Jesus was the greatest leader in the history of the world. His model of leadership empowers. When we look at Jesus we will be motivated to ask what kind of leader we are. If I have false ideas of my strength, Jesus will expose my incompetence. When I feel totally beyond what I am capable of, he provides for me God’s enabling power. When we look at Jesus we can become leaders who create vision and empower change.
Some leaders work within situations, transformational leaders change situations. Some leaders accept talk about change, transformational leaders change what can be talked about. Some leaders talk about benefits; transformational leaders talk about vision and dreaming big. Some leaders talk about what they can accomplish; transformational leaders talk about how “teamwork makes the dream work.” (borrowed from John Maxwell)
I believe the world is desperate for transformational leadership. When we look at Jesus we can become leaders who create vision and empower change. Through Jesus we can become a transformational leader. Are you a transformational leader?
