It is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your [willing and humble] slave Matthew 20:26-27 Holy Bible Amplified Version
Jesus Christ is not just our Savior and best friend but He is also our King. That means we are His free will servants (we serve Him because we love Him).
How are we to serve this Heavenly King?
The only way to serve Christ is by serving others.
In all we do we are to do so with being servant unto Christ to bring Him glory.
It is not done to bring glory to ourselves (The look at me, look at me syndrome. Am I not so holy attitude or am the I not so good attitude.). As such we place others above ourselves.
So if you are a rich CEO and you are in a restaurant do not look down on the server or anyone else working there but treat them with respect. If you are a server serve the clientele as if you were serving Christ. We are to do everything to the best of our abilities no matter whether we are getting paid for it or not.
Because we are Christs servants we are confident in who we are in Christ and this leaves us free of jealousy of co-workers, of the social status trap, the culture trap or anything else in the material world.
“A Christian man is the most free lord of all, and subject to none; a Christian man is the most dutiful servant of all, and subject to everyone.”Martin Luther
Prayer: Thank you Jesus Hamelech ( Jesus my Lord King ) for blessing me with freeing from the slavery of the world and for blessing me with the immense honour of being Your free will servant. I exalt You in You magnificent name. Amen
May the gentle assurance of Jesus’ sweet love encompass you today and every day.
