I want to begin the new year reflecting on what it means to Lead like Jesus. Specifically, I invite you to consider what we can learn about leading like Jesus from His death, burial and resurrection. This is the first of several posts I am going to write.
A commitment to excellence is not a leadership quality or ministry skill. It is a deeper, core issue. Excellence is a character issue; it is about the type of person you are and want to become. When we read what Paul wrote in Colossians 3.17 we understand excellence is also a spiritual issue. Check it out: “And whatever you do, whether in word or deed, do it all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him”
David gives us great spiritual leadership insight in Psalm 10:4 when He writes, “In his pride the wicked man does not seek him; in all his thoughts there is no room for God.” As spiritual leaders, we need to examine our thought-life, pursue humility and make ample room for God.
