Servant Leadership – Conclusion (6 of 6)

January 31, 2012 § Leave a comment

Conclusion

In essence, being a servant leader is aligning oneself with the leadership example of Jesus Christ. We must seek to emulate him. Our service to others must precede our leadership roles. One must follow before he can lead. Christ’s model is others-centered; he expects us to be likewise in thinking of ourselves less and less—i.e. dying to self—and embracing an outward focus that seeks to serve. This is what being a follower of Jesus Christ is like: we must seek to be like him. And, in all we do we must reflect the teaching of Paul in Colossians 3:23-24:

“Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord you are serving.”
