11 Oct Thread #65: Stepping Up to Lead
It’s natural for anyone to recoil at being the one in charge. The Bible is filled with stories of leaders who started off hesitantly, knowing the cost associated with being the point person. If you are called though, there is an unavoidable day when you need to stand up and willingly accept the role of leader and take control of the ship for the benefit of others and to insure the mission.
Are you supposed to take the lead? Is it your calling? That’s what you have to know. Leadership roles don’t last forever. You step into them and later you need to turn things over to someone else, but for your season you need to have a conviction that being the leader is, in fact, God’s calling on your life.
That’s what happened to Peter, the Apostle in this episode of Thread.
