What sparks a leader’s passion to step up and take on a cause

What sparks a leader’s passion to step up and take on a cause? What empowers a person’s leadership? What drives them to start this journey? What ignites the vision to birth so the leader can start planning to orchestrate a team to bring it to pass? Leaders have a heart for change; they constantly wish to see things continually progressing forward. They understand Proverbs 29:18 that says “Where there is no vision, the people perish”. So what sparks this vision to take on a cause?

The answer may come a little odd to you, burdens. Burdens have a way of creating a passion within you to take it on. Burdens are different from trials because burdens don’t affect you. You can walk away from a burden and still go on as if nothing happened. However, most godly leaders caught their vision when taking on a burden. Leaders don’t have to go searching for burdens to take on because most times the burden will be readily available for your calling. Through obedience your calling will come from seizing opportunities as they present themselves. Burdens do three things in the life of a leader:

1. Burdens Purifies Motives
You can’t take on a burden and be self-seeking at the same time. When you take on a burden it will generally draw you away from your place of comfort and into an area that more than likely will not be comfortable to you. However, you’ll soon find out that your main purpose in taking on this burden is to benefit others and not yourself.

2. Burden Cultivates Persistence
Taking on a burden will take hard work and dedication. There will be times when you’re physically, mentally and spiritually drained. It’s at this point that the good leaders are separated from the great leaders. It’s an ultimate sacrifice to put your life on hold to take on a more major issue. You’ll walk away with cuts, bruises and tears but in the end you’ll walk away with the victory if you just become persistent.

3. A Burden Cements Conviction
Leaders are convicted by burdens. They understand that burdens lead to vision. Once the vision is created, the passion to bring it to pass is sparked. This is why burdens are so powerful because it forces the leader to develop their creative side to see the vision come to past. What has convicted you lately? What issues do you see in your local community that needs attending to? Don’t always look around for help because you may be the help people are looking for.
