Divine Empowerment of Leaders

Study of Luke:
Divine Empowerment of Leaders

By Allen Quist 

Based on the truths Luke presented from his writings, The Divine Empowerment of Leaders will examine Christian leadership drawing from an intertexture analysis of Luke’s writings. From the examination, this paper will define, formulate, and communicate leadership theory and praxis. The material will provide historical and social background to help put the time of Pentecost in perspective and will provide biblical examples of divine empowerment. This paper will also include a contemporary examination of leadership in light of divine empowerment. From this study, the message seems to be clear—divine-empowerment of a leader flows out of a leaders’ abandonment to the sovereignty and leadership of Christ, allowing the Spirit’s power to flow through the leader as God’s servant.
