We have to change our idea of Leadership from being primarily related to having followers, in ministry of some kind, to primarily related to setting an example. We embrace the knowledge that we are going first — trailblazer, pilgrim, mistake-maker and risk-taker. Though we may never see who comes behind, we leave a clear trail for others to follow, knowing some, or one, will, one day, follow.
We are all leaders because we are all of His Spirit. Be deliberate in leaving a trail, in setting an example for others to follow. As you depend on God, He will make His way clear.
