Word for the Day:
“Godly Leadership and Discipleship “
Text: Exodus 18: 19-20
“Listen now to my voice; I will give you counsel, and God will be with you: Stand before God for the people, so that you may bring the difficulties to God.
And you shall teach them the statutes and the laws, and show them the way in which they must walk and the work they must do.”
“Godly Leadership and Discipleship,” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning.
Jethro’s advise with God’s approval gave Moses a Pattern for Godly Leadership and Discipleship; Praying and Teaching the People of God, like our Commander Jesus Christ Leads you and I as His Warrior and His Church.
This godly Pattern can only be exercised by a godly Servant Leader that “stands before God for the people” as His Under-shepherd. Then the servant leader must delegate their authority to able people, full of the Truth of God’s Word, who fear God and hate coveteousness. This delegation of authority is to develop and train the people , “showing them the way in which they must walk, and the work they must do.” We call this Discipleship.
Teaching both the leaders and the people the Law will help the leaders lead and also help the people to have access to a leader for most disputes; instead of waiting in line all day!
Paul told Timothy this principle:
“You therefore, my son, be strong in the grace that is in Christ Jesus.
And the things that you have heard from me among many witnesses, commit these to faithful men who will be able to teach others also.(2Tim.2:2).
This Principle of Godly Leadership and Discipleship can be practiced in our Family, in our church, and even in our business or employment; as Warriors “stand before God for the people they lead and teach and disciple them.
This is godly leadership and discipleship. Oooooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
Jesus and Billy
