It seems that yesterday’s post didn’t go out through MailChimp. It’s worth the read: http://thegloryofchrist.com/the-lamb-of-god/ Here’s the one for today. What’s the measure of a true Christian leader?
The two disciples heard him say this, and they followed Jesus.
John’s mission and mandate was “to bear witness about the light, that all might believe through him” (John 1:7). His main message was to point to “the Lamb of God.” That’s also our main message. When John’s disciples heard him talk about Jesus, highlight Him as God’s Lamb, they left John and followed Jesus.
What would be the opposite? Sects and sectarian tendencies try to pull its hearers to themselves. They like to emphasize that the truth is really (and only) found with them, discouraging the adherents from other real and legitimate Christian churches.
Whenever a Christian leader tries to attract and keep the hearers to himself, he’s lost the Biblical mandate, which is to always point to Jesus and follow Him. John had no problem with his disciples leaving him as long as they were following Jesus. Isn’t that the test of a true Christian leader?
