Church of Nigeria 2019 Bible Study


Servant-leadership is both an attitude and a style of service. It stems from the

character Christ displayed and also commanded His followers to emulate ( John

13:2-17 ). He performed a task that was quite below His dignity. Servantleadership

is that humble disposition that drives a thorough bred Christian

man/woman to undertake responsibilities that are quite below his/her dignity,

for the good of the followers. In a world where even legitimate assignments

often appear burdensome to some leaders, thus tempting some to re-assign

them, servant-leadership calls us to condescension ( Phil.2:5-8 ) so we may reap

its attendant benefits, as will see in this study.


1. a. Explain in your own words and with practical examples

servant-leadership in Ref. John 13:2-17 & Phil.2:5-8 .

b. What traits do you consider as opposite of Servant leadership? Cf.

2Tim.3:2-4 .

c. What are the dangers of failing to develop servant leadership traits? 1

Tim.1:20; 2 Peter 2:12; Prov.16:18 .

2. Read Phil. 2:-8 . Pick out some qualities of servant -leadership from the text

and apply them to the context of your parish.

3. Servant leadership has great benefits both on earth and in heaven,

Phil.2:9-11; Heb.2:9 . Discuss.

4. How can Christian Discipleship help develop servant leadership in the

church today?


As our Master taught us-by example, and commanded us to

emulate, so we should live. Condescension is the key to Servant-leadership,

and it confers great benefits always. Therefore, crucify the flesh for a

servant-leadership attitude to emerge.


Only those who emerge from the crucible of thorough

Christian Discipleship can be servant leaders indeed .
