What is the purpose of the gifts God has given you? Read 1Peter 4:10-11.
As each one has received a gift, minister it to one another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. If anyone speaks, let him speak as the oracles of God. If anyone ministers, let him do it as with the ability which God supplies, that in all things God may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom belong the glory and the dominion forever and ever. Amen.
Reflect on the following actions that can help you become the leader God desires.
Would you like to be a leader who is set apart from the crowd? Read 1Peter 1:13-16. Consider how you can apply the following four suggestions for being a leader who is set apart from the crowd.
- Gird your Mind: Prepare your mind. Remember, you answer to God (Job 38:3 and Eph 6:14).
- Give your Attention: Be sober. Pay attention to what’s happening and cry out to God when you get off track (1The 5:6 and 1Pet 5:8).
- Guard your Heart: Rest your hope. The more you focus on your future inheritance, the more joy you will have (Rom 15:12-13 and Php 4:7).
- Guide your Behavior: Behave to please God. Every step you take toward becoming like Christ pleases Him (1The 2:12 and Eph 6:6).
