As we grow in our walk with the lord, leadership can pop in our minds. Volunteering at church or being a mentor is the most common routes. But what does it mean to be a leader?
Everyone was given special talents and gifts. Maturing in faith can bring out those qualities. The first thing I would like to make clear is most people don’t become a “great leader” overnight. Experience and wisdom development are both important components of being a guide. Did you know that your testimony and your weaknesses could make you an excellent leader? Someone may have the same difficulty as you. How you deal with your flaws could make you a great role model to those who are hurting.
It is also important to say leadership can happen anywhere with anyone. If you feel you were called outside of the church, that’s ok. Writing about my life to you all is how I use my spiritual gifts. The church is a great place to grow, but there are people in the world that could use your direction as well. Being a Christian means we are at service where ever we are needed and strong enough to handle.
As you take the steps to become an example of Jesus believers – remember that as long as you work with love and grace – you will be a noble leader!
