It never ceases to amaze me how some business managers just don't get the fact that in order to secure your business they do need to deliver service. When you try to get them to accommodate you with a special request it is just too much work for them. Unfortunately for people like that, they just won't get my business.
That begs the question, is the Church a service organization? I absolutely believe we are. We need to serve people that are hurt and broken in order to lead them to a place where they can accept Christ as Saviour.
Jesus demonstrated this principle and taught us that in order to be a leader we must be willing to serve the people we wish to lead. He washed His disciples feet and ministered to them time and time again.
Above all else, Christ demonstrated service to the body of Christ when He gave up His life as a sacrifice for our sin. From this example we need to learn that in order to grow in our leadership skills we need to first serve the body of Christ and minister to those whom God places in our path.
