You can define spiritual leadership as “moving people from where they are to where God wants them to be.”
As a leader, you will interact with others of varying stages of spiritual development.
As you mature spiritually, you gain a better grasp on the extent of your liberty in Christ as well as the responsibility that brings.
In what way could your behaviors become a stumbling block to others (Rom 14:19-22)?
Listen to your heart’s yearning for God.
Your flesh tries to rule you. Fight against it. Realize how its pleasures last only a short time.
Break the bondage by continuing to think of the eternal. Listen to God’s Spirit and submit. Give Him an opportunity to speak to you through: your prayer time, your Bible reading, your serving, and your praise. Yield control to the Spirit.
Using Romans 12:9-21, evaluate yourself as a servant leader. For each characteristic, to what degree does it describe you? How would others rate you?
(For extra credit, have someone rate you. Then, discuss the ratings.)
