Spiritual leadership is not won by
but by prayers and tears.
It is attained by much heart searching and humbling before
God; by self-surrender, a courageous sacrifice of every idol,
a bold, uncompromising, and uncomplaining embracing of the
cross, and by an eternal, unfaltering looking unto Jesus
This is a great price, but it must be unflinchingly paid by him
who would be a real spiritual leader of men, a leader whose
power is recognized and felt in heaven, on earth and in hell.
