“Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.” 

– Hebrews 13:7

Did you know that you are leader? Regardless of whether or not leadership is implied in your title, if you are a Christian, you are called to lead! No matter where you are today and how insignificant you think your role is, because you are empowered by the Holy Spirit, you have influence!

As we continue talking about our workplaces and how we handle relationships in the professional environment, my challenge to you is to not worry as much about the perfections or imperfections of your employer and instead focus on transforming your organization’s culture one relationship at a time. Rather than trying to find a perfect boss or a workplace that’s known for being joyful and productive, work to cultivate the atmosphere you seek in your own sphere of influence. Don’t worry about your title or your perceived authority, simply get to know people, encourage them, and speak life over them, and then watch as things begin to change. Never underestimate your ability to lead — serve others with humility of heart and I assure you, you will make a difference!

Friend, you have been given a great gift — the opportunity to be Jesus to those around you. When you put on a countenance of joy, infuse a sense of peace, and exercise patience with your co-workers, you are modeling the very presence of the One who can change their lives. I encourage you to be as full of Christ’s Spirit when you go to work on Monday as you are in church on Sunday. As you do, you are planting seeds of eternity that may well take root and spring up in their hearts. In a world that is increasingly hostile, doggy, and competitive, you are a leader with the power to model the living Lord to a culture that is dying by self-absorption! Isn’t that an honor?


Thank you, Jesus, for calling me to be a leader. I want to represent you in a powerful, tangible way to those around me.


Do you consider yourself a leader? Do you believe you are called to lead in the Kingdom of God? Why or why not?
