Proverbs 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know. 6 in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight.

In the economy of God's Kingdom, there is no leadership but that of the Holy Spirit.

We are called to go and make disciples. A disciple is fundamentally a follower. In the kingdom of God, they are a follower of Jesus Christ.


John 13:34-35 "A new commandment I give to you, that you love one another: just as I have loved you, you also are to love one another. By this, all people will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another.”

In the world, leadership is highly valued. But in the kingdom of God, it is servanthood that is the path to greatness. So what is a true Disciple of Christ?

Rick Howerton Sums it up very well...
"IF someone exhibits love toward others, learns and lives the expectations unearthed in Scripture, denies self in all situations, has as their first relational allegiance Jesus Christ, and will die for the cause of Christ, then they can rest assured, they are a disciple of Jesus Christ."

All that are led by the Spirit of God, they are the children of God.
The greatest among you will be servant of all

PROVOKE!

Where is it used in the Bible?

This will help you make sense of my March 7th posts...

Prov. 3:5 Trust in the Lord with all your heart. Never rely on what you think you know.
6 Remember (Recognize) the Lord in everything you do, and he will show you the right way. 7 Never let yourself think that you are wiser than you are; simply obey the Lord and refuse to do wrong.
