Quotable

17 Jun

“Leaders need a quiet confidence in Jesus to rule through his word, by His Spirit.  We need to teach and model the word of God.  We need to get alongside people lovingly to encourage them and, where necessary, rebuke them.  But all this is done in the confidence that it is Jesus who rules His church.  He is the one to whom we are to look and he calls us to follow Him, and submit to His leadership, even in the way we lead.  He is the Servant King, and we are called to live as servant leaders–not lording it over the flock, but always behaving as under-shepherds.”
-Steve Timmis, Gospel Centered Leadership (the good book company, 2012)
