The Victory of God, The Kingdom of God

Thinking about Victory of God, takes me to the leaders and people. How can a leader see God’s victory in the life of His children?
It is better to change the title of “leader” to “servant” because of the real meaning of Christian life! I am amazed when thinking about servants and leaders. I did research about the words LEADER and SERVANT in the Biblical Hebrew language. I am amazed by the results! 502 words for SERVANT and only 3 words for LEADER – which refer to GOD only! How the real meaning is changing in this generation’s language!
God is our leader and we are all serving Him. Servants of God should never think about personal respect and having followers, they should think about God’s Kingdom and Victory. Servants can get abused, hurt, and ignored and that is okay because they know this from beginning. Basically they are serving under God’s leadership.
Servants should always ask God’s forgiveness for those who persecute them; and we have learned this from Jesus Christ. A servant doesn’t know about the future but the Leader, God, knows. The Leader knows how to handle all the situations. A servant doesn’t see people’s heart, soul, and mind – only the Leader, God, can see and lead others to His peace by His grace. A servant should never judge others but God will because He knows and see everything. We use His Word as a guide to serve people and we are the servants of His Kingdom. We are the witnesses of His Victory – much like Moses and Philips were.
37Then He said to His disciples, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.
We all are the workers for our Leader.
38“Therefore beseech the Lord of the harvest to send out workers into His harvest.”
How can I ignore God’s victory and put His Victory in my own resume? Jesus never put anything on his resume! He always glorified His Father’s name. He showed people how a good servant must be. We need to point to this and help everyone to connect to our Leader, Jesus Christ.
Today, the world sacrifices the next generation for their profit and fun. Jesus shows us how we have to live. Sacrificing our life to keep the truth – even if that costs us our life – and honor His LEADERSHIP through the work of Holy Spirit. That is why there is no credit for us because of His leadership.
1 Peter 2:21
New International Version
To this you were called, because Christ suffered for you, leaving you an example, that you should follow in his steps.
I see how details are getting ignored. Misinterpretation of the details are slowly changing the real meaning of Christianity in truth and it is our responsibly to bring attention to the real meaning of Love and Care in the highest.
