A model provides an example to follow or emulate. Spiritual leaders must model several areas for others.
Model a Christian life. We are not perfect, but we can portray an example of those who work with our imperfections and improve how we approach life.
Model leadership. Not only should we love to lead, but we should live for it. We need to dig deeper and speak often about helping others learn to lead.
Model grace. The one word others need to hear from us is grace. We must believe in, live by, and trust completely in God’s grace. Hold on to God’s promise.
May we always live the model of Christ before others.
