NOTE: I was attempting to seperate the first letter of each attribute from the other words so people could see the word Leadership spelled down the side of this writing, but it would not let me.


LEADERSHIP

Leadership must be gauged by the life of Christ alone. Perfection isn’t
alterable. Observe the following points concerning His leadership.

L oyalty, a major factor in leadership, was exemplified in Him who said,
“My meat is to do the will of Him who sent me.” Our heart’s cry must be,
“Thy Will be done!”

E ndurance was projected by Him who endured mockery and humiliation
among many evils, including the cross. We must endure through these
also.

A uthority was His, and men knew that “He spoke as one having authority.”
No one desires to follow a man who fails to exercise authority.

D etermination was evidenced when “He set His face to go to Jerusalem.”
We must establish goals and exercise unrelenting persistence in
accomplishing them.

E xample was perfected in Christ who Himself said, “I do always those
things which please the Father.” No honest man could condemn this
example.

R eliability was personified in the Saviour’s word and in every facet of His
life. None were turned away who came to Him in need. God help us!

S ubmission in the life of Jesus is unparalleled for “He as a sheep before His
shearers was dumb. This is the hardest of lessons for proud man.

H oliness found its truest meaning in “The Lamb without spot or blemish.”
Being constantly under the spotlight demands that we live pure lives.

I nitiative began when “He took upon Himself the form of a man.” He was
willing to take the first step. We must initiate action as we lead.

P rayer was our Lord’s lifestyle. Communion with the Father was His
Supreme delight! Without this most important factor all else is worthless.

All of these must be prefaced with love!

C. R. Lord

Okay now I get it!! What a great use of the letters to voice the role of leadership!

Your acrostic makes relevant points on Christ's leadership in the form of the letters that spell the word "Leadership". I had the same problem sometime before. It doesn't work when you submit your entry. But your effort is very commendable.
