The Difference Maker Biblical Examples Our attitude makes the difference in our life more than just about anything else. All things being equal, the person with a positive, healthy attitude will prevail over the person who may have skill but a lousy attitude. Attitude cannot replace talent, but it’s the difference between two talented people. Below is a biblical treatment of “The Difference Maker.”
1. Where Did You Get Your Attitude? Our attitude is an inward feeling expressed in our outward behavior. It comes from our personality, our environment, the impact of others, our self image, our exposure to growth opportunities, our association with others, our beliefs, and our choices.

The Law of Empowerment:
Jesus Had a Great IDEA to Equip Others John 14:12 Jesus told His men that they would do greater works than He had done. How would this be possible? First, He would send the Holy Spirit to live in each of them. Second, He had already given so much of Himself to equip them.

The Law of Empowerment tells us that only secure leaders give their power to others. God prepared the disciples to reproduce their leadership in the lives of others. They were empowered by the Holy Spirit and equipped by the Lord Jesus. Talk about being ready to change the world! How did Jesus mentor and reproduce His leadership in His disciples?

Consider Jesus’ IDEA of how to reproduce leadership in someone else:

I nstruction He verbally taught them. He constantly used daily routines to instruct them in leadership.
D emonstration He modeled truth and let His men
observe His life. He provided show-and-tell.
E xperience He let the disciples participate and apply the truths themselves. They got to practice.
A ssessment He debriefed their shared experience. He assessed their growth and gave them direction.

The Law of the Inner Circle: Leading When No One Sees John 17:11–26
The majority of what we call Jesus’ “high priestly prayer” concerns His inner circle. At the end of His life, He felt acutely aware that the success of His work depended chiefly on the twelve disciples He had trained. Observe what He prayed for:
1. Their faith (vv. 11, 12)
2. Their fulfillment (v. 13)
3. Their future (vv. 14, 15)
4. Their faithfulness (vv. 16, 17)
5. Their fruitfulness (vv. 18–20)
6. Their fellowship (vv. 21–23)
7. Their sense of family (vv. 24–26)

When Jesus knew He had but twelve hours left to live, He didn’t start big campaigns. He didn’t try to change laws. He didn’t even do any more public ministry. He spent the time praying . Prayer is a chief task of the leader (Acts 6:4). The leadership we provide which no one sees may be more important than what we do in public. Followers think of leadership in terms of the visible. In reality, leadership is like an iceberg; most of it lies unseen. A leader’s prayer tells you a lot about the leader. It reveals his or her commitment and concerns. Prayer keeps the leader focused. It keeps a leader dependent on God. It sustains the leader’s heart for people. If we are to lead people, we must pray for them.
