“Remember your leaders, who spoke the word of God to you. Consider the outcome of their way of life and imitate their faith.”
There is a cliché that says everything rises and falls on leadership. Everyone is a leader; at least you are a leader of yourself. That’s why you must develop leadership qualities.
I want us to examine some marks of leadership. In summary, the verse says; Christians are to identify and emulate their leaders. Let’s examine some signs;
- Leaders live by the word.
They “Spoke the word of God.” The word is spoken by our actions and by our words. To be a good leader you must practice the principles of God’s word.
- Leaders are role models.
Their life is supposed to challenge us to do better. “Consider the outcome of their way of life.”
Decide to be a good role model to your kids, friends, and spouse. It will provoke them to good works.
- Leaders live by faith.
It takes faith to venture into a new area. Faith in God can make a man blaze a new path. You need faith to marry, start a new business or heal the sick. A leader must be able to tread where others fear to tread otherwise he cannot lead.
Decide to be a good leader and practice these principles.
