In June we hosted our very first Revolutionized Leadership Interactive Webinar and here is what we talked about: The Role of the ELP Rep as Spiritual Parents. At our last Rep’s webinar we looked at the relationship between spiritual parents and true sons and daughters. Spiritual parents are dependent on God to guide the way that true sons and daughters walk in. God has a part to play and we have a part to play. God’s part is that He will dwell in us, He will walk with us, He will be our God and He has called us His children. Our part? To be separate (Rom 8:14-16).
There are 3 essential ingredients in operation in this relationship between spiritual parents and sons and daughters. Spiritual parents teach the Word of God, the Holy Spirit comes with power and brings revelation and, we are exemplary leaders before them – a specimen worthy of imitation (1 Thess 1:4-5, NASB). When we teach the Word, truth is revealed to the point where “it’s no longer outward conformity but intrinsic, inward change” (Greg Hammond).
The objectives of operating in the School of the Spirit is our sons and daughters have confidence in God; fear is removed, their beliefs change, their values change and they make the main thing the main thing – dependence on the Holy Spirit is their daily walk. In addition, everything we do is motivated by love and, we teach our sons and daughters to make the first commandment first place in their lives – love God with all their heart, mind, soul and strength.
So what are 2 or 3 practical things we can do daily to make this process a part of our TC culture? Listen to the recording of the webinar to learn more.
