Leadership Lessons Daily: Day 130

Scripture Passage: Judges 3:9-11
Leaders are Deliverers
Israel served Baalim following Joshua’s death and God sold them into the hands of their enemies. However, when they cried to Him, a new leader emerged. The Bible says, “The Lord raised up a deliverer to the children of Israel, who delivered them, even Othniel….the Spirit of the Lord came upon him, and he judged Israel, and went out to war….and he prevailed ….and the land had rest forty years.”
The lesson here is this; leaders are deliverers. They are rescue agents sent to rescue those they lead from captivity and all forms of evil. Every genuine leader has a vision to better the lives of those he leads. And anyone who will rise up to deliver a people will surely emerge their leader. He may not have a leadership position and title to match but no one will be able to deny his influence and according to John C. Maxwell, “leadership is influence. Nothing more, nothing less.”
Prayer: Father, make me a deliverer to the world around me.
