I have learned so much from my friend and brother, Dr. Munroe. It has been mostly his ministry that has caused me to be where I am today in my purpose. I love sharing what I have learned with others and the world.
Now, though we are called to be leaders, we cannot become leaders unless we know what a leader is and understand the nature of true leadership. On one hand, it is virtually impossible to fully define the concept of leadership because of its complexity. Leadership consists of an array of diverse qualities, qualifications, components, skills, capabilities and even unquantifiable elements. On the other hand, for more than two thousand years, the study of leadership--what leadership is and what makes an individual a leader--has produced a body of knowledge, information and references. For this reason, leadership will always remain somewhat a mystery. Through reading, studying God's Constitution and living the Kingdom life, I have grown to reflect His presence in my everyday life more every day. By the way, did I fail to mention that I have a wonderful, Spirit-filled and sensitive wife, that assists and encourages me in my leadership abilities?
These findings are worth our consideration because they provide a framework through which we can identify qualities and principles that give leadership a measure of definition. Our best example is the life of Christ our King. But you must view Him for who He is (King), not a religious leader. Do you remember what King Herod asked the wise men from the east? "Where is He who has been born King of the Jews?" Jesus is the ultimate leader, and we are kings and He is King of kings. "And He has on His robe and on His thigh a name written: King of kings and Lord of lords."
It has been my experience to watch many individuals copy other individuals to be an effective leader, instead of going to the One who created them. If you want to become a great leader, go to the One who was the greatest follower and study His life and words while He was here on earth.
