Quotes About Being A Godly Leader

So often in the church, being a pastor or a "spiritual leader" means being the example of  "godly living." A pastor is supposed to be the person who is really good at this Christianity stuff — the person others can look to as an example of righteousness. But as much as being the person who is the best Christian, who "follows Jesus" the most closely can feel a little seductive, its simply never been who I am or who my parishioners need me to be. Im not running after Jesus. Jesus is running my ass down. Yeah, I am a leader, but Im leading them onto the street to get hit by the speeding bus of confession and absolution, sin and sainthood, death and resurrection — that is, the gospel of  Jesus Christ. Im a leader, but only by saying, "Oh, screw it. Ill go first.
