One of the most amazing stories in the Bible is Jesus (God in a body) washing the disciples’ feet. This act of serving and humility is both challenging and convicting.
Putting other’s interests first or seeing what is best for others and placing that above yourself or your own agenda is the example that Jesus taught and modeled.
The Apostle Paul also shared Jesus’ leadership philosophy. He said in Philippians chapter 2, verses 3 and 4, “Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit. Rather, in humility value others above yourselves, not looking to your own interests but each of you to the interests of the others.”
Humility and consideration of other’s interests first is what servant leadership is all about. Our attitude towards others and ourselves is key in forming a leadership style that matches the heart of Jesus and the principles laid out in the Word of God.
Jesus said in Luke 22: 27, “For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.”
We have a Ministry Expo training event taking place in Hiram on Wednesday, Jan 18 and on Sunday, Jan 29 at our Tennessee campus. We will feed you and provide detailed training for each ministry team.
I Challenge you to get involved in serving. Don’t be satisfied with “just attending”…move to another level in your spiritual life and do something for Jesus! Come to the Ministry Expo and be trained/equipped to serve and do the best job possible.
