What do we need to unlearn in order to lead like Jesus? What patterns of life and leadership that we have accepted and relied upon does Jesus call us to lay down? God calls us to unlearn habits of self-indulgence, people-pleasing, and prideful assumptions that ‘we know what is best’ and learn to live in self-control, humility, and God-confidence for the benefit of others. Let the Leader in you show!

You were taught, with regard to your former way of life, to put off your old self, which is being corrupted by its deceitful desires; to be made new in the attitude of your minds; and to put on the new self, created to be like God in true righteousness and holiness.—Ephesians 4:22-24

Holy Spirit, cleanse our hearts and minds, we pray. Break the patterns that have held us captive, transform us from the inside out, teach us new ways to lead, in Jesus’ name and for the glory and honor of the Father, amen.
