Follow Jesus

Follow Jesus

Leading like Jesus is not a philosophy or strategy that can simply be adopted and implemented at will. Leading like Jesus begins with following Jesus, and following Jesus involves having a personal relationship with Him. That relationship begins with an introduction. It grows increasingly intimate as we reorient our lives around spending time in His presence, so that we learn to recognize the sound of His voice, and follow where He leads. As our lives are influenced by Jesus, we begin to reflect Him in our leadership. Follow Jesus as you step into your leadership role and responsibilities today.

Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me. —John 12:26

Prayer: Jesus, thank You for the privilege of knowing and following You. Transform us as we closely follow You and spend time in Your presence. May we lead like You today, and so reflect You to those around us. In Your name we pray, amen.
