Leadership Focal Passage Luke 7:1-10 (NKJV)
The way to know how to LEAD is to learn how to FOLLOW.
1. RECOGNIZING Leadership
For I also am a man placed under authority,...
Let every soul be subject to the governing authorities. For there is no authority except from God, and the authorities that exist are appointed by God.
2. RESPECTING Leadership
Therefore whoever resists the authority resists the ordinance of God, and those who resist will bring judgment on themselves.
3. RECEIVING Leadership
“For I have come down from heaven, not to do My own will, but the will of Him who sent Me.”
Then Jesus, being filled with the Holy Spirit, returned from the Jordan and was led by the Spirit into the wilderness,
--Luke 2:51 (NASB)
And He went down with them and came to Nazareth, and He continued in subjection to them; and His mother treasured all these things in her heart.
Going to heaven is all about learning how to follow the leadership and the Lordship of Jesus Christ in your life, because He is the ultimate high-def leader.
