I’ve always said that a man must first conquer his own soul before he can conquer the world. When you look in the mirror do you see faith or falsehood, a winner or a whiner?

We all would like to be better people. We all lead or follow. With so many conflicting instructions in the world Christians should all be leaders at your post. Today let’s look at the mirror of God’s Word in a sermon called the Profile of a Leader.  

We all can be better. Today we examine our leadership.

  1. A Leader is under authority

Matthew 8 8-10    But the centurion said, “Lord, I am not worthy for You to come under my roof, but just say the word, and my servant will be healed. 9“For I also am a man under authority, with soldiers under me; and I say to this one, ‘Go!’ and he goes, and to another, ‘Come!’ and he comes, and to my slave, ‘Do this!’ and he does it.” 10Now when Jesus heard this, He marveled and said to those who were following, “Truly I say to you, I have not found such great faith with anyone in Israel.…

Philip. 4:13 I can do all things through Christ which strengtheneth me.

Matthew 28:20  Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen.

  1. A Leader knows his enemy and knows his God.  

1Samuel 17:4-7  A champion named Goliath, who was from Gath, came out of the Philistine camp. He was over nine feet tall.                                          

3.  A Leader has heart

1Samuel 17:32 David said to Saul, “Let no one lose heart on account of this Philistine; your servant will go and fight him.”

1Samuel 17:50 So David triumphed over the Philistine with a sling and a stone; without a sword in his hand he struck down the Philistine and killed him.

  1. A Leader must have resolve.

James 1:8  A double minded man is unstable in all his ways.

1 Cor. 2:16 For who hath known the mind of the Lord, that he may instruct him? But we have the mind of Christ.

  1.  A Leader is  selfless. Philip. 2:4 Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others.
  2. A Leader leads by example.     Demand -V- Command

1 Tim. 1:16 Howbeit for this cause I obtained mercy, that in me first Jesus Christ might shew forth all longsuffering, for a pattern to them which should hereafter believe on him to life everlasting.

  1. A Leader is progressive Philip. 3:13 Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before,
  2. A Leader values Team .

1 Cor. 12:12 For as the body is one, and hath many members, and all the members of that one body, being many, are one body: so also is Christ.

  1. Leader see beyond the Battle 2 Tim. 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
  2. A Leader values reward.

Matthew 25:23 His lord said unto him, Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.
