Leadership By Conviction, Not Polls

This week I’ve been talking about consistency in leadership. Jesus was the same person twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week. He lived with his disciples for three years. There was no room for inconsistency in his leadership life. This is a powerful leadership trait. We see it today as we experience political campaigns. People look not only for consistency of message, but consistency of character.

People crave leadership that they know will serve them the same way behind closed doors as in front of TV cameras. People crave leadership that takes positions of conviction in spite of poll numbers and focus groups. We all want a leader whose character has been tested and refined by trials, a leader who does not waiver when confronted with evil. Jesus didn’t waiver. A Jesus-centered leader should not either.
