Title: SERVANT LEADERSHIP

SERVANT LEADERSHIP
February 26, 2011
  • Christ Centered Faith Ministry
  • Master J Food Product
  • Purok 5, Aguinaldo Hiway, Brgy. Lumil, Silang,
    Cavite

BORN TO LEAD Gen. 1 26 - 31
  • Being made in Gods Image means we were created
    to lead (v. 26)
  • After God says Late us make man in our
    own image, He says, Let them have dominion.
    One way we can reflect Gods Image is by Leading.
  • God commanded both male and female to have
    dominion (V.27)
  • Both men and women have been given the
    ability and authority to lead.
  • Leadership is not generic in nature.

3. We are to rule over the earth, but not
necessarily over each other (v. 28) We were
not directed to rule each other, but over the
earths creatures. History is largely the
story of how men and women have perverted their
God-given roles by trying to rule each
other.
  • All of us are to serve one another in the areas
    of our gifting and purpose (vv. 29 30)
  • God created everything for a purpose. Our
    general purpose is to lead, but each of us should
    ask God, Lord, whats my specific purpose?.

5. Each persons leadership is best exercised in
his or her area of giftedness (v.31) When we
discover our gifts, we will naturally lead in
those areas where we are most productive,
intuitive, comfortable, influential, and
satisfied.

WHEN GOD CHOOSES A LEADER Exodus 211- 420
Moses provides a wonderful case study on how God
calls a leader out of a crowd to perform an
assignment.
  • God gives the leader an emotional investment in
    the work.
  • Moses bought into the idea of freeing
    the Hebrews from bondage even before God called
    him to the task.
  • God affirms the leader through others.
  • When Moses told Jethro about his encounter
    at the burning bush, his father-in-law affirmed
    him.

3. God gives the leader mentors. Moses
asked for and received help from Jethro, Aaron
and others.
  • God builds on the leaders strength, experiences
    and background
  • God used everything in Moses background
    to help him fulfill his calling the fine
    education he received in Egypt his knowledge of
    Pharaoh his understanding of Egypt and his time
    in the wilderness.
  • God often refines the leaders character in
    obscurity.
  • Moses receives a 40 year seminary
    education in the desert.
  • God instills in the leader the value of hard work
  • Moses may not have worked much in the
    Egyptian palace, but he learned its worth in the
    dessert!
  • God sustains that leader with a powerful vision.
  • Moses caught the vision of the Promised
    Land long before the Hebrew slaves did.
  • God brings others alongside the leader to
    compensate for their weaknesses.
  • Moses enjoyed the help of Aaron as
    spokesperson, Joshua as general, and Hur as
    battle supporter.

THE LEADER AS A SHEPHERDPsalm 231-6
David described the Lord as a Shepherd
Both Old and New Testaments use the term
Shepherd to illustrate Leadership. The word
communicates the love, nurture, intimacy and
spiritual care a godly leader provides.
  • Psalm 23 describes the Ultimate Shepherd
    performing several functions
  • The Shepherd.
  • Provides (v.1)
  • Gives rest (v.2)
  • Confidently leads (v.3)
  • Renews and restores (v.3)
  • Guides and directs (v.3)
  • Protects (v.4)
  • Corrects and comforts (v.4)
  • Feeds and anoints (v.5)
  • Loves (v.6)
  • Furnishes permanent shelter (v.6)

5
The Commitment of a Leader Deut. 77 - 9
Good leaders model commitment before they ask
anyone else to do. God promised to keep His
commitment to His people for thousand
generations (Deut. 79). He reminds them that
he didnt free them because they deserved it. It
is not because they were the largest nation on
earth, but because He loved them.
6
THE HEART OF AN EFFECTIVE LEADERActs 2018-24
Who you are comes before what you do. Leadership
is being before doing.
Ingredients of effective leader according to Paul
as he spoke to the Ephesians.
  • Leadership begins with the heart.
  • Paul had a HEART THAT was
  • Consistent he lived steadfastly while moving
    among them (v.8)
  • Contrite he acted humbly and willingly (v.19)
  • Courageous he didnt shrink from doing the
    right thing (v.20)
  • Convictional he communicated his convictions
    boldly (v.21)
  • Committed he left for Jerusalem, willing to die
    for Jesus (vv.
  • 22-23)
  • Captivated He showed that a surrendered man
    doesnt have to
  • survive (v.24)

SERVANTHOOD Leaders Serve Their People and
Their Purpose 2 Chronicles 22 1 - 9
What kind of impact can godliness character have
on leaders and nations? We find out in the life
of King Ahazia. The young king and several other
political and military leaders lost their lives
and their positions through self-centered pursuit
of power. They forgot that a leader must serve
his people and his purpose. Leaders are not
given authority to better themselves, to enlarge
their income or social status, or to improve
their standard of living. They are first and
always servants of others,
Our Lord Jesus Christ Teaches us about servant
leadership
  • Human Economy
  • Pursuit of power and prestige
  • Improve wealth and status of the Leader
  • See others as enemies and competitors
  • Motive is to remove of kill position
  • The result the leader is glorified
  • Gods Economy
  • 1. Pursuit of love and service to others
  • 2. Improve the welfare of the people
  • 3. See others as brothers who complement
  • Motive is to meet needs and grow the
  • cause
  • 5. The Result GOD IS GLORIFIED

8
RELATIONSHIP WHEN PEOPLE ARE ESTEEMED,
RELATIONSHIP ARE REDEEMED Proverbs 27 1 - 21
Leader understand that people represent an
organizations most appreciable asset. No
resource is more valuable than people.
Therefore, people skills represent a leaders
most important attribute. This text presents
some fundamentals on relationships. It teaches
that if people are esteemed, relationships are
redeemed. Leaders can learn at least the
following principles from this chapter
  1. Dont Brag (vv 1,2) Leaders understand how
    little they get from self-promotion
  2. Dont envy (v. 4) Leaders sabotage themselves
    if their motive is to keep up with others.
  3. Be forthright (vv 5,6) Leaders dont fear
    confrontation, but speaks the truth in love.
  4. Dont forsake your roots (v 8) Leaders
    understand the power of relational heritage.
  5. Stay close (vv 9,10) Leaders work at
    maintaining relationships and meeting needs.
  6. Add value (v 7) Leaders sharpen those with whom
    they come in contact.
  7. Dont be moved by flattery (v 21) Stay humble
    or you will stumble.

SERVANTHOOD The Quality of a Leader Who
Lasts(Ecclesiastes 81 9)
  • Solomon reminds us about our relationship to
    leaders above us. We are to submit to them, not
    because the person deserves it, but because the
    office deserves it and God decrees it.
  • And what about leaders in Authority? Solomon
    also issues a warning. When leaders try to
    exercise authority without a servants heart,
    they eventually hurt themselves.
  • Consider what it says
  • Role of the follower
  • Submit to God-given authority
  • Trust God to accomplish His
  • purpose
  • 3. Dont quit or become divisive
  • Roles of the Leader
  • Exercise authority with wisdom
  • and caution.
  • Recognize no Human controls all
  • of life
  • Lead others by serving not
  • bossing them.

SERVANT LEADERSHIP MODELLED BY THE MESSIAHIsaiah
52 13 53 12
Beyond all question, JESUS CHRIST modeled the Law
of Sacrifice. He gave up for a time the riches
of heaven in order to fulfill his divinely
ordained role on earth.
Isaiah 53 describes THE EXCHANGED LIFE Jesus
took our sin, pain and failures so we could have
His righteousness, healing and victory Jesus
sacrificed greatly so that we might enjoy the
following gifts
HIS SACRIFICE OUR GAIN
1. Grief, Infirmities, insecurities 1.Security and Solid Emotions
2. Sins and Transgressions 2. Forgiveness from guilt
3. Sickness and diseases 3. Health and wholeness
4. Mental turmoil and pain 4. Peace of Mind
5. Weakness 5. His Strength
11
LEADERS WHO FAIL TO PRACTICE SERVANT LEADERSHIP
BECOME SELF SERVING Micah 73,4
Micah tells us a dim picture of Israel. People
couldnt be trusted, they lied, abuse and destroy
one another.
WHY????
POOR LEADERSHIP AT THE TOP
  • Leaders, rulers, princes and judges worked for
    kickbacks and bribes.
  • They schemed how they could beat the system and
    better their own status
  • They expected the people to serve them instead of
    them serving the people.

When leaders fail to practice servant leadership,
inevitably they become self-serving. They find a
cause to serve their own interests.
Self-service is a thorn to leadership
12
Samples of people who failed servant leadership
  • With a cause, Samson won many battles without
    one, he couldnt beat the temptation posed by
    Delilah.
  • With a cause, Saul conquered kingdom without
    one, he couldnt conquer even his own jealousy.
  • With a cause, David conquered Goliath, without
    one, he couldnt conquer his lust.
  • With cause, Elijah prayed down fire from heaven
    and beat 450 prophets of Baal without one, he
    ran in fear from solitary woman, Jezebel.
  • With a cause, Simon Peter preached at Pentecost
    and 3,000 people were saved without one, he
    denied he even belonged to the crowd that
    followed Jesus

13
Servanthood JESUS FACED DIFFICULTIES BY
PUTTING OTHERS FIRSTMatthew 141-4
  • Scenario
  • Jesus withdraws to be alone when he heard about
    the execution of John the Baptist his cousin who
    seems to be the only one who understand his
    mission.
  • He wanted to be alone to have some quiet time to
    grieve and gain perspective
  • But did not get the chance because when the
    multitude heard about His presence, they went to
    him
  • Jesus can say Cant you see I need sometime
    away from you all
  • Instead, HE responded by focusing on the needs of
    others.
  • He felt compassion for the crowd and began to
    heal their sick

ONE OF THE GREATEST REMEDIES FOR OUR OWN
SUFFERINGS IS SERVING OTHERS. SERVANT LEADERSHIP
BECOMES A SOLUTION FOR BOTH THE ONE SERVING AND
THE ONE BEING SERVED.
14
THE LAW OF SACRIFICE JESUS SIX STEPS OF
SERVANTHOODPhilippians 2 2- 11)
JESUS as THE ULTIMATE LEADER made ultimate
sacrifice HE left the glories of heaven and the
highest position in heaven not only to join
His creation, but to take on the lowest form of
the creation.
Jesus practice the Law of Sacrifice
Level One He gave up His divine form (v.6)
Level two He emptied Himself of any rights (v.7)
Level three He became a man (v.7)
Level four He became a servant (v.7)
Level five He was obedient to the point of death (v.8)
Level six He died a terrible kind of death (v.8)
15
SERVANTHOOD JESUS TEACHES THAT WE LEAD BY
SERVING AND SERVE BY LEADING(Matthew 2025-28)
  • Scenario
  • As Jesus makes His way towards Jerusalem to be
    executed, the mother of James and John request
    that her sons be given a preferred seat, next to
    Jesus in the kingdom of heaven.
  • Learning
  • Both disciples and their families have
    become preoccupied with
  • status rather than serving
  • Jesus style of leadership stands in stark
    contrast to the worlds,
  • Jesus teaches that the greatest must be the
    servant.
  • As responsibilities increase, rights
    decrease.

16
LEADERSHIP PYRAMID based on Jesus Principle of
Leadership
RIGHTS
OPPROTUNITIES AND RESPONSIBILITIES
RESPONSIBILITIES
Rights Decrease as you Climb toward leadership
In the church
Responsibilities INCREASE as you climb toward
Leadership in the church
OPTIONS AND RIGHTS
If this pyramid represents your life and the base
represents the beginning of your leadership
journey, your range of option is widest at the
beginning. The younger you are, the more
liberties you have with your time, vocabulary,
money, etc. But as you grow into leadership, you
deliberately surrender those rights.
SERVANTS PUSH FOR NO OPTIONS AND ASSUME NO RIGHT
17
SERVANT LEADERSHIP THE WAY UP IS DOWNMark 933
1016
SCENARIO When Jesus caught His disciples
arguing about who among them was the greatest,
they felt embarrassed but Jesus didnt rebuke
them for wanting to be great. He simply gave
them an unexpected formula
BE A SERVANT
In Mark 1013-16 His Disciples angered Him again
when they became more concerned with crowd
control rather than with HUMILITY and SERVICE.
CHILDREN presented the best example of the
required attitude for servant leaders
CHILDREN exhibits humility, wonder, honesty,
innocence, trust and dependence
18
LEADERSHIP LESSON FROM MARK 9 10
The greater the Leader the greater the servant
(Mark 935)
LEADERS include others when they serve (Mark 920)
Any service rendered will be rewarded (Mark
941)
Servant leaders must become CHILDLIKE (Mark
1013-16)
19
THE LEADERS JOBEphesians 412-16
Equipping is a tough job, much harder than
shepherding. LEADERS MUST EQUIP OTHERS FOR
MINISTRY
If leaders wish to equip their people, they must
give them certain gifts
  1. I must CARE for them (Communication, Affirmation,
    recognition and Examples)
  2. I must work on their Weaknesses, but work out
    their strength
  3. I must give them myself (time, energy and focus)
  4. I must give them ownership of the ministry
  5. I must become a resource person (atmosphere,
    training, support, tools)
  6. I must make expectations clear
  7. I must eliminate unnecessary burdens
  8. I must catch them doing something good, then
    reward them.
