To lead is to sacrifice. Sacrifice is found at every level of leadership. When will the sacrifice need to be made? How large of a sacrifice will be necessary?
Perhaps above all, are we willing to make the sacrifice?
If we go below the surface and examine Paul’s leadership, we will find a leader who made great sacrifice. His level of sacrifice is exemplified throughout his writings. He speaks of sacrifices made in the past, present, and future. Whatever it took, he was willing to do.
We could spend weeks considering all the sacrifices required of leaders today. Regardless of what may come to mind, let us arise and make the necessary sacrifices to lead. God demands it and the church depends on it.
