A Servant’s Heart.

I am Your servant; give me understanding [the ability to learn and a teachable heart] Psalm 119:125 Holy Bible Amplified Version

The wise servant knows what is expected of him or her by the King.

The only way to achieve this is by discernment and the only way to attain that is listening to the Kings instructions. Just as an earthly king will have various and different duties for the servant each day so too does our Heavenly King. That is why we must ask Him every day to provide us with the proper instructions throughout the day.

There is a manner of conduct that is required of the Kings servant and the only manner in which the servant can know this and incorporate it into his daily life is with instruction and daily practice from the King.

It is enough for the disciple to be like his teacher, and the bond servant like his master. Matthew 10:25 Holy Bible Amplified Version

We always emulate that which we admire.

So many imitate their favourite musician by talking like they do, dressing like they do and behaving like they do (God help us with the role models in the music, TV and movie industry today).

So too must we Christians emulate our Heavenly Master as His bond servants.

Bond servants are those who serve another of their own free will. That is the only way to become a servant of Christ is by our own free will. He is too gracious to force anything on us.

The more we serve and emulate Him in our daily life the more it will be ingrained into our subconscious to serve Him and behave like Him in an appropriate manner which is pleasing unto Him without even thinking about it.

“The true character of ministry is a servant’s heart.” Author Unknown

Prayer: Thank you Jehovah Helech ‘Olam (The Lord our King Forever) for the awesome privilege of being Your humble obedient servant. I extol Thee in the name of the King of Kings Jesus Christ. Amen.

May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.

After faithfully serving the Lord in China for ten years as a teacher I have been called home to care for my aged mother who has numerous disabilities. As well I regularly do volunteer work visiting seniors in a seniors home. I love being in nature. I say the closer we get to nature the more we see Jehovah. We are blessed in this area with many amazing, easy to ride bicycle trails on old railroad lines that takes us all over Southern Ontario.
