John’s writings identify the type of leadership he provided for the church. As I mentioned last week, several of these qualities provide an example for us today.
Fellowship: John understood the value of fellowship among Christians and with the Lord. He urged Christians to walk in fellowship with God and each other.
Vision: John knew the future of the church depended on men who were willing to work in the fields of harvest. He also knew such men needed support.
Servant: John’s writings about Jesus as a servant were followed by his own example to the church. Reading through his letters shows the qualities of a servant leader.
