On Earth as it is in Heaven: Courage for Action

Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! ~ 2 Corinthians 5:17 (NIV) 

Now faith is confidence in what we hope for and assurance about what we do not see. ~ Hebrews 11:1 (NIV)

Devotion to Christ changes both His follower and the follower’s desires. The Christian leader seeks FIRST God’s kingdom and His righteousness, “and all these things will be given to you as well.” (Matthew 6:33 NIV) What else will be given to you? What do you want? What do you want that is in line with what God promises? (This intersection is His design for glorious living.) You know what God wants by seeking first his kingdom and his righteousness.

As a result, Christian leaders muster the courage to take action now on the things that are most important to them, based on their best discernment of God’s will in their lives. That’s worth repeating:

  • Leaders muster courage (because they are fearful of God’s will)
  • to take action now (because now is often all we get)
  • on what is most important (pre-determined priorities)
  • by discerning God’s will for their lives
