Lead on sisters and brothers. Lead by following Jesus. Influence as many people as you can to be His followers.
Start right where you are. Younger? Older? Limited exposure or opportunity? Only because you have not taken advantage of who you are and who lives in you. You can impress the person next to you on the bus with your witness. Use your imagination, bathed in prayer and take a step of faith.
Don’t try to start where you are not. You may have a title or want one. Without the presence of God and His leading, don’t do it. Measure the depth of your capacity and try not to overstate your potential. Some are legends in their own minds. Search your soul before God, reckon what real potential you have and press on. People recognize authenticity and will generally not follow a fake.
Start leading from where you are. Start witnessing from where you are. Start encouraging from where you are. Start.
