Leadership Word Of The Week…Sanctuary

While the most common concept of a sanctuary is related to a holy place or church building, the idea behind this week’s word is a place of refuge or safety.

Leaders should approach the concept of sanctuary from at least two perspectives: 1) the need for sanctuary themselves, and 2) providing the type of leadership where others find sanctuary.

Regardless of how long someone has been involved in leadership, there will always be times when leaders need to retreat to a place of refuge, a place of solitude where they find peace.

Also, leaders need a style of leadership that allows others who follow the opportunity to find that place of safety, a place where they can trust in their leadership to provide security.

The beauty of this word is that it applies to what God has done for us through Jesus. The writer of the book of Hebrews mentions this truth in several ways, as Jesus is superior, better, and sovereign because of who He is, what He did, and where He is now.

Let us focus on these truths as the foundation for our own leadership.
