What God says in Hebrews 13 should be of interest to every Christian – whether leader or led. To the leader it asks, ‘Have I got my priorities and style right?’ To the led it asks, ‘Allowing for human failings, have I got essentially faithful Biblical leadership?’ It also asks a too infrequently voiced question: ‘What are my responsibilities to my leaders, not just what are theirs to me?’
In Hebrews 13 the writer is summing up his argument and drawing conclusions. Good leaders are important in a church in danger of drifting. They need to get their priorities right and be as a result taken seriously. They have a very important part to play in the health and well-being of the church.
