The making of a Christian leader...
Today's 90 day NT challenge is Luke 10 - 12.
Being a leader means that people are following you. But the first thing that any leader should be doing is leading theirself. That's right... Are you leading yourself...?
Hebrews 11: 11 By faith Sarah herself also received strength to conceive seed, and she bore a child when she was past the age, because she judged Him faithful who had promised.
Are you leading yourself into "judging God is faithful"... leading yourself into daily devotion? Leading yourself to trust in God's faithfulness towards your life. Leading yourself to first be a good follower before people will trust to begin to follow you.
Genesis 1: 12 And the earth brought forth grass, the herb that yields seed according to its kind, and the tree that yields fruit, whose seed is in itself according to its kind. And God saw that it was good
Each seed reproduces seed of it's own kind. We can only reproduce in others what is first in us. So if we want the people we are leading to be faithful followers of Christ then let our private and public lives be reflective of men and women who are faithfully following Christ. Then your discipleship efforts and leadership will be more effective in raising up Godly Christians. Blessings!
