"... And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers. And those he predestined, he also called; those he called, he also justified; those he justified, he also glorified." (Romans 8:28-30, NIV)

Conform: to give the same shape, outline, or contour to : bring into harmony or accord

At my church, Yahweh has placed me in leadership.

I didn't ask to be in leadership.

It was given to me.

It's His plan for my life.

A few days ago the Holy Spirit told me that the Lord did not place me in leadership just so I could introduce a bunch of good ideas. (If I have any ideas that are good, they come from Him. Only God is good.)

He said that He put me in leadership to conform me into the image of Christ who is the perfect leader and model of submission.

Jesus submitted to every authority instituted among men, to glorify his Father. (1 Peter 2:13-25)

In this way, Jesus pleased his Father, therefore the Father exalted him. (Philippians 2:1-18)

In this way, I want to please Him, too!
