Week 7 Introduction: Applying Scripture
“And behold, a hand touched me and set me trembling on my hands and knees. And he said to me, ‘O Daniel, man greatly loved, understand the words that I speak to you, and stand upright, for now I have been sent to you.’ And when he had spoken this word to me, I stood up trembling. Then he said to me, ‘Fear not, Daniel, for from the first day that you set your heart to understand and humbled yourself before your God, your words have been heard, and I have come because of your words'” (Daniel 10:10-12, English Standard Version)
We have learned that Christian leaders exhibit qualities such as perseverance, discernment and discretion in communication, and intentionality. Additionally, they are learned and demonstrate wisdom. Each of these qualities evidence the application of God’s word. As we have seen in the lives of Daniel, Shadrach, Meshach, and Abednego, humbling ourselves before God and setting our hearts to understand His truth is central to becoming true Christian leaders.
