Congratulations! You now bear the burden of leading the greatest nation in the world. No pressure. Fortunately, there have been many leaders before you who have set examples of how to lead well and well, how not to lead.

Many Christians have been praying for you. I would also like for you to know, I firmly believe God’s Word to be true when He says that he has established the leader to the role. Therefore, I will honor you and respect you within the bounds of God’s law.

The greatest leader I would ask you to look to when trying to establish your own leadership style in the White House would be that of Jesus, the ultimate servant leader. He is our only hope for life, eternal life and a life of peace while we reside in the world. His first and greatest command is to “love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your mind, and with all your soul. The second is like it, love your neighbor as yourself.”  (Matthew 22:37-40)

Although you do now carry a large burden, you do not bear it alone. You can always cast it onto the one who established you to the role as Commander and Chief. Congratulations, Sir.
