Leaders who impact lives for eternity understand what it means to live on mission with Jesus. Stephen was such a leader. His love for Christ was deep, his knowledge of God’s truth was wide, and his responsiveness to the Holy Spirit earned him a reputation among his peers of being a cut above. Stephen also reminds us that our finest moment of Kingdom service may be our last … but its worth it! Stephen’s legacy isn’t measured by his life accomplishments. His impact can only truly be appreciated when you realize the defining influence he had on a young zealous Jewish man who witnessed and approved of Stephen’s execution.
Jesus was the ultimate Servant Leader. He was devoted to His Heavenly Father, focused on His redemptive mission, and a servant to those He sought to influence. Jesus said, “As the Father has sent me, even so I am sending you.” We are to align ourselves with Jesus’ devotion to the Father, His focus on His mission, and His humble service toward those he sought to lead.
My Leader Life blogs will seek to address the core areas of a Servant Leader’s Life – Spiritual vitality, prayer, marriage, and servant leader skills. I invite you to join me on the journey of growth and development in a Servant Leader’s Life. -TDW
