Are you discouraged at work? Do you sometimes feel like everyone else is a "hero" but you? Do you feel like you are essential? This gospel-centric devotional will remind you that your work matters to God. "Hero" is how elected officials and the media label people are considered essential. At some point in our culture, when everybody gets to be a hero, nobody is a hero.
You may not think of yourself as a hero. Yet you are essential! As much as we would love to believe that our work is heroic, we must manage our expectations and realize that the highest aspiration of our work is to be meaningful in ways that glorify God and for the good of others.
This compelling devotional will show you that as a Christ-follower, your role isn't to be the hero, but to be a guide who points people to Jesus. Your responsibility is to be an ambassador who recognizes Jesus as the hero. Your calling is to fulfill your role as an irreplaceable and essential member of the body of Christ. The path you follow qualifies you to be the one the people need to guide them to the next milestone in their journey.
This book will make you confident as you live and work in the shadow of the one true hero who saved the day for all eternity. God calls people like you to guide people to Jesus, and that makes you essential!
There are no perfect leaders. God uses unprepared, untrained, incomplete, and unqualified people to "see and do greater things" for Him. He guides and gives vision, while equipping those He calls.
In this practical and inspirational book, Dr. Paul Swamidass explores how Biblical leadership skills and giftings are multi-dimensional. He highlights both the leader's strengths and weaknesses and shows how Christ-centered leadership based on Biblical truth creates a thriving leader equipped to strengthen and prepare other believers.
In this book, you will discover:
- How Jesus taught leadership by personal example
- How Jesus explained the qualifications of Biblical leaders
- That Jesus taught leadership qualifications through admonition of failed religious leaders
- How we can learn from exemplary Biblical leaders
- How we can learn from failed leaders in the Bible
Leading a church or ministry can seem a daunting task, but God's Word provides the perfect template for instruction. Dr. Swamidass expertly guides readers to the revelatory leadership principles contained within the Bible. This book is for every Christian who wants to grow as a wise, effective, and flourishing leader.
