GOD TEACHES US ABOUT CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP THROUGH THREE MAIN RESOURCES
God doesn’t leave us to make it up ourselves but has generously provided resources.
God’s Word is the primary and foundational source of teaching on Christian leadership.
The Christian leader must follow God’s general moral precepts (The Ten Commandments) and leader-specific precepts and commands (e.g. 1 Tim. 3:2; 2 Tim. 2:24).
God also provides us with models, or metaphors, of leadership: the servant, the shepherd, the captain, the father, the steward, etc.
These models come alive in the lives of Jesus, biblical characters, church history, and in our pastors and elders.
AND GOD’S PROVIDENCE
In God’s gracious providence, he has given leadership gifts to many outside the Church: We can learn from leaders in politics, the military, sports, business, etc., as long as we use the Bible first, most, as our framework, and as our sieve.
SUMMARY: God teaches us about Christian leadership through three main resources: his precepts, his patterns, and his providence.
