Spirit Driven Leader – Spirit Driven Leadership

Spirit Driven Leader

Why Spirit Driven Leader? You know, that is a very good question, one I have been struggling with for some time now.
Oswald Chambers
Spirit Driven Leadership gained clarity today during my daily devotional (The Way to Permanent Faith). I came across a quote from Oswald Chambers’ “My Utmost For His Highest”. I received some real insight into what a Spirit Driven Leader really is. We have to have the heart of God.

Leaders – who is really in charge?

Leaders - who is really in charge?

Leaders, wrestle with these thoughts when you begin to feel important.

Sometimes it is very difficult to not get caught up in oneself when in a leadership role. Unfortunately, when that happens, those folks being led cease to perceive the leader as special. It is an interesting contradiction. As a leader, if you need to increase leadership effectiveness, then serving the organization by caring about the people and listening to their hearts not just their words will open the door for better communication and higher effectiveness. We as leaders (Pastors, Elders, Directors, etc.) are not gods, so we need to give up thinking or acting like we are.

But remember, we do not have the full deity of God to abandon, as did Christ.  But we can have a perceived autonomy, independent spirit , self-confident heart (deity of man) to abandon.
