Who Is In Your Driver's Seat?

"Anyone who intends to come with me has to let me lead. You're not in the driver's seat; I am."
Matthew 16:24 MSG

Have you ever known a leader who everyone wanted to be like? He or she was a visionary, a wonder-woman, super man, incredible wife or husband, mother or father. Others would navigate to them and others followed what they did.

There will always be talented and gifted people who we will admire. We can certainly gain much from their expertise but ultimately Jesus Christ is the best role model you and I could ever have. His life is by far the greatest example of love, leadership, hard work, perseverance, humility, compassion and encouragement we could ever know. His life is the one you and I should desire to emulate.

Set your eyes on Him today and follow the leader, permitting His ways to become your ways. With Jesus in the driver's seat of your life, He becomes the ultimate role model. Following Him will allow you to become more and more like Him.
