Becoming a Good Leader

"[T]he rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, ... but whoever desires to become great among you, let him be your servant ... just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many." - Jesus (Matthew 20:25b-26, 28 NKJV)

Jesus pulled his disciples aside for a much needed leadership lesson. But he wasn't telling them how to become leaders, as many interpret this passage, he was telling them what kind of leaders to become.

We who respond to God's heart pull to follow Christ have already been chosen for leadership,1 the focus now is how to become a good leader.
