Jesus Redefined Leadership

 

Are you a leader?

How would you define leadership?

How effective is your form of leadership?

Do people like following you?

Where are you taking them?

What are your real objectives?


Twenty years ago, this was what formed in my mind:

The greatest leaders are those

who cause others to know.


This morning, this is where the Holy Spirit led me to, refocusing my vision:

Matthew 23:11 

King James Version

11 But he that is greatest among you 

shall be your servant.


Greatness is no longer measured by what you can teach others, or whether you inform them.

Unless you are informing them about God, that is no purposeful information.

The world is steeped in disinformation, if anything.

By the grace of God, the Lord helped us.

He sent His Son to inform us.

Jesus redefined leadership.

He said the greatest leaders are servants.

That's revolutionary, in a world designed for ego, greed, vanity, disinformation, and ambition.

Jesus wants us to love God, and others.

That's a 180-degree turn from how the world's been operating for so long.

But it's the only one that makes sense.

This world has a chance for survival, if we seek God.

With our only aim to serve, to love, and to get God's Word right.

Following the example of Jesus, our only desire must be to lead everyone to the Father, the One who deserves ALL the glory.

Now, leadership is of a different sort, especially if you're born again.

Once you're born again, the Holy Spirit will start teaching you everything about Jesus, for the Holy Spirit is the "Spirit of truth".

He has a very great role in teaching us everything about Christ.

Jesus did say:

John 15:26 (KJV)

26 But when the Comforter is come, 

whom I will send unto you from the Father, 

even the Spirit of truth, 

which proceedeth from the Father, 

he shall testify of me:


Everything will now be defined if we have Jesus in it.

The very survival of this world hinges upon our knowledge, belief, and acceptance of Jesus.

Whether it's work, leadership, life, relationships, the only question that matters now is this -- is Jesus in it?

Ideally, Jesus is it.

The world is chaotic because we follow a different leader.

The pretender to the throne of God.

The fallen one.

How can he inform us of God, when He is the very antithesis of God?

He does all he can to keep us in darkness.

But Jesus is Light.

John 8:12 (KJV)

12 Then spake Jesus again unto them, saying, 

I am the light of the world: 

he that followeth me shall not walk in darkness, 

but shall have the light of life.


Surely, you've tried everything.

Has it worked?

I invite you to commit yourself to the Lord's way.

A good start would be to become born again, so you can understand the ways of the Spirit.

Let the Holy Spirit of God teach you.

Let Him lead you to the truth you've longed so much for.

And prepare for the most wonderful adventure of your life!

You will be the rare leader, the world needs so much of.
