In the Greek language, a first class conditional sentence structure is translated as since. Even though the English often reads if, a first class conditional sentence structure demands a greater certainty.
Transferring this idea into areas of leadership carries an interesting thought.
Imagine the structure of our leadership from the standpoint of certainty. No longer would we speak of if concerning the various activities we would like to accomplish, but rather the certainty of saying since these conditions exist we know the outcome.
Since we are going to influence a minimum of four people a day, we should be moved to study greater levels of leadership and the opportunity to make a greater difference.
Since we are trying to lead others to heaven we should prepare ourselves with a greater understanding of God’s word.
Since we are also working to keep the saved, saved, we should be more tolerant in matters of personal opinion and work together to achieve unity.
A number of areas could be considered, but the idea is the same. Let us lead with the certainty needed to make the future of the church stronger. Think Souls.
