How do you act now that you have all the power?
What do you do when you finally reach that rung of the corporate ladder you’ve working hard for?
How should you run the business you now have inherited?
How do you be successful in the marketplace while holding on to a Christian Worldview?
How can you most effectively gain influence with those who work for and are under your leadership?
3 Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; 4 so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist.
Knowing that He had full authority – the final “say-so.”. “The Buck Stops Here” sign on his desk. All eyes and all power.
Having all this, what does Jesus do and what example does he give us on how to be successful when given authority?
He serves those who answer to him. Simple. He doesn’t ask them to first prove themselves and make themselves perform at a certain level before they get certain privileges.
But he sets the example to serve each other.
Boss/business Owner, want to change the dynamic of your company?
Dad, want to have a different environment when you get home?
Mom, want to improve your homes atmosphere?
Employee, stuck in a mindless routine, want to gain some influence with your peers and co-workers?
Student, want to learn the fast track to becoming a person of authority?
Serve one another.
Do something that’s not in the benefit packet, job description, syllabus, or routine.
Go above and beyond and serve someone.
