The idea of a “calling,” particularly for those not employed in some sort of professional ministry, is often seen as archaic, impractical, or quaint, even by Christians.
This view is damaging, however, both to God’s kingdom and to individual lives and careers. As Christians, we must understand that God has a call on our entire lives, including our careers. To see this any differently denies both allegiance to God as our Creator and an understanding of the unbelievable price Jesus paid for us on the cross. It keeps us from living fully integrated lives in which all things work in synergy for our good and for the building of God’s kingdom.
Whose kind of leader do you really want to be?
Not all leaders are created equal. One, in fact, created all the rest. And this book is your chance to sit down with him for a few minutes each day–the greatest leader of all time–watching what he did and learning how he did it, then getting up to try doing it yourself.
In fewer than four years, Jesus inspired his followers completely and compellingly enough that they were willing to die for him. This obviously wasn’t some la-la land experience. This was real life, leading real men. Yet while instructing them on the duties at hand, he was helping them see greatness in every day. Even while exposing their shortcomings, he was drawing them toward everything they ever wanted to be.
Who wouldn’t want to be that kind of leader?
