Leadership Lessons from Luke 3.4-6

Posted on

Your vision carries history and destiny with it.

Luke 3.4 – “As it is written in the book of the words of Isaiah the prophet…” A God vision has been breathing for a long time. God patiently waits for the individual to walk out the vision. This was the destiny of John the Baptist. He was simply putting feet to the vision written hundreds of years prior to John.

As Kingdom leaders we are to prepare the way of the Lord with each vision. This requires us to know the history of Scripture and the destiny it brings. As mentioned before our leadership is to help others in their pursuit of Christ.

Note John’s call. “Prepare the way of the Lord.”

“Make his paths straights.”

“Every valley shall be filled, and every mountain and hill shall be made low.”

In other words we are to level the playing field for all. The purpose behind this? To grant access for all to come to know Jesus. If our vision does anything less than this it is a selfish one at best.

We can’t afford to have more of a vision for erecting a building than we do in building people into giant Christ followers. Every aspect of our leadership should be meticulously designed to make rough places, level ways (verse 5).

How is your vision as a leader helping others in life?
