Reply To: After taking this course, in your own words, please define Hebraic leadership and what it means to you.

Karla Feliz

Hebraic leadership means taking into account both the past and the future of the affairs we’re engaging in. It is impossible to lead without knowing where one is leading others. Hebraic leadership sees Christ’s kingdom on earth as its final destination. As servants of this kingdom, we are responsible for wielding our power responsibly by knowing how to act with wisdom and discernment. Furthermore, this is not just an external sort of leadership; a Hebraic leader must be one who exhibits the qualities that will be observed in this coming kingdom. This includes traits such as humility and charity toward others.

To me, Hebraic leadership means pointing others to Christ’s coming kingdom. Because we are ambassadors for this kingdom, we should be motivating others to say “Maranatha” with us. You can’t motivate others simply with words, this requires that you live a life that characterizes this kingdom’s values. If the coming kingdom is bringing peace, do everything possible to be at peace with others; and if the coming kingdom is to be ruled by Christ, let him shine, and humble yourself before Christ and others. The coming kingdom is completely different from anything we as humans have ever experienced; our behavior as Hebraic leaders should be a testament to that.
