Is being a kingdom leader a commitment to God? They recognize that they belong to the Lord and no longer live simply for themselves. In your bible read Romans 14:7-9 for an in-depth understanding of this value.
3. Kingdom Leaders must now share in Christ’s death and resurrection – they have died to themselves and have risen with him.
You are no longer the person you use to be. When you accepted Christ as your Lord and Savior, your old way of thinking was crucified on the cross along with your sins, and when you were raised along with Christ you became a citizen of the Kingdom of Heaven. You now have a new identity in Christ. In your bible read Philippians 3:20-21 for an in-depth understanding of this value.
4. Kingdom Leaders must recognize that everything of value is found in Christ.
Things of the world that once seemed important have lost their attraction; nothing compares to the infinite value of knowing Christ. In your bible read Philippians 3:7-11 for an in-depth understanding of this value. Having this mindset as a leader increases your leadership skills, and abilities.
