Each year at this time, a course on Biblical Leadership begins. The overall depth of the class evolved from numerous sources and much help from long-time leaders.
Over the next few weeks, we will look at several areas characterizing biblical leaders, beginning with – they know God and His will.
One post will never cover the depth of this concept. Jesus prayed with the thought that eternal life is wrapped up in knowing God (Jn. 17:3).
Peter speaks of the necessity of growing in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior (2 Pet. 3:18).
Paul’s thought to the church at Philippi captures a greater depth of knowing God. He was willing to give up everything and consider it worthless to know Jesus, “the power of His resurrection, the fellowship of His sufferings, being conformed to His death” (Phil. 3:10).
The word translated “know” in this context involves the deepest form of knowing by personally experiencing the same. The idea represents a powerful thought and example for us to consider for our own biblical leadership. Do we know God and His will?
