In this final installment on Manspeak’s Leadership Devotion Series, it is back to the basics.

As we have looked at the purpose, the power, our precursor, some principles, and the perfecter of biblical Leadership, it is my duty to exhort you, yeah you, reading this and each of the other posts…DON’T STOP! Don’t grow weary in seeking to serve others for the glory of God (the goal of leadership).

Remember Jesus Christ, who did not come to be served, but TO serve, and to become our ransom payment on the cross!

Let this truth motivate you to pursue biblical leadership for the rest of your life! The great news is that your standing before God is not dependent on how well you perform this duty (and it IS a duty). United with Christ though faith, all Christian men will hear the declaration of not guilty! How amazing!

But don’t let this truth (and I don’t believe that the biblical response to the genuine belief of this truth) lead you to laziness. Instead, let us strive forward to lead in a revolutionary way, through service. Let men see our good works and praise our Father in heaven.

Men, it is our responsibility and privilege to be leaders in whatever roles the Lord has for us. I pray that this series has better equipped you in some way to pursue this lifelong goal. I pray that God’s church is filled with men who seek to lead and serve! I pray that you will passionately seek to live for Christ, guided by his word, submitting to the leadership that God has provided for you, and then being ambitious for HIS glory.

Amen.
