Becoming a disciple: Leading with others of the same heart

Scripture – 2 Kings 10:15

And he greeted him and said to him, “Is your heart true to my heart as mine is to yours?” And Jehonadab answered, “It is.”

Observation

Jehu and Jehonadab had the same heart for the LORD. There is something powerful when you have a brother in Christ who thinks the same way – having hearts true to each other. There is trust when there is unity. Jehu invited his friend to join him in his chariot, to ride with him, to lead with him at his right hand. They shared the same zeal for God and that provided the backdrop for their friendship.

Application

In friends and people who I invite into the chariot of leadership with me, let me look for kindred spirits, people with the same passion and zeal for God. This is what can be counted on in hard times.

Prayer

Father, you know my heart. Let me be drawn to those who share the same heart, the same passion for you. Let them be drawn to me. As I pray for specific leaders to rise to the surface to take on areas of ministry, let their hearts glow so that I might recognize them. For your glory, in the name of Jesus, amen.
