Today I will share an introduction on a study of the Agape` person in Leadership. The Agape person is a leader in the particular area God has placed him. As such, he consistently encourages to Christian commitment and Spirit controlled action, and works to mobilize them in an ongoing movement to help fulfill the Great Commission.
God will show each of us what areas of ministry and what leadership roles He desires for us to have a role in. As we seek to hear His voice and listen to the prompts and act on them we won’t go wrong.
All through scripture we have examples of how Jesus our perfect role model touched lives, how he instructed His Disciples and how He desires for us to follow His example and be the Agape Person in Leadership who fulfills the “Great Commission”.
To fulfill the great commission we need to prepare ourselves. Be ready and willing to receive the “calling” God gives us so we can come along side others and be “fishers of men” and fulfill the “Great Commission that Jesus laid out in Scripture, Matthew 28: 19-20.
Wherever you find your area of ministry you can make a difference in those who come along your path. For example, if your leadership role is in teaching, you can share your own personal experiences with others by pointing the person to scripture teaching them what God’s Word says. The night before Jesus was crucified He said the following to His Father in prayer. John 17:4 “I have brought you glory on earth, by completing the work you gave me to do”. Jesus while on earth prepared his Disciple’s, taught them by example, He taught them to love each other, and He gave them the Word so they could grow to maturity. We too as Agape Christians in Leadership can teach, prepare the way and point others to God’s Word so they too will grow to maturity just as Jesus taught His Disciples, again, thus fulfilling the “Great Commission”.
To re-cap our study we have discovered that an Agape Person is a leader in the particular area God has placed him. As such, he consistently encourages to Christian commitment and Spirit controlled action, and works to mobilize them in an ongoing movement to help fulfill the Great Commission.
1. Mark 16:15-Go Everywhere in the world.
2. Psalm 67:2-Send us around the world with news of your saving power.
3. 1 Peter 5:2-3-Shepherd the Flock. According to a quote taken from The Purpose Driven Life we can sum up the devotional with the example Jesus left us in John 17:4. “Jesus modeled a purpose-driven life, and He taught others how to live it, too.
Today God calls each of us to do the same work. God wants us to introduce people to Christ, bring them into His fellowship, help them grow to maturity and discover their place of service, and then send them out to reach others”, thus fulfilling the Great Commission as an Agape person in Leadership
