Leadership and Influence
Leadership can really be defined by influence. Being a leader, and therefore having influence, means we have the capacity to affect the character, development and behaviour of others.
One of the non-negotiable laws of leadership and influence is that we will reproduce after our own kind. Therefore, who we are internally, the true nature of our heart, is what will ultimately determine what we sow into the lives of others. While leadership may include a title or a role, every believer is called to be an influencer, an Ambassador for Christ.
When we take the path of leadership, at any level, we are making the choice to no longer live life unto ourselves in splendid isolation from the needs of others. Rather, we choose to be poured out as healing, redemptive oil upon the lives of those who have chosen to trust that leadership grace in our lives.
