[The apostles to the church in Jerusalem concerning ministering to the widows:] “And so, brothers, select seven men who are well respected and are full of the Spirit and wisdom. We will give them this responsibility.”
Almost every religion defines spirituality a little bit differently. However, a follower of Christ defines authentic spirituality based upon a person having the Holy Spirit living within them. A true servant leader among Jesus’ followers is a person who is well respected and who is full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom. These are the characteristics that qualify a person to have the responsibility of being a servant leader. Respect and wisdom are vital to serve and lead well in almost any area of life. However, to serve and lead well in the kingdom of God, these qualities must be informed and empowered by the work of the Holy Spirit.
O Lord God, my Abba Father, I pray for those who are servant leaders for your people. Please be with us, your children, as we seek to recognize servant leaders in whom you are at work. Help us to see their wisdom and to follow them with respect. Father, please help us see those whom your Spirit is influencing, maturing, and leading. In Jesus’ name, I pray. Amen.
