RECOGNISED AND REGARDED LEADERS – Pastor Abel Oyewale, Nigeria

RECOGNISED AND REGARDED LEADERS (JOHN 3:1-21 )
Pastor Abel Oyewale
Nigeria 
Jesus answered and said to him , “Are you the teacher of Israel , and do not know these things ” (v10)
Even though Nicodemus came to Jesus at night (a sign of hunger for Jesus and fear of Jews) Jesus still acknowledged his leadership status. He does not need to taunt anyone before He gets him hooked. Jesus humbly responded to Nicodemus questions despite Nicodemus shrinking and quaking before Him. Jesus understood his spiritual deficiency and thirst. He was ready to help him out.

Heaven is every man’s ultimate, and Jesus came for that purpose. So, Jesus desire is that all men accept Him, so that the can enjoy His provision. This made Him relates with them in love. In other to impress the truth upon their hearts, while still honoring them for their status, Jesus visited and dined with some of them. Jesus lived an open and loving life. He loved all sincerely and equally. 
READY TO FULFILL RIGHTEOUSNESS (MATT.3:1-17)
Then Jesus came from Galileo to John at the Jordan to be baptized by him. Obedience is a trait of loyalty. Jesus agreed with His father to come down and live with man, so that mankind can enjoy the fullness of God’s grace through Him. (John 1:16)

He first practiced what He was to preach by humbly going down to Jordan to be baptized by John the Baptist. What a humble way to fulfill all righteousness. Today’s leaders have a lesson to learn from Jesus humility  In order for them to justify the confidence  that the people repose in themf they must experience divine elevation. Jesus came for an assignment whose success is hinged on fulfilling all righteousness.
Every leader must meet God’s expectation before they can succeed.
May God help us all.
Shalom,
Pastor Abel
