And the people served the LORD
all the days of Joshua, and all
the days of the elders that
outlived Joshua, who had seen
all the great works of the LORD,
that he did for Israel
(Judges 2:7).

What moves a true leader? What makes
him “tick?” A simple answer can be
summarized in one word: conviction. Conviction
moves a leader; a leader, in turn, moves others.
The most effective leadership is certainly not
compulsion, nor is it merely verbal persuasion.
The most effective leadership is when the strength
of a man’s convictions radiate from both his
words and his actions (Joshua 24:15).

Genuine faith is “a conviction of things not seen”
(Hebrews 11:1, ASV). It is fostered and grown
only with a steady diet of God’s word (Romans
10:17). Then, may God use our convicted lives as
beacons in a world of darkness (Matthew 5:16).
If we are truly convicted, all of us can lead by
example.
