What does it mean to lead? In the most basic sense, to lead is to go in front and show the way.
Like the call to repentance, the aim should be to live our lives in such a way as to evoke a sense of longing for the ‘something more’ that Christians may have – an experience of and relationship with God.
Jesus said, “Ye are the light of the world. A city that is set on an hill cannot be hid. Neither do men light a candle, and put it under a bushel, but on a candlestick; and it giveth light unto all that are in the house. Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” – Matthew 5:14-16
The function of Leadership also demands a willingness to help somebody make that step if they want us to, in other words to ‘lead them’ to Christ.
Hopefully you can see that there is a great deal of inter-connectedness – with Mission and evangelisation and so on.
