Servant Leadership

Filed under: Uncategorized — navygoat1998 @ 01:31

In ministry you are called into a life of a servant  leader.  Jesus told us in His word that Jesus came to minister and not to be ministered to.  How is that many today have we lost that mind set?

Servant leadership is leadership that is born out of love.  This love is the same love that hung Christ on the Cross. This is the same love that kept Christ on the Cross.   There is no room in the heart of a servant for pride.  A servant never says “Will you serve me”?  A servant says “How may I serve you”  Christ on the Cross says I came to serve and not to be served.

Jesus told His Disciples not to lord their positions like the gentiles.  Christ said that He is meek in Spirit.  Meek in Spirit does not lord.  Christ was born in a manager and had no place to call home.  Ministers you must not lord your position over those that you serve.   Let those who minister do so with a fair hand and out of love for God.
