In both English and Greek definitions, the word devoted has similarities, but there is a powerful difference.
The English speaks of love and loyalty, but the Greek involves “insisting on staying close to someone or something.”
Spiritually, devoted leaders insist on staying close to the following.
People: They learn the needs of the people and help guide them to heaven.
Plan: The plan is the map. Leaders must not deviate from it, or the goal is unreachable.
Lord: Leaders know the true source of their strength is not themselves, but the Lord.
Through a leader’s devotion, a foundation is laid to great achievement.
