Leadership Word Of The Week…Tenacity

Tenacity identifies someone who is determined. A tenacious person possesses a certain ability to hold on to something tightly with an incredible determination.

Look around. It does not take much to see how people demonstrate tenacity in all areas of life, from recreation to religion. When we examine our priorities we generally find our tenacity.

Biblically, when considering the definition of tenacity, we tend think of the apostle Paul. Remember his words to the church at Corinth, “I determined to know nothing among you except Jesus Christ, and Him crucified.”

What an incredible statement. Paul demonstrated tenacity in all areas of his leadership among the Lord’s people. Through his writings we continually see this driving force. Perhaps a few thoughts will help us understand how to be tenacious.

Be passionate and remove the impossibility factor…

Know what is worth dying for…

Have a clear vision of God…

Challenge self and others to do something great!

These few ideas can create a whole new approach to our leadership and move others to greater heights of fulfillment in the Lord’s kingdom.
