“Jesus didn’t recruit leaders for his ministry. He didn’t go to the local synagogue and place a notice on the bulletin board, announcing that he was taking resumes and setting up interviews for potential leaders. (Only the best and the brightest need apply)… Jesus wasn’t looking for leaders at all. Jesus was looking for followers… The life story of all Christians should be “they left all and followed Jesus.”
