Topic: What Real Servanthood Is [Friday September 22, 2017]
Scripture: For David, after he had served his own generation by the will of God, fell on sleep, and was laid unto his fathers, and saw corruption. Acts 13:36.
Thought For The Day: A servant is someone who is not struggling for limelight or the attention of men.
In the previous days, we have been looking at qualities that attract the anointing to a person’s life using the life of David as a case study.
We saw that servanthood attracts the anointing on a person’s life. It was established that the anointing does not flow on the heads of masters.
The question to ask is, what is servanthood?
Servanthood means a life given to service; it is a life of absolute humility. It is not possible to be a proud person and claim to be a servant at the same time.
Secondly, servanthood means a life that does not struggle for visibility and popularity; a servant is someone who is not struggling for limelight or the attention of men.
All the brothers of David may have struggled for people’s attention but David was at the background where nobody could easily see him; nobody knew much about his existence.
Furthermore, servanthood means being satisfied with contributing to the enhancement of the lives of people around you; it is being satisfied with solution provision.
Beloved, make up your mind to serve in order to attract the anointing.
Remember this: A servant is someone who is not struggling for limelight or the attention of men.
- Ask God for the impartation of the spirit of humility.
Ask God to deal with every trace of pride in your life that will rob you of service.
Practice servant-hood by serving the people around you.
Prayer: O LORD, clothe me with the garment of humility and service in Jesus’ Name.
