A Kingdom Leader has a mind that is shaped by the Word of God. That means there is a continual focus on observations and questions about the Bible and it’s truth. Those observations and questions produce answers that demand a change in thinking and behavior. Very often those changes require a paradigm shift that is not always comfortable or easy. According to Jesus, God the Father prunes and cleanses us. Much of that pruning is from His Word.
Are you open to new truths taught by our Lord in the Bible? Do you feel that you already understand what the Bible says? Do you stay and live in the Word? What has been cleansed from your life recently by His Word? Are you running ahead of the teaching of Christ? Jesus said to his disciples that they should remain in Him. Then you can bear fruit. . . or be more fruitful. . . or bear much fruit.
Jesus said, If you remain in me and my words remain in you, ask whaterver you wish, and it will be given you. This is to my father’s glory, that you bear much fruit, showing yourselves to be my disciples.(1)
Abide, persist and live in Him. It will shape how you think, feel and live.
