As I write this, we are being blessed with rain. Praise God! It has been so hot and dry this summer that the rain comes as a welcome blessing.

Just like the blessing of rain, I pray the Holy Spirit would be poured out on those returning to school rhythms—students, teachers, administrators and others. Many other employees around the institution of education often fly under the radar. I encourage you to take time praying for them too.

As we continue our Lead Like Jesus series, we’ll focus on Jesus’ words to His disciples as recorded in Matthew 20:25-28 and the words of Paul from Romans 12:1-2. Last Sunday, we focused on the Heart of Jesus. This week, we focus on the Head of Jesus—how His thoughts were directed.

For Jesus, leadership is a process that occurs any time you seek to impact the thinking, behavior or development of another person. It is an act of service. People are to be loved, not used.

Jesus saw work as an integral part of God’s plan for the fulfillment of our highest purpose—to glorify God. All work done unto the Lord is sacred. Jesus knew His purpose and values, and He never compromised on them—no matter the cost. Jesus had a divine picture of the future for His followers. His goals focused on empowering others to be the person God  made them to be.

I am excited to explore these Biblical truths about Jesus with you on Sunday as we take on the mantle of leading like Jesus in every aspect of our lives.

See you Sunday,
Pastor John Allen

P.S. I promised to publish Ken Blanchard’s twelve steps to have a heart like Jesus. You can find it here.
