The idea of life is threaded throughout the very thought of Jesus and his existence. In him was life and the life was the light of men. Jesus came that we might have life and have it more abundantly.
However, the most common thought about life is connected to both the quantity and quality of what Jesus offers, eternal life.
This offer is available for all, but not all will receive it. The gospel of John emphasizes these truths.
Our spiritual leadership is directly related to this life we have been discussing. We are giving others a chance to live.
Not everyone will accept it. Some will need our patience to learn more about it. The thrill of ministry is witnessing those who understand and enjoy God’s gracious gift in Christ by their obedient response.
While there are many areas associated with leadership and all of them have value, when we really narrow it all down to the most significant need, we are focused on an offer of life. The quantity and quality of this gift makes life worth living and leadership worth following.
