God has called you through Baptism to be a spiritual leader!

Yes, we’ve all been created by God through the Holy Spirit to lead in our home, church, and community.  This may seem easier for some than others, but keep your trust in God – He will bless you with all that is needed.

Leadership can be seen by how we influence other people.  As a follower of Christ, you are called to influence them by your faith.  Jesus said it this way: “You are the salt of the earth … You are the light of the world … Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works and glorify your Father in heaven” (Matt. 5:13–16). 

Sociologists say that an introverted person will influence an average of 10,000 people.  Just think about that.  Someone who’s not even trying to lead will impact them by what they do and how they live. See yourself as a leader for the Lord and learn from the men and women who did so in the Bible.  Embrace your Spirit given gifts and find joy in leading — for God has blessed you.
