When most hear the word servant the initial thought is "less than" "working for" and/or "slave". The word servant is looked upon as negative. Let me encourage you, today. If you are a servant to God and submissive to his will, you will walk as Jesus walked. It is life-changing to be a servant. Being a servant demonstrates humility, character, and love. Serving is not a sign of weakness but of strength. When you feed the hungry, clothe the naked, visit the sick, and those incarcerated, (Matthew 25: 35-40) and/or whatever you are led to do by the Holy Spirit, you are ultimately serving God. God is love and your love in action, serving others, is serving your Father. So, who are you serving?
Prayer: Father God in heaven you are God Almighty! Thank you for providing opportunities to serve You by being a servant to your people. Lead us and guide us that you may get all the glory and honor you deserve. Teach us to walk humbly, love swiftly, and serve graciously. We give you glory! In Jesus name, Amen.
Scripture: The greatest among you must be a servant. Matthew 23:11 NLT
Prayer gives you power to walk on purpose
