Do You Lead Like An Adult? (Part 1)
These are the commands, decrees and laws the Lord your God directed me to teach you to observe in the land that you are crossing the Jordan to possess, so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life.
If you wait until someone needs character to teach it to them it is too late. I may not be able to see the future but God can, I am responsible to build the character others need before they experience a need for it.
Adults model and disciple others to live convicted that…
I answer to God
so that you, your children and their children after them may fear the Lord your God as long as you live by keeping all his decrees and commands that I give you, and so that you may enjoy long life.
2 Corinthians 5:10
For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, so that each of us may receive what is due us for the things done while in the body, whether good or bad.
I am loved by God
1 John 4:9-10
This is how God showed his love among us: He sent his one and only Son into the world that we might live through him. This is love: not that we loved God, but that he loved us and sent his Son as an atoning sacrifice for our sins.
I am training to be like Christ.
Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters,[a] whenever you face trials of many kinds, because you know that the testing of your faith produces perseverance. Let perseverance finish its work so that you may be mature and complete, not lacking anything.
I experience incredible Joy when I share life with Jesus (Give it away)
Though you have not see him, you love him; and even though you do not see him now, you believe in him and are filled with an inexpressible glorious joy
