✨The greatest leader that ever lived was and is Jesus. I can’t even scratch the surface as to what made Him so effective. Without financial resources, he established the largest organization of all times. Over 3B people profess faith in Him.
✨While many of our leaders work our down-fall due to their inner insecurities; Jesus wanted His disciples to outshine Him. He said, ‘greater works than these shall you do.’ While most of our leaders want to be served, their brief-cases carried; Jesus came to serve. He washed the disciples’ feet.
✨While most of our leaders extort money from their followers; never once did Jesus ask anyone for money in any name – tithe, offering or otherwise. While our leaders of all fronts live in posh estates far from their followers; Jesus never owned a house.
✨While many of our leaders move in entourages; Jesus walked as He carried His earthly mission and rode a colt of a donkey as He entered Jerusalem. While most of our leaders wait for a red carpet to be laid for them; Jesus simply sat on a mountain and began to teach without waiting for a podium.
✨While we avoid being associated with those deemed societal rejects like prostitutes; Jesus allowed such a one to kiss and anoint His feet with oil. While we take advantage of the vulnerable in the society; Jesus restored the woman from Samaria with a relational crisis – When Jesus met her, she was living with someone’s husband for the 6th time.
✨While many our leaders take advantage of the poor; Jesus was filled with compassion when He saw the needs of humanity. His public invitation is unprecedented in human history. “Come unto me all ye that labour and are heavy laden and I will give you rest – Math 11:28.”
✨While many of our leaders take advantage of their followers, Jesus laid down His life for His friends. “Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down His life for His friends – John 15:13.”
✨While we revenge against our enemies; Jesus asked God to forgive those who crucified Him. While we are all surrounded by controversies and sinful living; Jesus led by His own life. He challenged people in public to prove Him of sin – John 8:46. Even the Quran calls Him righteous – Surah Ali ‘Imran 3:46.
✨He redefined the course of humanity. Dating, for instance is based on His life, B.C. and A.D. More books are written about Him than any other human being. More songs are sung about Him than any other human being. Many laws today are based on His teachings.
✨He never deviated from His mission for temporal gain. The people he fed wanted to make Him their king. He refused. That He knew His mission came out strongly during His public trial. He told Pontius Pilate, “To this end came I into the world and for this cause was I born – John 18:37.”
✨By use of parables, His message was revolutionary. He preached for only 3 years. His words like a magnet attracted and repelled people in equal measure. To this very day, His words are never neutral. They either attract you or repel you.
✨At His birth, 3 wise men from the East travelled hundreds of miles following His star in search of Him. And when they found Him, they worshipped Him. Two thousand years later, wise men still seek and worship Him. That’s why I have committed my life to Him as Saviour and Lord.
