Christian Leadership Advice

As leaders there are times when we miss taking time with God or rush through the quiet time we do have. It's important not to be distracted by all the things our roles require and the demands of the world around us. If we want to be strong Christian leaders, the best advice is to spend time with the greatest leader of all God our heavenly Father!

Christian Advice for Leaders

To know the love of Christ which passes knowledge; that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. ~ Ephesians 3:19

“What equipment do I need if I am going to serve the Lord, sir?” a young missionary recruit asked a veteran Christian.  The old saint quickly replied, “Bent knees, wet eyes, and a broken heart!”

The bent knees were mentioned first. The hardest thing for a leader to do is to remember to bend them, because there are so many holy and good substitutes!  There is the sweet fellowship with other great leaders.  There is the edification of fellow national believers.  There is the corporate time of prayer that the staff enjoys each day.  There are family devotions around the breakfast table with the children.  But the bent knees that lead to the wet eyes that result from a broken heart come from the isolation of the soul.

space

The most important transactions take place alone; absolutely alone!  That is the time when you are able to comprehend, to really grasp what is the breadth and length and depth and height of the love of Christ.

One day Jesus looked out on a needy multitude and was moved with compassion (see Matt. 14:14).  The word moved could well be translated “convulsed.”  That deep, deep love came from Christ’s time spent alone with His Father – with bent knees, wet eyes, and a broken heart!

space

Ministry leaders, of course, are not the only ones who need to practice bent knees! If a leader is “an ordinary person called to do extraordinary things with very little help,” then that includes all of us!
