God’s Kingdom needs Godly leaders! In order to fulfill this role, a Godly leader needs to understand what a leader really is. Not only does he need to understand the mission and what is required, but he needs to be able to convey its benefits to others and that he is capable of leading others to that eventuality. In my upcoming book, The Language of Leadership, I will explore what a leader looks like, what a leader sounds like, what a leader says, what a leader isn’t, how to convey leadership, what to do to show others you can lead, the 16 Biblical qualities of a leader and how to convey confidence when you’re not quite so confident that what you must do will be well-received. A leader is not someone who is simply “in charge” for I have known many a boss who had no idea how to lead those under his authority. A leader is not someone who is always right, as there are many great leaders who have failed. A leader is not someone who is merely popular. How many times in history have great leaders needed strength to overcome the popular thinking of the time? A leader is not someone who is bossy. Being in charge does give you the right to demand of your underlings, but only true leadership will bring peace and cooperation and stability to a situation.
