Leadership should not be our prime focus - our even our first calling - worship is. Leadership should be seen as a means to worship and revere the Name of God. I do like John Piper's statement on the primacy of worship: "Missions is not the ultimate goal of the church. Worship is. Missions exists because worship doesn't. Worship is ultimate, not missions, because God is ultimate, not man. When this age is over, and the countless millions of the redeemed fall on their faces before the throne of God, missions will be no more. It is a temporary necessity. But worship abides forever."
Worship should be our primary call and function. Leadership in obedience is simply a means to worship Him.
