Positional Leadership

I was grabbed this evening by a new perspective on positional leadership. It has to do with our position in Christ, rather than our position with man. The thought is simply this:

“What if I were able to be an effective leader and a man of influence, not because I am doing the right things, but simply because I am where God has called me?”

“What if the fact that I am seated with Christ in heavenly places meant more than my title or earthly position?”

It’s a different kind of positional leadership. It’s not because of who I’m over, but because of who has put me there. It’s not because of what I do, but because of what He does through me. It’s not that I am over others for my own agenda, but that I am coming under  others to raise them up and to serve them.

Jesus. It’s all about less of me and more of Him.
