I. THE KINGS’ DIVINE CALLING ( Deuteronomy 17:14-20)

Jesus is the King of kings.The positions God puts us in are callings in His will and program. We must run to fulfill His eternal purpose. Anyone who uses his position to oppress OTHERS is on a collision course with God.  It is expected of us to honour God, bless the people and make disciples for Him in whatever position He places us. Do not use your calling against the caller or the followers. The day of reckoning is at hand.

A. MUST BE GOD’S DISCIPLE  (Deuteronomy 17:14-19)

“Be sure to appoint over you the king the Lord your God chooses. He must be from among your own brothers. Do not place a foreigner over you, one who is not a brother Israelite.” (Deuteronomy)

God determines the end from the beginning. Nothing catches Him unawares. He pre-empted His peoples’ desire for a king like the gentiles when they would finally settle in the Promised Land. He gave them prior instructions.They should not  appoint just anybody. Their king must: 

1. Be God’s own choice 
2. Be an Israelite by birth 
3. Be from among their own brothers
4. Never be a foreigner

Implication: Their king must be a follower of Yahweh who understands His mind and can communicate this to them. No leader can represent God to His people who is not a disciple of God himself. A leader who has been with Christ will definitely exhibit the character of Christ’s holiness. True leaders are disciples who do have no flair for worldliness and materialism. God’s word is a veritable tool for both Christian leaders and followers alike.

The problem the Church has today is with those who are not part of us  but are in our midst, and have risen within our ranks and files. 


B.  MUST BE READY TO ASSIST OTHERS (Deuteronomy 17:20)

“And not consider himself better than his brothers and turn from the law to the right or to the left. Then he and his descendants will reign a long time over his kingdom in Israel.” (Deut.17:20)

All people are equal! The king is expected to consider all his disciples as brethren and equals. In honour, he should consider his people first and not treat them as servants. Only then will he have the interest at heart to make the best out of them.

He must not consider himself above the people and the law, such that he would turn from the Lord. No one is above the law of God, whether the leader or the led. When the leader submits to the ultimate leadership of God, then he can lead others in the path of God. 

The reverberating effect of the king’s uprightness and faithfulness to God would springboard a lasting reign and sustainable peace. God is looking for leaders who are ready to cooperate with Him in the disciple-making process. A good disciple-maker must be caring, friendly, and assessable, with deep regard for the Word of God.

May our good God of Israel bless you all in Jesus Christ’s Name.
