The leaders in this world are driven by the desire for power, especially over people or things, profit. Even religion and philanthropy become the means to obtain such power. The Bible, however, establishes a servant leadership, which does not seek power over people, and urges to gather treasures in heaven, renouncing power over material things. So what is the desire for power that motivates biblical leadership? Paul spoke to the Philippians about it: “But whatever were gains to me I now consider loss for the sake of Christ” Phil 3:7. The apostle wanted to win Christ in order to obtain the power that raised him and thus also achieve resurrection, that is, eternal life. Abandon power over people, reject power over things. Seek Christ's power for resurrection and new life. This is biblical leadership.
