What is the Leadership Style of Jesus?

In our society today we define leadership as Position, Power and Fame and most people want to be on leadership position so that people will respect them and serve them.

In reality ganun ang nangyayari pag ikaw ang nasa tuktok lahat ng favor nasayo.

Kaya nga gustong gusto ko yung kanta ni bamboo na "Habang may tatsulok at sila ang nasa tuktok Di matatapos itong gulo"

Pero kung babaliktarin naten yung tatsulok alam mo ba na eto yung best leadership style!

Eto yung mga leader na uunahin muna yung mga nasa baba ng society, a leader that are selfless and always think of others first.

This is the leadership style of Jesus and it was demonstrated when He wash the feet of His apostles

Here is the Verse from John 13:1-17

It was just before the Passover Festival. Jesus knew that the hour had come for him to leave this world and go to the Father. Having loved his own who were in the world, he loved them to the end.

The evening meal was in progress, and the devil had already prompted Judas, the son of Simon Iscariot, to betray Jesus. Jesus knew that the Father had put all things under his power, and that he had come from God and was returning to God; so he got up from the meal, took off his outer clothing, and wrapped a towel around his waist. After that, he poured water into a basin and began to wash his disciples’ feet, drying them with the towel that was wrapped around him.

He came to Simon Peter, who said to him, “Lord, are you going to wash my feet?”

Jesus replied, “You do not realize now what I am doing, but later you will understand.”

“No,” said Peter, “you shall never wash my feet.”

Jesus answered, “Unless I wash you, you have no part with me.”

“Then, Lord,” Simon Peter replied, “not just my feet but my hands and my head as well!”

Jesus answered, “Those who have had a bath need only to wash their feet; their whole body is clean. And you are clean, though not every one of you.” For he knew who was going to betray him, and that was why he said not every one was clean.

When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. Very truly I tell you, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.

Sobrang gulat na gulat talaga yung mga apostle nung ginawa yun ni Jesus sa kanila.

Jesus is their king, their messiah and their savior tapos hinugasan yung mga paa nila at pinag-sisilbihan sila kaya sobrang nagulantang talaga sila sa nakita nila.

They are so humbled by that act from Jesus and He show them the true leadership style and to do the same thing on other people that they will serve.

Jesus is not just a great teacher, He also walk His talk!

All of His life He show us to be meek and humble because it is the only way to gain power in the Kingdom of God.

“For those who exalt themselves will be humbled, and those who humble themselves will be exalted.” Matthew 23:12

You know even other religious leader and other denomination respect Jesus so much and they were impress by His teachings, kahit na hindi sila Christian they believe in the teaching of Jesus like Gandhi , medyo patama nga lang sateng mga Christian tong quotes na to (^_^)

Here are some views of Jesus on other religion and denomination.

If you're a leader of a company now or in an organization or in business or in your community or church and in your family, pero parang hindi sila sumusunod sayo, sumunod man parang pilit pa at parang labag pa sa loob nila yung pinapagawa mo maybe you become a manager to them not a leader.

What do I mean by that? A manager manage people and they give direct order to people to follow them they use their position and their title, you know according to John Maxwell it is the lowest style of leadership by using your position and title that's why you have a hard time to influence your people.

But the leadership of Jesus is radical and it is the highest form of leadership because Jesus did not even use His title, position or even power when He live here on earth He is just an ordinary guy, he is poor, anak nga sya ng carpenter di ba?

Why People follow Him? They follow him because they sense His authority and conviction, they feel the sincerity of Jesus, naramdaman nila yung concern ni Jesus sa kanila, nakaradam sila ng unconditional love, nakaramdam sila ng acceptance He did not even condemn people even if they are a sinner, kaya nga nakilala si Jesus as "Friend of the sinner”.

Naramdaman nila yung authenticity ni Jesus and by that people follow Him and trust Him, samantalang yung mga Pharisees na sobrang alam na alam ang religion and they are also a bible scholar at matatalinong tao ay nadaig pa sila ni Jesus.

Why? kase self-righteous sila and people are so intimidated by them because they condemn people so much , feeling nila sila lang ang Holy at sila lang ang mahal ni Lord (^_^)

According to John Maxwell "people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care"

This is the leadership of Jesus and if you want to influence your family and your organization imitate this kind of Leadership.

"The person who is greatest among you must be your servant." Matthew 23:11

To become a Radical Leader you must be a leader that love and trust His people, a leader that lead himself, a leader that are selfless, a leader that sacrifice himself for his people, a leader that accept his responsibility, a leader that are so meek and humble, a leader that walk his talk, a leader who accept his failure and most importantly a leader that lead you closer to Jesus.

This is the best leadership style in the world!

I believe with all my heart if a leader of a country follow this leadership style that country will prosper!

I just want to share this very practical tips of John Maxwell in choosing the right leader (^_^)
