The author paints the leader as a model in everything. He is the one who sees what God has in mind and takes the people of God in that direction. Such a leader’s heart is welded to each sheep. A successful spiritual leadership cannot be separated from the production of other leaders. Leadership is the overflow of a person’s devotion to God.
The author also portrays revolutionary leadership as that leadership whose glory is in its identification with the glorified Christ in His suffering and humiliation, thereby distinguishing it from ordinary leadership.
