Please take out your Bible and Read through Ezra 7:10
Ezra: Being Before Doing
On the basis of King Artaxerxes’ decree, Ezra traeled from Babylon to Jerusalem (Ezra 7:1-10). As a priest he felt committed to establishing spiritual priorities among the people, especially as it pertained to their new temple. One verse reflects the heart of a leader fully committed to his God: “For Ezra had prepared his heart to seek the Law of the Lord, and to do it, and to teach statutes and ordinances in Israel” (7:10). Do you see the order of priorities in his leaders in his leadership?
1. Learn it: Ezra studied and discovered the truth himself.
2. Live it: Ezra practiced and applied what he had lerned.
3. Loan it: Ezra passed on to others what he had already embraced.
Successful leaders must learn to follow Ezra’s model. Dwight L. Moody suggested the greatest tragedy of his day was the Christian leaders attempted to traffic in unlived truth. It is our tragedy as well. We cannot give away what we don’t incarnate. We must import truth before we export truth. God wants to construct our “being” before our “doing.”
