Fueled by Love

Fueled by Love

The world uses anger, impatience, judgment, and fear to change people and situations. Such tactics may yield temporary, outward conformity, but they are worthless when it comes to transforming hearts, minds, and lives. Jesus demonstrates a different way to make a lasting difference in people’s lives: He chose to live a life of love. Jesus’ love fueled His resolve to do whatever it took to accomplish His mission. Love issued forth in patient instruction, strengthened resolve, courageous stances, compassionate acts, and selfless service. Love meant that He spoke the truth, even when people didn’t want to hear it. The same love that sent Him into the world fueled His teaching and ministry. What fuels your leadership?

Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. —John 13:14-15

Prayer: Jesus, may love fuel our leadership as it did Yours. We pray in Your name, amen.
