You may not think so but we are all leaders at some point in our lives. Some of us will be leaders who are known throughout the world; while others will be coaches, teachers, parents, or neighborhood-watch captains. If you don’t fit into any of these categories that’s ok!
You see, “…if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here! All this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting people’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us. We implore you on Christ’s behalf: Be reconciled to God. God made him who had no sin to be sin for us, so that in him we might become the righteousness of God”. – 2 Corinthians 5:17-21 NIV
Said another way, once we receive Christ we are called to live differently. The words we say, the hobbies we pursue, the friendships we cultivate, the books we read, the entertainment we enjoy, and the God we serve should all point others in the same direction.
The question is, what kind of leader are you? Do you SHOW others the way to Christ or send them running as fast as they can in the other direction?
