Great Bible Leaders…Paul – Part 2

The apostle Paul presents so many great qualities of leadership it is hard to know what stands out most. I am sure each person has their favorite qualities relating most to their leadership.

Let me share a few more this week.

Humble: We find Paul making several statements throughout his letters indicating the level of humility in his heart. He considered himself the least of the apostles, not fit to be called an apostle, and the chief of sinners. He certainly understood and exemplified humility.

Dedicated: Paul’s level of dedication would be hard to measure. However, we see his dedication to the Lord, the church, and the lost. He was determined to know nothing except Jesus Christ and Him crucified (1 Co. 2:2-5). He was dedicated to do whatever necessary to preach this message.

Compassionate: Paul’s love for his own people who were lost and his intense concern over the church when led into sin, is an example of true leadership. He wanted nothing more than for people to be saved.

There is more to come, but what a great example to follow in our leadership.
