Topic: Love Through Serving
Scripture: …Whoever desires to be great among you must be your servant.
Mark 10:43 (AMPC)
A servant is one who lives to benefit another, one who sacrifices for another’s joy or fulfillment. Sacrifice is the only status symbol in the kingdom of God. Jesus said servanthood makes a person great, and that no one can become great without it.
When it comes to serving others, we are often like children who don’t want to eat our vegetables. We like the things that taste good, but often ignore the things we really need to be healthy. When God began dealing with me about serving others it was hard, but it has freed me from myself. What a completely awesome delight it is to actually wake up in the morning and find God and others on my mind first.
Don’t let selfishness rule in your life. Be aggressive and do things for other people on purpose. As you do, you will find that you are a more joyful individual.
Prayer Starter: Lord Jesus, I want to walk in love with every person I encounter. Help me to be a blessing and serve others. In Jesus’ name, amen.
