HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
There are no doubt many other qualities which could be mentioned which, if a person has, would make him an even more successful leader. These are simply the ones that came to my mind as I was pondering this subject. One need not excel in every one of them. But the more fully each one is developed in a person the more powerful and fruitful he will be as a leader.
Let me emphasize again that it is the inner circle that makes the leadership spiritual.
All genuine leadership begins in a sense of desperation; knowledge that we are helpless sinners in need of a great saviour. That moves us to listen to God in his Word and cry out to him for help and for insight in prayer. That leads us to trust in God and to hope in his great and precious promises. This frees us for a life of love and service which, in the end, causes people to see and give glory to our Father in heaven.
