Epic Leadership

                                                    ~Walk Humbly~

You are going be be completely amazed when you read about this! If your follow up with some simple research over some of what I am going to write about you will grow so much in your faith in becoming a leader.

I have read 20 or more books on leadership, which has been great for me as a person in direct sales & helping others succeed. Never have I been taught or read about one of the most powerful Leaders in the Bible~ Josiah (2 Kings 22 7 23). A little history before Josiah becomes King, his dad & his grandpa we full bore idolators & Judah was absolutely hugely corrupt.  His Grandpa, Manasseh was an awful King. 2 Kings 21~ the full chapter will give a better feel for how jacked up this guy “this King over Judah” was. You will also discover Josiah father, whom was just as bad as Manasseh~ if not worse. All right there in the 21st chapter of Kings 21.

mark connelyI am so excited for you to learn about our main character Josiah. So let unpack some of what I learned from our Pastor Mark Connelly, as I am sharing what I learned in the past two weeks at Missions Church, Gilbert AZ. You will want to read these scriptures yourself.mission-orange-tag_normal

Who are you influencing or have a leadership role in their life?
Who is it that you are following or look to for guidance?

2 Kings 22:2 States that Josiah followed God completely and “…not turning aside to the
right or to the left.”

As we begin to read parts of these scriptures, you will begin to understand it does not matter where you came from, who raised or what you had to experience as child. You can become all that God has promised in His word….

Josiah was eight years old when he became king, and he reigned in Jerusalem thirty-one years. His mother was Jedidah, the daughter of Adaiah from Bozkath. He did what was pleasing in the Lord’s sight and followed the example of his ancestor David. He did not turn away from doing what was right.

Hilkiah the high priest said to Shaphan the court secretary, “I have found the Book of the Law in the Lord’s Temple!”  “Your officials have turned over the money collected at the Temple of the Lord to the workers and supervisors at the Temple.

When the king heard what was written in the Book of the Law, he tore his clothes in despair. Then he gave these orders to Hilkiah the priest, Ahikam son of Shaphan, Acbor son of Micaiah, Shaphan the court secretary, and Asaiah the king’s personal adviser: “Go to the Temple and speak to the Lord for me and for the people and for all Judah. Inquire about the words written in this scroll that has been found. For the Lord’s great anger is burning against us because our ancestors have not obeyed the words in this scroll. We have not been doing everything it says we must do.”
“Leadership is a seed planted; not a switch that is flipped.” What do
you think he meant by that and how do we plant the seeds for good leadership in our
lives?mark connely

Read 2 Kings 22:19 carefully and use it as the background for answering the following
questions:
• Josiah himself was not the one who had set up idols in the land and encouraged
people to worship them; yet, he accepts that he is part of the group of people who
are in trouble even though he isn’t the one “sinning”. When Josiah realized that Judah and Israel had sinned against God, he didn’t blame the people but made himself one of them and repented. From a leadership perspective, talk about blaming others verses making yourself one with the group.• How did Josiah in essence “humble himself”? What specifically do you think he did? What was his attitude at the time?What does this mean and what would it look like in a good leader?

                            “Leadership Is Shared”
Josiah followed God completely with all his heart. If you were to follow God with all
your heart, what would that look like in your life? What would you be doing differently?
Do your priorities reflect someone who is following God completely? What change
could you make this week to move in this direction?
Josiah basically “owned” the sins of his ancestors and those around him and repented of
them. Are there sins of others around you that you need to “own” and repent of? What
are these and what would repentance and humility look like in this situation?
At what level to you allow God to speak to you through the scriptures? If you were
following God completely, what would good habits be in regards to the Bible? Are these
habits true in your life?
Here is the video of Pastor Mark sharing & teaching about Epic Leadership:

Leader’s lead the wayShow the way

Commitment is all in, anything else is just experimentation!

What habit can you form this week to become aligned better with scripture?

Thank you for reading my blog….
