No Ordinary Leader

No Ordinary Leader

Jesus’ leadership was so out of the ordinary that the religious rulers of His day didn’t recognize Him as Messiah. How could God’s Anointed One consort with ordinary people? How could He spend time with the undesirables of society? How could He touch the untouchable and unclean? Make no mistake, Jesus was no ordinary leader. He didn’t cocoon Himself from the ills of the world. He wasn’t immune from experiencing deprivation. He loved the unlovable and made His daily life among ordinary people. He invested in the lives of the common person. He made Himself available to those who needed Him most. What about you?

When the teachers of the law who were Pharisees saw him eating with the sinners and tax collectors, they asked his disciples: “Why does he eat with tax collectors and sinners?” – Mark 2:16

Prayer: God, I don’t want to be an ordinary leader. I want to be like Jesus. Show me those who need Your touch through my presence. In Jesus’ name I pray, amen.
