The Power of Passion…

What is it that drives our lives, especially as leaders?

Steve Jobs once said, “It [what you choose to do] has got to be something that you’re passionate about because otherwise you won’t have the perseverance to see it through.”

While we associate passion with excitement or enthusiasm, there is much more involved.

Passion is from a Latin word associated with suffering or sacrifice.

When leaders are passionate, it is seen by what they are willing to suffer, sacrifice, or give up in order to achieve the goal. 

When passion is present, leaders persevere to see it through.

A Devoted Leader…

The Greek word translated “devoted” carries the idea of “insisting on staying close to someone or something.”

What does that mean for spiritual leaders? It means they will…

…insist on staying close to people. A leader’s devotion to people means they learn their needs and assist them, especially to heaven.

…insist on staying close to the plan. The plan is the map. Leaders must not deviate from the plan, or the goal is unreachable.

…insist on staying close to the Lord. Leaders know the true source of their strength is not in themselves, but the Lord.

A leader’s devotion provides a foundation to great achievement.
