The Greek word translated “devoted” carries the idea of “insisting on staying close to someone or something.”
What does that mean for spiritual leaders? It means they will…
…insist on staying close to people. A leader’s devotion to people means they learn their needs and assist them, especially to heaven.
…insist on staying close to the plan. The plan is the map. Leaders must not deviate from the plan, or the goal is unreachable.
…insist on staying close to the Lord. Leaders know the true source of their strength is not in themselves, but the Lord.
A leader’s devotion provides a foundation to great achievement.
