I have known a lot of great leaders and am thankful for how God has used leaders to sharpen, encourage, and shape me. Because I know I would fail to mention someone(s), I am not going to start listing all the great leaders who have influenced my life. If you read the Bible, though, you know that Moses was an incredible leader used by God to impact millions of lives (and eventually billions of lives).
Moses, though, was really pointing to someone better. He was one of the best leaders in human history because of Whom He followed. In fact, Moses prepared the way for the Ultimate Leader when he said, “The LORD your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own brothers. You must listen to Him” (Deuteronomy 18:15).
You will not often hear successful leaders with an incredibly large following tell you to listen to someone else, and especially someone else who has yet to come. Yet, that is exactly what Moses did. Moses was constantly pointing people to the Word of God, and Moses knew a much better leader was still to come.
On Sunday morning, Lord willing, I will preach on why “Jesus Is the Better Moses” (Hebrews 3). Jesus is better than Moses and better than every other leader in human history because He is not only a man but also the Son of God.
In my message, I hope to communicate our need to submit to Jesus’ authority over our lives and share why He is superior to all leaders for all time. Then, with that being the case, what is our necessary response?
“Watch out, brothers, so that there won’t be in any of you an evil, unbelieving heart that departs from the living God. But encourage each other daily, while it is still called today, so that none of you is hardened by sin’s deception. For we have become companions of the Messiah if we hold firmly until the end the reality that we had at the start” (Hebrews 3:12-14).
For you to be one of His companions, though, you must first come to know Him. If you have not yet surrendered your life to Him (or are unsure), would you click the picture below to learn more?
We are all leaders of someone(s). Let us lead well by leading others to the best Leader.
