An obligation is an act or course of action to which a person is morally or legally bound; a duty or commitment.
While it is impossible to force someone to do anything, we tend to use our skills of persuasion whenever we can to motivate others into action.
When we consider leadership, we need to examine our obligation to Christ and others.
We have tasted the grace of God. We enjoy the gift of salvation. Just the thought carries a moral and spiritual obligation.
Considering our obligation highlights the need to commit ourselves to lead others to heaven.
