How attractive are you?

For I know where I came from and where I am going . . . I am not alone. The Father who sent me is with me. John 8:14, 16

There is nothing more attractive than a confident leader.

“I know who I am, I know where I’m going, and I know how to get there,” are statements that exude certainty and vision. But the most critical issue for confident leaders is whether or not they have the right to be confident.

Do they have credibility?

Credibility is related not to the amount of confidence one exudes but to one’s past resume of achievements. Credibility answers the question, “What is the caliber of the people who have already placed their trust in you?”

Confidence and credibility are useful tools to have in carrying out leadership functions. They certainly affect our effectiveness in guiding people. But they must be driven by a passion for others to experience spiritual freedom in Jesus Christ.

Jesus calls us to be completely available for his service in this grand purpose.
