Leader Man vs. Servant Leader

Post  inthelight on 20/02/10, 06:11 pm

Matthew 20:25 Jesus called them together and said, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them, and their high officials exercise authority over them. 26Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, 27and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— 28just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Brant Hanson distinguishes two different kinds of leaders: The LeaderMan vs. The Servant Leader


LeaderMan: Wants a platform on which to say something
Servant Leader: Has something to say

LeaderMan: You almost feel you know his family, because he’s your Leader
Servant Leader: You allow him to influence you, because you know his family

LeaderMan: Wants you to know he’s a Leader
Servant Leader: You’re not sure he knows he’s a leader

LeaderMan: Loves the idea of the Gospel, and the idea of The Church
Servant Leader: Loves God and the actual individual people God brings across his path

LeaderMan: Helps you find where God is leading you in his organization
Servant Leader: Helps you find where God is leading you

LeaderMan: Resents “sheep stealing”
Servant Leader: Doesn’t get the “stealing” part, since he doesn’t own anyone to begin with

LeaderMan: Wants the right people on the bus
Servant Leader: Wants to find the right bus for you, and sit next to you on it

LeaderMan: A visionary who knows what the future looks like
Servant Leader: Knows what your kitchen looks like

LeaderMan: If it’s worth doing, it worth doing with excellence
Servant Leader: Not exactly sure how to even calculate “worth doing”

LeaderMan: Impressed by success and successful people
Servant Leader: Impressed by faithfulness

LeaderMan: Reveals sins of his past
Servant Leader: Reveals sins of his present

LeaderMan: Gives you things to do
Servant Leader: Gives you freedom

LeaderMan: Leads because of official position
Servant Leader: Leads in spite of position

LeaderMan: Deep down, threatened by other Leaders
Servant Leader: Has nothing to lose

Here are some more from the book 'Getting to Know the Real Jesus' (I haven't read the book)

The Religious Jesus is Law. The Real Jesus is Love.
The Religious Jesus brings guilt. The Real Jesus brings grace.
The Religious Jesus brings condemnation. The Real Jesus brings compassion.
The Religious Jesus hurts people. The Real Jesus heals people.
The Religious Jesus uses people to build the church,The Real Jesus uses the church to build people.
