Andy Stanley — Leading Great
We don't usually associate leadership with the church. Leadership is about what could and should be. We assume the church is about what has been. But Jesus was the greatest leader who ever lived. He modeled a unique approach to leadership that defies our expectations and changed the world.
Jesus leveraged his authority for the benefit of those under his authority. Following Jesus means that when we find ourselves in positions of authority, we do the same.
Whether you’re a parent, a boss, or a coach, you’re a leader in someone’s life. Leading like Jesus means serving. It means leveraging your authority on behalf of those under your authority. It means looking for opportunities to do for one what you wish you could do for everyone.
Imagine what would happen in our communities, our nation, and the world if Christians were leaders like that in their homes and workplaces.
