"Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do
the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater
things than these, because I am going to the Father" - John 14:12.
Leaders of faith have as much right to claim and pursue the promises of God as anyone else, regardless of what field of endeavor they work, for the "the earth is the Lord’s, and everything in it" (Psalm 24:1). Therefore they should look not simply to maintain what they do, but expand, broadcast, publish, multiply, innovate, create or change it for God's purpose and glory as He reveals it to, in and through them. Today's verse promises that those who know the Lord, even in business, education, industry, ministry or social work, will actually do greater things than Jesus did because it is God's will that they do so to validate and extend the message and impact of God's kingdom.
LEADERSHIP STEP: Your Step today is to reflect on the greater things that Jesus would want you to do in your current position in your leadership role. Once you stop fighting or talking yourself out of those things, it will be time to face your fears and misgivings, and allow that truth to set you free to lead, grow and develop your department, team, company or ministry. Then set goals for next year and beyond to help lead your people to do greater things.
