Just came across this blog this afternoon on Twitter. This gentleman (Chris Brady) defines leadership:
Leadership is not a subset of management theory or political theory or business theory. It is central to all human activity. There are always those individuals who dare to stand up to injustice, stand in the gap of need, and stand on principle. They use what they have, where they are, to fix what they see as being wrong. They improve things, move them along, and contribute to the overall picture by their individual actions.
That is leadership.
Chris goes on to say:
And we need it now from individuals everywhere.
As Christians in the Lord’s kingdom, we can certainly “Amen” that statement!
Now comes the most soul-searching question of all:
Will you respond?
Brethren, not only does the world need leaders, but the church of our Lord needs leaders as well.
Let us pray that God will provide church leaders willing (quoting from this gentleman’s article) “to stand up to injustice, stand in the gap of need, and stand on principle.”
Now the question is, “Will we as members of the Lord’s church respond?”
