"Depending on the translation, at the very most, 'leader' is used only six times in the New Testament, while the word 'servant' can be found over two hundred times. We should be asking why those of us who have a calling to serve the church obsess so much more over leadership than servantship. Jesus said, 'I am among you as the one who serves" (Luke 22:27). If we honestly want to be like Jesus - if we honestly want to follow Jesus- we will pursue servantship rather than leadership. We will work to become the greatest servants we can be."
