Leadership introduces a number of new dynamics and challenges. When we consider what’s on the line with the future as it relates to leadership, we begin to understand the urgency.
The fulfillment of God’s plan. Throughout the Old and New Testaments we find God’s provisions for His people. He always placed individuals in positions to lead.
The development of the church. God designed His church to function with leaders. Paul specifically addressed leadership and their function as he wrote the church at Ephesus (Ep. 4:11-13).
The influence needed in the world. People need someone to follow. Christians should provide the example of leading in the family, work place, and neighborhoods where we live.
The demands of the family. The breakdown of the family indicates Satan’s powerful attack to destroy the divine design. The role of husbands and wives and the responsibility of parents require a biblical focus.
These four areas only represent the tip of the iceberg when we consider what’s on the line with leadership. May God bless us with the courage and boldness to fulfill our responsibilities.
