Leaders


As we study the bible, we observe that both Joseph and Yeshua ben Yosef (Jesus) were chosen or “anointed” for a special task. When Jacob gifted his son Joseph with a coat of many colors in Genesis 37, lifting him up above his brothers, he reflected Joseph’s calling by the Lord for a life work as a leader.
The preparation for this role was grueling. Joseph endured the fires of testing, sold into slavery, thrown into prison, and seemingly abandoned by God he must have wondered to himself, “Why is this happening?” It seems clear from hindsight that Joseph was learning the deep humility required for God’s kind of leadership. 

We also see the humility of the Son of God in His Incarnation and crucifixion. (“My God, My God, why have you forsaken me?”) So as Joseph saved the whole world from physical death by starvation, Jesus saved the whole world from spiritual death, the judgment of sin.

If you have seen signs of your own anointing for a specific task, and find yourself in the midst of painful “unexplainable” trials and tribulations, you’re in good company. God gives responsibility to people of character. Both Joseph and Jesus are beautiful examples of the kind of leader God loves–a humble one.
