Six Commitments for Leadership

“If God has given you leadership ability, take the

responsibility seriously.” ~Rom 12:8

1. Commit To Maintain Integrity

“So then, dear friends, since you are looking forward to this, make every effort to be found spotless, blameless and at peace with him.” ~2 Peter 3:14 (NIV)

2. Commit to forgive those who hurt you

14 “Make every effort to live in peace with all men and to be holy; without holiness no one will see the Lord. 15 See to it that no one misses the grace of God and that no bitter root grows up to cause trouble and defile many.” ~Heb 12:14-15 (NIV)

13 “Bear with each other and forgive whatever grievances you may have against one another. Forgive as the Lord forgave you. 14 And over all these virtues put on love, which binds them all together in perfect unity.” ~Col 3:13-14 (NIV)

3. Commit to relax and trust God.

10 “for anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. 11 Let us, therefore, make every effort to enter that rest, so that no one will fall by following their example of disobedience.” ~Heb 4:10-11 (NIV)

4. Commit to be an encourager

“Let us therefore make every effort to do what leads to peace and to mutual edification.” ~Rom 14:19 (NIV)

5. Commit to be a peace maker

Make every effort to keep the unity of the Spirit through the bond of peace. ~Eph 4:3 (NIV)

6. Commit to continuous growth

5 For this very reason, make every effort to add to your faith goodness; and to goodness, knowledge; 6 and to knowledge, self-control; and to self-control, perseverance; and to perseverance, godliness; 7 and to godliness, brotherly kindness; and to brotherly kindness, love. 8 For if you possess these qualities in increasing measure, they will keep you from being ineffective and unproductive in your knowledge of our Lord Jesus Christ. ~2 Peter 1:5-8 (NIV)
