Serving Requires Humility

Paul writes, ‘You must have the same attitude that Jesus had. Though he was God, He did not think of equality with God as something to cling to. Instead, He gave up His divine privileges, took the position of a slave, humbled Himself in obedience to God and died a criminal’s death on the cross. Therefore, God elevated Him to the place of highest honour and gave Him the name above all other names…” Phil 2:5-9

Being a celebrity often means we expect others to serve us, but being a Christ follower means we are called to serve others. There’s a big difference, isn’t there? Christ modeled servanthood before His disciples. On the social totem pole, the lowest servant in the house washed feet. Try to picture God washing the feet of common fishermen, then saying, “As I have served you, now go and serve one another!”

Jesus had settled three big issues: 1) He knew Who sent Him. 2) He knew Who sustained Him. 3) He knew Who was going to reward Him. Therefore, He was liberated from the fear of people, the fear of failure and the fear of rejection. J. L. Massed said it so well, “Service can never become slavery to the one who loves.”

There is always the tendency for us to get distracted in life. Our eyes will go off course when we are distracted and we lose focus. The Christian life is a walk with Jesus as our focus but the cares of this life and deceitfulness of riches makes us take our eyes off Jesus. We
