Q&A: Servant Leadership

Posted in:

Q: Whatever happened to servant leadership within the body of believers?
When a dispute arose among His disciples about who was to be the greatest, Christ told them that the leader must be like a servant (Luke 22:26), and offered Himself as an example: "I am among you as one who serves" (Luke 22:27, NRSV).

The God Who Speaks First

“Adam, where are you?”  (Genesis 3:9 NIV)

Some have interpreted this as a harsh call – the call of a parent whose child has wandered away in the shopping mall without permission.  Certainly, when this call from God to Adam (and Eve) in Genesis 3 occurs, there was trouble afoot.  Something had changed.
