If Jesus Christ were running for president, would the American people elect Him to the highest office in the land? What kind of leader would He be? What platform and constitution would He adopt?
Jesus Christ's leadership skills are world-renowned, and He remains one of the most respected leaders of all time. He is the ultimate model of right leadership.
He is uncompromising but compassionate, diligent but patient, knowledgeable but understanding, fervent but sympathetic, persevering but persuadable, determined but easily entreated, persuasive but not dictatorial, hospitable but not invasive, and self-controlled but not self-righteous.
He is the perfect leader with perfect integrity, compassion and love for all mankind (John 3:16
). He clothes Himself with perfect ethics, virtue, truthfulness and moral righteousness. He treats others the way any of us would want to be treated, with equal fairness, compassion and concern for all (Luke 6:31
). He cares for the plight of the widows, elderly and disadvantaged (James 1:27
His willingness to sacrifice Himself for the betterment of those under His rule was dramatically established when He voluntarily followed through with His and His Father's plan to offer up His own life for the sins of all mankind (Hebrews 7:26-28 ; Revelation 13:8; Hebrews 12:2).
He resolutely confirmed His unwavering loyalty to God, His government and His master plan while being cross examined by the Roman governor Pontius Pilate just before He was sentenced to a brutal scourging and painful death. "My kingdom is not of this world," He told Pilate. "If My kingdom were of this world, My servants would fight . . . but now My kingdom is not from here" (John 18:36).
With these kinds of leadership skills and a platform based on biblical principles, He would boldly move society in a new, more righteous and godly direction
