    Proverbs. 11:14a Living Bible Without wise leadership, a nation is in trouble.
    7 LEADERSHIP PRINCIPLES THAT JESUS MODELED
    1. IDENTIFICATION: KNOW WHO YOU ARE
    I am …the Light of the world… the Son of God…the Way, the Truth and the Life…the
    Bread of Life (John 8:12, Mark 14:62, John 14:6, John 6:35)
    I testify on my own behalf. John 8:18 (RSV)
    2. CLARIFICATION: KNOW WHAT I WANT TO ACCOMPLISH
    I know where I came from and where I am going. Jn. 8:14
    I must proclaim the good news… for I was sent for this purpose. Luke 4:43 (RSV)
    3. MOTIVATION: KNOW WHO I AM TRYING TO PLEASE
    I only try to please the One who sent me. John 5:30 (NCV)
    No one can serve two masters… Luke 16:13
    I have brought you glory on earth by completing the work you gave me to do.
    John 17:4 (NIV)
    4. COLLABORATION: WORK WITH A SMALL GROUP
    He appointed twelve designating them apostles that they might be with Him and that He
    might send them out to preach. Mark 3:14 (NIV)
    Then He said to them, my soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death. Stay
    here and keep watch with Me. Matt. 26:38 (NIV)
    5. CONCENTRATION: FOCUS ON WHATS IMPORTANT
    As the time drew near for His return to heaven, He moved steadily onward toward
    Jerusalem with an iron will. Luke. 9:51 (LB)
    Anyone who lets himself be distracted from the work I plan for him is not fit for the
    The Kingdom of God. Luke 9:62 (LB)
    • Martha was distracted… So Jesus said, you are worried and bothered about so many
    things; but only a few things are necessary, really only one… Luke 10:40-42 (NAS)
    6. MEDITATION: LISTEN TO GOD CONTINUALLY
    • Very early in the morning, while it was still dark, Jesus got up, left the house and went
    off to a solitary place, where He prayed. Mark 1:35 (NIV)
    • News about Jesus spread even more. Crowds came to hear Him and to be healed…but
    Jesus often slipped away to be alone so He could pray. Luke 5:15-16 (NCV)
    • Plant your roots in Christ and let Him be the foundation for your life. Be strong in your
    faith, just as you were taught. Col. 2:7 (CEV)
    7. RELAXATION: TAKE TIME TO RECHARGE
    • Crowds of people were coming and going so that they did not even have time to eat.
    He said to them, Come away by yourselves, and we’ll go to a lonely place to get some
    rest. Mark 6:31 (NCV)
