Are You A Leader?


“And hath made us kings and priests unto God and His Father; to Him be glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen!” (Revelation 1:6)

One commodity the world is in short supply of is good leaders. Even in families, they are needed. A family can be the smallest organisation – comprising the husband and his wife. Yet, if the man lacks leadership skills to provide the required direction, guidance, coordination and control, it may be difficult for the family to realize its collective goal. Every organization is only as good as its leaders. Therefore, it becomes mandatory for future leaders to acquire leadership training, education and skills. To succeed, you will need to learn from those who succeeded or failed and why they had such outcomes.


“For many are called, but few are chosen” (Matthew 22:14). Position of leadership is not meant for all but for the chosen few. In the world, there is a large space for followers, whereas the space reserved for leaders is quite small. But in the Kingdom of God, it is possible for everyone who receives Jesus Christ as Lord and personal Saviour to become a leader. Revelation 1:6 says Christ has made us kings and priests unto God the Father. Every king has his sphere of influence, area of authority, and subjects under him. If you have been saved, then exercise your God-given authority and dominion over sin, sickness, satan, agents of darkness and elemental forces. If they are convinced you know your kingdom rights, they will have no choice but to obey you.

Believers in Christ are destined to reign for 1000 years with the KING of kings during the millennial reign and then eternally with Jesus Christ. In other words, you were born to reign. However, are you preparing for this great leadership opportunity? Some people struggle, fight, malign others and carry out all tricks in the book just to have an opportunity of occupying a leadership position during their lifetime. But after a few years in that position, they become eternally irrelevant. In contrast, you can be relevant today and in eternity. You may not become a president, governor or captain of industry but you can become the spiritual father of the president or governor. You can become the mentor youths would like to pattern their lives after. You can become a reference point standing as light in a dark world. Are you occupying this vantage position?

God sees you as a leader. But if you do not see yourself as such, you may never lead throughout your life.

May the LORD bless Nigeria, American and Israel and take care of us; May the LORD make His face shine upon us, And be gracious to us; May the Lord lift up His countenance upon us, And give us peace, In Jesus Christ Name, we pray! Amen!

  5. It is good that we have men who put up their hands for the exacting role of leadership and we should pray for our leaders. But of course some come from the ranks of imperfect like we all do and make mistakes. We remember before Pentecost even the disciples argued at the last supper who would be the greatest, so God in His ecomony still uses us flawed and all and when we are perfected in Love, His good works are begun. 2 Timothy 2:19-21



  6. Hi Bummyla strange you pingbacked a joke for such a serious message but then laughter is a gift from God we can all enjoy, so thank you.

    I agree with you Leadership is a God given role and as you said a Man is called to be a Leader in his home and also in the Church body , Woman are their helpmates a gift from God to encourage and support and uplift and also as the Scriptures show to correct if needed, we are all called to do this when we see error.

    This was a great message Bummyla and the Scripture that came to me was …

    1Peter 2:9 But ye are a Chosen Generation, a Royal Priesthood, an Holy Nation, a peculiar people; that ye should shew forth the praises of Him who hath called you out of darkness into His marvellous light;
