LIBERTY UNIVERSITY SCHOOL OF DIVINITYJournal Reflections: Vocational LeadershipSubmitted to Dr. Benjamin Forrest,in partial fulfillment of the requirements for the completion ofLEAD 520 – D01The Life of LeadersbyMelissa MartinezDecember 18, 2020
Leadership and TemptationWhen I truly began to take my relationship with Christ seriously, I had read Matthew25:21 during my daily reading. In that particular moment the words shared had made a deepimpact on my life. From there I have made it a point that inallI do, I want the Lord to tell me,“Well done, good and faithful servant…enter into the joy of your master.”1I do not care muchfor needing to be placed over much, or having more added to me. I simply desire knowing that Ihave made the Lord proud of my actions. With that particular mindset, I have overcome a greatdeal of temptation and poor behavior not only in ministry but in my personal life as well, becauseI truly did not want to disappoint Jesus. When the times have come that I have fallen, it takes mea couple of days to come to Him and confess because of my great shame. It could be said thatMatthew 25:21 helped me to create my personal manifesto.Billy Graham had four specific items on his manifesto and they were all specificallyrelated to his ministry. Money, sexual immorality, work with the church, and publicity all had aset of biblical rules that would keep Mr. Graham and his team committed to integrity.2It wouldbe a good idea that within my personal goals that I pinpoint a few specific items in addition toall I do.Although I have incorporated all things, there could come a day when I am asked to bemore specific. With that in mind, I will add the following to my manifesto:1.I will not be persuaded to compromise because I serve God and not man.
