Colonel BP McCoy, USMC, wrote a short leadership book entitled “The Passion of Command: The Moral Imperative of Leadership.” In the beginning of this book, he begins with this warning: “Without genuine concern, this is all worthless.” In doing so, I think he had two points. The first is that the rest of the leadership advice he offers will be worthless if you don’t have a genuine concern about your people and the mission. The second is that you will be a worthless leader if you don’t have genuine concern about your people and the mission. The same is true among Christian Americans.
If you don’t have genuine concern about the ungodly direction of our nation, then you probably won’t bother taking a meaningful leadership role to begin with. If you don’t have genuine concern about the ungodly direction of our nation, then any leadership role you do decide upon will be ineffectual. Either way, your leadership will be worthless and the cause of Christ will suffer in America.
America needs worthwhile Christian citizens. America needs worthwhile Christian leaders. America needs worthwhile Christ-like leadership. America needs worthwhile change. America needs Christians who would demonstrate genuine concern for our land. PLEASE PRAY THAT YOUR GENUINE CONCERN FOR OUR NATION WOULD TRANSLATE INTO WORTHWHILE CHRISTIAN LEADERSHIP. America will suffer if its Christian citizens are worthless.
