Servants Lead

"That the leaders took the lead in Israel,
     that the people offered themselves willingly,
     bless the Lord!"

"My heart goes out to the commanders of Israel
     who offered themselves willingly among the people.
     Bless the Lord!"

(Excerpts from the song of Deborah and Barak)

If Christ has commissioned us to go out and do something, we must go, offer ourselves willingly and take the lead.  Christ doesn't talk very much about leadership, but he has a lot to say about servanthood.  We serve others by leading them towards the goal he has set for us.
