The clearest job description for Christ-followers is seen here in Matthew 4:19. We read…“’Come, follow me,’ Jesus said, ‘and I will make your fishers of men.’”
Worthy leadership always flows out of faithful followership.
If we seek to be faithful influencers in the home, workplace, at school or in culture, then we will always take seriously our need to follow closely after Jesus. You will be hard pressed to find a humble, godly, servant-leader who isn’t also faithfully pursuing Christ. To be in authority makes being under authority all the more essential. Being under Christ’s authority is the foundation for all healthy leadership and if you notice Jesus’ Words, He says that He Himself will turn us into “fishers of men”, as we submit to His lead. What a great privilege!
