Jesus, the Good Shepherd

Jesus is called the Good Shepherd in John 10.
He provides us with the ultimate example for each and every leadership situation we might find ourselves in.

When he has brought his own sheep outside, he walks on before them, and the sheep follow him because they know his voice. (John 10:4 AMP)

We should be following Jesus’ example in all we do.
As a Husband or Wife, Dad or Mom, Church Leader, Sunday School Teacher, the list goes on…

We need to lead from the front, just as Jesus does with us. (Heb 6:20)
He goes before us, blazing the trail.

We need to be vibrant examples to those who are following us. We can’t instruct people to do one thing, while disregarding our own instruction. It just doesn’t work like that.

There is a reason why Jesus didn’t say He was the great cowboy who drives the cows from one place to another.

It’s because a great leader doesn’t say “Go”, a great leader says “Let’s Go!”
