Leadership, the way I see it….
Leadership is about HELPING OTHERS, by helping others, you are also HELPING YOURSELF. As you help others you are developing & releasing, the gifts of the Holy Spirit in & through you, Galatians 5:16-26, you are also developing & releasing 1 Cor 13 at the same time. YOU BENEFIT FROM THESE THINGS increasing in you, and of course SO DO OTHERS. The fruits of the Spirit are ATTITUDES EXPRESSED IN ACTIONS. Church is not all about “the church”, it’s about Jesus and people. People are drawn to the goodness of God, which should be seen through us, His church. The church is not an organisation, it’s a living, breathing, expression of God to others, it’s Christ in us the Hope of Glory…WE ARE THE CHURCH. Col 1:27.
You can lead from where ever you are, you don’t need to be at the top or in some amazing position. If you are involved in Life, YOU CAN , and YOU SHOULD LEAD. According to the following definition of leadership.
The true measure of leadership is EXAMPLE & INFLUENCE, nothing else. Where the example is bad, the influence is also bad. Where there is no or little influence, there is no or little leadership. Example and Influence go hand in hand with Galatians 5 :16-26, 1 Cor 13.
PLEASE NOTE, EXAMPLE ALWAYS COMES BEFORE INFLUENCE. A good example is automatically a good influence…
