"If we walk in the light, as He is in the light, we have fellowship one with another, and the Blood of Jesus Christ, His Son, cleanseth us from all sin" John 1,7
The beginning an the end of all Christian leadership is to give your life for others.
Thinking about martyrdom can be an escape unless we realize that real martyrdom means a witness that starts with the willingness to cry with those who cry, laugh with those who laugh, and to make one´s own painful and joyful experiences available as sources of clarification and understanding.
(The wounded healer p.72)
A Christian leader is a man of hope whose strength in the final analysis is absed neither on self-confidence derived from his personality, nor on specific expectations from the future, but on a promise given to him.
(The wounded healer p.76)
Christian leadership is to give up and risk all, just to save the others.
