lead like Jesus

Romans 15:2 NLT
We should help others do what is right and build them up in the Lord.

Who are the people in your life who lead like Jesus?  Maybe it is a friend, or your pastor.  Maybe this is your mom or dad.  Name them and then thank them.

Several years ago I attended a seminar led by some great people who spend a couple days teaching us, all kinds of ministry leaders, how to lead like Jesus did.  Many years before that I had some people who poured much into my life to help me do what Jesus did and to lead like Jesus did.

This week I have been part of the National Fellowship of Raceway Ministries (www.racewayministries.com) winter board meeting and annual membership meeting, and tonight we were able to honor our director for 10 years of service.  Roger Marsh has faithfully led this group of people to impact the lives of race fans across the country at large and small race tracks.  His passion is like Jesus' passion.  His plan often reminds me of what Jesus would do.  His words and heart always point people toward building God's kingdom and not our own kingdom.  Roger does lead like Jesus.

We need to do the same.  Find the people who impact your life and lead like Jesus.  Then thank them for following Jesus and teaching you to do the same.

Remember your leaders who taught you the word of God. Think of all the good that has come from their lives, and follow the example of their faith.

I'm grateful for the people who have come in and out of my life who truly lead like Jesus.  Some of these people were pastors while others were simple people living their lives with purpose. 

When we chose to follow Jesus, life will not always be easy, but at that moment we will lead like Jesus.  That is a calling on each of our lives where we like it or not.

I am grateful for the ministry of Roger Marsh.  His efforts continue to pray off.  His courage inspires others.  His 10 years of service to Raceway Ministries is incredible.  Maybe I will tell you more of the story sometime, but I love raceway ministries.

Find those in your life who lead like Jesus and follow their example of faith!
