A TRUE CHRISTIAN ENDS UP AS A LEADER
1 TIMOTHY 4:12, MATTHEW 20:26
In every situation, it is the man who knows what to do that will end up leading everyone else. It is possible to be an assistant at your place of work and be the one who is leading, such that even your boss at work comes to gain from your spiritual insight and wisdom.
No matter what your position in the church or at your place of work is, God has called you to a degree of leadership capacity somewhere and sometime.
In addition, God has great plans for your future, plans that include you leading many people, but you will never be able to sustain that place of leadership if you don’t prepare for it.
You must remember that there is a difference between those who lead and those who are in leadership.Those who are in leadership have the title but may not necessarily be the ones leading everyone, but those who lead are those who have taken their development process seriously.
Thus, they now have the capacity, spiritual wisdom, spiritual depth, and sensitivity to lead others. So, how do you prepare yourself for kingdom leadership? The answer is simple and straightforward – take your church membership seriously.
Don’t shy away from any assignment given to you by your pastor, instead, embrace it wholeheartedly. This is how true and lasting leaders are made.
