Can you think of any greater privilege than to be called to be a leader in the church of Jesus Christ? The church is his Body, his Bride, the Temple of his Spirit, his Flock, his Army, and his Family.
Can you think of any greater responsibility than leading his church?
This is why God's Word gives us such challenging requirements for Christian leadership. The standards are high, for both the church's vitality and the leader's vitality.
