When Jesus was on Earth He didn’t come to be served, He came to serve!
Jesus had compassion to help people, no matter what their situations or circumstances were, and He was always willing and wanting to help anyone in need.
By His example, we discover the true meaning in life; in “Serving others.”
To develop a servant’s heart, you must begin by being in right alignment with God. Recognizing who you are in relationship to who He is, exposes any pride that you may have, and yet at the same time, the more you recognize who you are in relationship to Him, the more you embrace humility.
Having a servant’s heart doesn’t mean that you allow yourself to be treated poorly, it simply means that you desire the well-being of others before yourself.
Never be afraid that there isn’t a place for you in the body of Christ!
If you have a heart to serve, God has a place for you!
“Do nothing from rivalry or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others. Have this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus.”
God has a purpose for your life, and the best way to see it come about is to have the heart of a servant! One of the hardest things to do is to be willing to serve someone who doesn’t serve it!
