Real Life: Living With Leadership

At CrossWay on Sunday we picked up again with the Real Life series in a message called “Living with Leadership.”  We spent some time looking at 1 Thessalonians 5:12-13a and Hebrews 13:17.

These passages talk about the importance of supporting our leaders.  Leaders are not only those who hold a position of authority over us.  Leaders are those who influence us.  Leadership is influence.  In the church, leaders are those who influence people to move from where they are toward where God wants them to be.

We have responsibilities to our leaders.  These passages teach that we must support and love them.  How can we do this?  Pray for them, follow them, become good leaders ourselves, and step up into whatever leadership roles God is calling us to.

Two questions for you:

(1) Who are you following?  (That is, who is influencing you?)

(2) Who is following you?  (That is, who are you influencing?)
