characteristics of a spiritual leader found in acts 18

Lesson 22- Profile of a Leader from the Book of Acts

Characteristics of a Spiritual Leader found in Acts 18:

1. Leaders Never Travel Alone.

“and Priscilla and Acquilla were with him”

(Acts 18:18).

We must constantly be involved in the internship/ apprenticeship method of training. This is called, “on-the-job training.” This is the method Jesus used as He trained His twelve traveling companions for three and a half years. We must always practice disciple making.

2. Leaders Have a Hidden Life with God

“For he had a vow”

(Acts 18:18).

He had a deep commitment to the Lord and wanted to obey. It has been said the “leader who leads also precedes.” You must be an example of all you ask your people to do. Do not ask them to give, fast, or pray unless you are willing to give, fast, and pray. We “should practice what we preach.”

5. Leaders Know When to Say, “No”

“He consented not”

(Acts 18:20)

True leadership comes when we know what God wants and we act accordingly. Many problems arise in churches when leaders do not stay long enough to see a breakthrough. Another danger is for leaders to stay in a given area of responsibility too long.

Lesson 22- Profile of a Leader from the Book of Acts

In these times of follow up, new believers should be:

  • Contacted and prayed with;
  • Instructed in sound doctrine;
  • Encouraged to meet others to fellowship within a Bible- believing in church;
  • Encouraged to pray, worship, fast, witness, and read the Word;
  • Encouraged to be used in the gifts of the Spirit and manifest the fruit of the Spirit.

It is not correct to evangelize and make converts without proper follow up.
