God’s Passionate Driven Leader

 

Personal qualities of the Christian leader:

 

A leader serves like THE Leader.

 

If we were to pick one word in describing Jesus’ leadership, might it not be the word “servant”?

The Servant Himself, summarized, “The Son of Man did not come to be served but to serve, and to give His life as a ransom for many” Mark 10:45Mark 10:45
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

45 porque el Hijo del hombre no vino para ser servido, sino para servir y para dar su vida en rescate por todos.w

, “Your attitude should be the same as that of Jesus Christ: Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped, but made Himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant” Philippians 2:5-7Philippians 2:5-7
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

5 Haya, pues, en vosotros este sentirg que hubo también en Cristo Jesús:h 6 Él, siendo en forma de Dios, no estimó el ser igual a Diosi como cosa a que aferrarse, 7 sino que se despojó a sí mismo,j tomó la forma de siervok y se hizo semejante a los hombres.l

Of course, Christ had authority and used it when necessary. Of course, He took the bull by the horns and made decisions when called for. Of course, He chastised what was wrong and did so even strongly. But His style was to love, not force; to guide, not dominate; to give, not get; to lead by service, not dictation. Remember that night before He went to the cross in His greatest service of all and for all? On bent knees, with a hand basin, and a drying towel, He washed feet, the feet of His followers. Washing the feet of those contentious, power-hungry disciples, He gave them a vivid lesson in leadership. THE Leader’s words that night, “The greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves” Luke 22:26Luke 22:26
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

26 pero no así vosotros, sino que el mayor entre vosotros sea como el más joven, y el que dirige, como el que sirve,q

ought to ring constantly in the ears of every Christian leader.

 

 

A Christian leader, like the Leader, leads through humble service , not heavy-handed control. The Leader once said it and a Christian leader still hears it, “The greatest among you shall be like the youngest; and the one who rules like the one who serves” Luke 22:26Luke 22:26

A leader sets a good example like THE Leader.

 

Though we’ve already touched on this quality, we want to amplify. One of the words used in Scripture for the serving gift of leadership is proi/sthmi Romans 12:8Romans 12:8
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

8 el que exhorta, en la exhortación; el que reparte, con generosidad; el que preside, con solicitud; el que hace misericordia, con alegría.k

. The verb means to stand in front of, not miles ahead, but in sight so that you can be followed and copied. “Set an example for the believers in speech, in life, in love, in faith and in purity,” 1 Timothy 4:121 Timothy 4:12
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

12 Ninguno tenga en poco tu juventud,i sino sé ejemplo de los creyentes en palabra, conducta, amor, espíritu, fe y pureza.

.  Christ made people follow Him by showing them what He was doing for them. He won their following with His example instead of demanding it from them. Greater and better action can be expected from those who respect a leader’s example.

 

Someone once said, “What you do speaks so loudly I can’t hear what you say.” Words and memos have been and always will be a poor second to a good example. Those who would lead need to remember this and will take Christ’s example for their guide.

 

 

A leader shares the vision of THE Leader.

 

No one can accuse Jesus of a lack of vision. He knew what His mission was and put His all into it. In the temple as a twelve-year-old He told His parents, “Didn’t you know I had to be in My Father’s house?” Luke 2:49Luke 2:49
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

49 Entonces él les dijo: --¿Por qué me buscabais? ¿No sabíais que en los negocios de mi Padre me es necesario estar?h

By the well in Samaria the first year of His ministry He told His disciples, “My food is to do the will of Him who sent Me and to finish His work” John 4:34John 4:34
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

34 Jesús les dijo: --Mi comida es que haga la voluntad del que me envió y que acabe su obra.o

. On the cross in that mid-day darkness He told the world, “It is finished” John 19:30John 19:30
Spanish: Biblia Reina Valera - revisión de 1995 - RVR95

30 Cuando Jesús tomó el vinagre, dijo: --¡Consumado es! E inclinando la cabeza, entregó el espíritu.

. He had the vision and carried out His mission of salvation. The Leader knew His mission and went about it.

 

The first task of the leader is to make sure that everybody sees the mission, hears it, lives it. If you lose sight of your mission, you begin to stumble and it shows very, very fast. An effective leader grasps Christ’s vision, shares His mission and helps others to do the same. His concern is to help them become co-workers and fellow-soldiers, not bleacher, sitters and sideline-spectators.
