A Kingdom Leader honors God. She gives weight to God's opinion about issues in daily life. She does not assume that God's Word is irrelevant to the issues of the twenty-first century. She sees the opportunity to worship God in everyday events and activities. This requires a very practical awareness of God in every aspect of life.
Are you able to see the fingerprints of Jesus in your life? Can you see his touch in your home, work, community and private life? Do you understand the connection between God and everyday events? Or does God seem far away? Have you talked with Him today?
2 Peter 1:5–6 (ESV)
5 For this very reason, make every effort to supplement your faith iwith virtue,5 and virtue jwith knowledge, 6 and knowledge with self-control, and self-control kwith steadfastness, and steadfastness with godliness,
Godliness is piety but most importantly it is devotion to the person of God. You become aware of Him in every aspect of life! Very often that awareness comes from regular reading and study of the Bible. Can you live reverently, loyally and obediently to God? Others can see it in you voice, behavior and temperament.
