Leading From Behind

Give to everyone what you owe them… and give respect and honor to those who are in authority. – Romans 13:7

The way of Christianity is the path of Servant Leadership.  Jesus, while the greatest leader ever to walk the earth, demonstrated how the heart of this new philosophy would be service.  All that follow Him would also have to wear the mantle of a servant and lead by motivation, persuasion, and love.

Those who devote themselves to the ministries of Christ must sacrifice all, bear much, and endure more than most to be true to their call. We, lay leaders, followers and seekers, are only asked to support the work of God’s Church and His ministers.  We can be the wind beneath their wings or the weight upon their shoulders.  Let us give today to enable them fly, so that in the end, we will all rise right along-side them.
