Jesus Christ Leadership
Who was He?

Jesus Christ is the Son of God, as known by Christianity. He lived in ancient Israel in the first century and is known by many as the Son of God.

Jesus Christ was crucified on the cross for all of mankind’s sins so that man's sins may be forgiven by God; he died, was buried and was resurrected on the third day.

A Quick History

According to History and the Synoptic Gospels Jesus Christ was born around 4 BC in Israel. It would be a turbulent time as Herod would come to know about a new ‘King of the Jews’ and order a slaughter of all the newborns.

Jesus managed to escape to Egypt with his parents from the carnage back in Bethlehem. He eventually returned to his home country Israel at a young age.

His ministry began in Nazareth at 30 years old where he would perform many healings, miracles and even resurrection of the dead. However, he was deemed by the religious leaders of the day to be a blasphemer and they constantly plotted against him.

Eventually they managed to get one of his disciples Judas to betray Jesus by bribing him. Jesus was arrested, crucified and was buried.

However, he miraculously rose again on the third day; and before he ascended into heaven, he tasked his disciples to bring the good news of the gospel to the ends of the world.

Leadership Lessons

Jesus Christ is the most powerful leader of all time; no matter what you believe about him, it is most amazing to see that even after 2,000 years after he lived, the message he tasked his disciples to preach to the world is still happening today.

Great conquerors like Alexander the Great, the Roman Empire, Genghis Khan have rose but have now fallen, but 2,000 years after Jesus Christ came to establish his kingdom, it still exists and thrives today all over the world.

There are countless leadership lessons we can learn from him, but here are a few:

1.Lead by example

Jesus always led by example in everything that he told his disciples to do. Whatever he expected them to do; he always showed them how to do it first. He would perform healings and miracles and eventually we would see the disciples doing the same thing.

The best way you can lead is by example. In today’s world, many leaders expect their subordinates to perform tasks which they themselves are incapable of doing. This destroys their credibility and causes them to lose the respect from their followers.

Before you expect your team to keep a standard, ensure that you’re keeping it yourself first.

2.Have faith

Jesus had great faith and with that faith, he managed to perform all his healings and miracles. On a several occasions, he credits the healings to the recipient’s faith.

This illustrates to us the power of what faith in your life can do. Having a spirit of expectancy sets you up for greater things ahead; and not only that, you lift up the spirits of your team members as well.

No matter what’s going through in your organization, your faith will aid you in overcoming it, as well as have your team put their trust in you as well.

There are many more lessons you can learn from the greatest leader of all time; you have to pick up books yourself and read about him: there’s simply too many books written about him that you probably can’t finish it in your lifetime!
