The Greatest?

I will serve Thee!
Servant to all!


But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.
Matthew 23:11

And whosoever will be chief among you, let him be your servant: Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many. Matthew 20:27,28

It should be a privilege for us to serve others. Jesus says to His disciples: "If you desire to be the greatest in the Kingdom of God, be servant of all."
Many take this wrongly and think they should be served by all.

Becoming a Servant of the Most High, you're first going through the grindstone; in the melting pot; through the fire of purification.
Nothing of self should be visible; denying of the flesh must be #1. This is a lengthy process and if one rebels it will even take much longer. If one hasn't gone through this he/she cannot be a true servant as Jesus mentioned.

We must through much tribulation enter into the Kingdom of God.
Acts 14:22b

Once God has called a person into this capacity, most of the time this person knows God's calling and becomes willing to be tested and trained for the task that lies before him.

Through this "training", God's word has become the basis and foundation upon which one builds and through which one moves, bringing forth the truth and the will of God to them in need of His help. The servant has become a funnel of God's grace and mercy, since he/she is an empty vessel filled with the things of God, rather than with the things of this world.

For the Kingdom of God is not in word, but in power.
1 Corinthians 4:20

The Kingdom of God is action, progress, growth and advance in the name of Jesus and through the power of the Holy Spirit. There are no setbacks, turnbacks, black-outs, slack-offs or slowdowns.
The Kingdom of God is a forward force; "The Power of God."

It, (The Kingdom of God) is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took, and cast into his garden; and it grew, and waxed a great tree; and the fowls of the air lodged in the branches of it. Luke 13:19

This is the life we must be striving for, and has truly been my desire since the Lord showed me His mercy and forgiveness some 45 years ago.

He has NEVER changed and I have become a true proof of His faithfulness.
Glory to His awesome and glorious name. AMEN AND AMEN!!

Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven. Matthew 5:16

If you want to do something eternally worthwhile, aim in the correct direction; going God's way.

All Glory to the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost.
