A Kingdom Leader is just like a soldier. They work hard, suffer much and endure to serve the lives of others. It means going to pains, exerting and enduring to accomplish goals established by the commander. It means survival on an active battlefield. A good soldier is always aware of potential threats. He partners with others for mutual protection in the heated battles of life and leadership.
Do you recognize the spiritual battle around your ministry service? Who is your partner in ministry? Who is walking the battlefield with you? Do you cover your partner’s back while they cover yours? Jesus had partners throughout his ministry. But he also had the resilience to suffer the cross alone. Are you ready for that sacrifice?
We are praying for the battles you face today.
