How can we reconcile the idea of servanthood with God's call to some to assume leadership positions?

Discipleship is not blind obedience but guided (directed) growth. When there is no guidance, no oversight and no vision, God's people lose sight of the greater goals of living by God's standards to bring about God's purposes (His Kingdom).

The laws (as a whole) reveal to us the basic morality required by God. What makes the Ten Commandments unique is the character of the God who gave them. Without God, the Commandments lose their distinctiveness

Jesus certainly knew the Law and often referred to it. It is possible to say that Jesus was both a critic of the Law and a supporter of it. What, though, do we make of Jesus' apparent addition to the laws – the new command of John 13:34? Does that contradict what God has already said or is this Grace the natural outworking of our relationship with God?

God’s call to serve does not necessarily come to those who we expect - the articulate, the power brokers, the influential. God uses those who will put aside self to ensure that it is the Kingdom of God that is being built

Are we listening to God more than we listen to ourselves or our culture? How can we ensure that God’s voice can be heard? How ready are we to leave the past behind? (Not total rejection but recognising its worth and building on achievements, failures & lessons)

Learning from example we see what it’s really like to engage with God.

Those examples may be good – and they may have a powerful impact on how we live. But, in the long run, we have to choose which way to go even though Granddad may have walked with God, we have to choose to, as well
