10 Qualities of a Warrior
by Matt Fry, Lead Pastor of C3 Church in Clayton, NC
Jesus is the ultimate leader. During His life on earth, He turned three years of ministry into a worldwide movement that changed history. Today, more people follow Him than any other leader in the world. As a model leader, Jesus practiced the most vital principles of leadership-and He provides an example for us to imitate.
1. WARRIORS ARE SERVANT LEADERS
Leadership is Servant hood. (Mark 8:35, Matthew 20:25) ”He who is greatest among you shall be your servant.” (Matthew 23:11)
At the last supper, Jesus modeled servant hood by washing His disciples’ feet-including Judas Iscariot, the one who would betray Him! He showed us that servant hood begins with a secure leader (John 13:3). Jesus knew His position and was willing not to flaunt it. He knew His calling, and was willing to be faithful to it. He knew His future and was willing to submit to it. He had nothing to prove, nothing to lose and nothing to hide. He was into towels, not titles.
