I will discuss what the term servant leadership means, how servant leadership was introduced (both in secular and religious circles), and how this concept applies to my calling as a Christian. Servant leadership suggests that a leader’s main goal is to serve others. It has been used in the business world as a means to increase engagement between employees and aid in lack of ethics among those in the business community. Berger states, “Unfortunately, theory construction and evaluation have not been emphasized as the result of the rush to define and measure servant leadership” (2014, p. 149). He explains that in order to advance servant leadership into regular practice we must develop strong theory.
We cannot let our walk of faith be hindered by the world around us. Holiness is a process, not a final achievement that we can hang on our walls. I love hearing this as I felt shame because my life never felt worthy of holiness. Holiness is not the lack of sin, but rather regular repenting and a stable relationship with the Lord. God has even promised us as His children that we shall obtain holiness: “Holiness is not only expected; it is the promised birthright of every Christian” (14).
(Matthew 20:26–28). It is sad commentary in the world today that we have many leaders but very few servants. Many people want to “exercise authority,” but only a few want to serve. We should have an attitude to be like Christ’s in that we recognize others better than ourselves and do nothing out of vanity or selfishness. Rather, we must look out for the interests of another, and this means every leader is a
Leading with Soul is both an inspiring book and a guide for becoming a better leader. The book alternates between telling the story of a leader who is striving to find meaning in his work, and regular interludes, which include summaries, reflective questions, and information regarding various spiritual philosophies. I was exposed to dimensions of leadership I had never previously considered. This paper will reflect upon how Leading with Soul helped me understand the spiritual nature of leadership, identify strategies for nurturing the spiritual side of my own leadership, expand my capacity for assisting others during challenging times, and increase my compassion while working with difficult others.
Calvin suggests some tenets of his religious ideology that are universally applicable in the modern day protestant religious doctrine. This came to be referred to as being, ‘the limited atonement’. However, there were others which are still debated in Christian faith. The limited atonement ideology suggests that Christ’s death did take sway the sins of the world and all who so faithfully repent will have their sins washed away. However, only those who
In January, BTB will present a third study, “Life of the Kingdom Man.” In this video, Evans notes that a system of authority exists in God’s Kingdom. Christian men are under Christ’s authority and have a responsibility to fulfill. Doing that is the way to blessing for the Kingdom Man.
The songs “Amazing Grace” and “Go Down, Moses” are also excellent examples of gospel songs that share the good news of God. “Amazing Grace” has become popularized throughout the Christian religion and shares a message of hope and redemption. “Amazing Grace” speaks about being redeemed, because Jesus Christ washed away our sins when he died on the cross. Even if someone has sinned, the person can believe in God and be sent to heaven where he will prosper and be saved from damnation. There is a biblical story in which a man named Moses was given many opportunities by God to deliver the Israelites free from Pharaoh’s rule.
The King James Bible in Luke 12:48 confirms “But he that knew not, and did commit things worthy of stripes, shall be beaten with few stripes. For unto whomsoever much is given, of him shall be much required: and to whom men have committed much, of him they will ask the more” (King James Bible, Luke 12:48), The Bible confounds me at times. So, the bible shares that all are sinners only saved by grace. However, how may one arrive at grace, yet through salvation?
This movement teaches us that when we place our trust and faith in Christ, we are given an abundance of health and wealth. There is nothing more foreign to scripture than this type of teaching. In fact, the opposite is true, and Jesus makes it abundantly clear from today’s passage. In the opening verses, we see Jesus warning His disciples about the forthcoming persecution they will eventually face (vv.1-4a).
In her short story “A Good Man is Hard to Find,” Flannery O’Connor tackles the issue of grace, showing that no matter the person, everyone can attain and earn grace. The grandmother and the Misfit, though they appear to be quite different people, are both the same at the core: They are sinners in need of Christ. The Misfit and the grandmother are both capable of change and accepting God, but only the grandmother reaches this revelation before her death. Grace is one of the most important ideas in the Bible and Christianity. Grace is “the love of God shown to the unlovely; the peace of God given to the restless; the unmerited favor of God,” (Holcomb).
