A study in the life of Jesus reveals numerous marks of greatness as they relate to His leadership. As we considered yesterday, Jesus demonstrated compassion regarding the needs of others.
Another area of greatness that characterized the leadership of Jesus was His ability to address matters of greater importance.
The disciples constantly questioned Jesus about matters of the kingdom, especially from the physical realm.
In His response Jesus answered their immediate inquisition, but He directed their attention to deeper matters of a spiritual nature.
One example involved the concern of the disciples over the destruction of the temple, the sign of His coming, and the end of the age.
While Jesus addressed their concerns with information related to the signs prior to this event, He took them further into the events surrounding the event surrounding the judgment day.
He wanted them to know that something greater than the destruction of the temple was coming and the reason for teaching them this truth was to prepare themselves and prepare others for that day.
Our leadership is the same, preparing others for that day.
