Godly Servanthood...

John 13:13-16
"Ye call me Master and Lord: and ye say well; for so I am. If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another's feet. For I have given you an example, that ye should do as I have done to you. Verily, verily, I say unto you, The servant is not greater than his lord; neither he that is sent greater than he that sent him."

When you hear the word "servant," does anybody immediately spring to mind? Perhaps you recall an extraordinarily helpful salesman or that wonderful woman at church who always takes care of every detail.

Godly servants are all around us, but sadly, we frequently take them for granted. This is a tragedy we need to correct -- not only for their sakes, but for our own. You see, I firmly believe that the faithful service of righteous men and women will bring untold blessings to those whom they serve.

For instance, Joseph's story reveals a consistent thread: Wherever he was, the people he served prospered. Potiphar was certainly not a God-fearing man, yet even he recognized that prosperity came to him because of his slave. A second Old Testament illustration is Daniel, whose service to Babylonian kings included interpreting visions (Dan. 2, 4, 5).

In both examples, the leaders were blessed by their servants' actions. More than that, they came away with an awareness of the living God. And they also participated in the young men's success by offering them increased responsibilities and greater opportunities to serve (Gen. 39:1-6; Dan. 2:46-48; 5:29).

Find the people in your life who have the gift of godly service. Spend time with them, serving and working together for God's glory. If you turn your nose up at someone doing "servant's work," you'll only cut yourself off from a relationship that could literally change your life. Instead, run toward these people, stand beside them, and ask, "How can I participate in your service?"

But if you have not cleansed yourself of your past,
Be assured of having tea with the devil in HELL"
