Serve as Jesus Served
Put on tender
mercies, kindness, humility, meekness, longsuffering . . . Colossians
If you want to know exactly how to serve as Jesus served, all you have
to do is look
at the passage of Scripture found in Philippians 2:6-8.
1. He made himself of no reputation
2. He took the form of a bondservant
3. He came in the likeness of man
5. He became obedient to the point of death . .
. . . .
6. even the death of the cross
Jesus understood something that we, as Christians,
ought to take to heart regarding service to our Lord: When God is given
all the glory and honor and we remain hidden in the background, more
lives are led to Christ; and the kingdom of heaven is enriched and enlarged.
The One who deserved unending recognition for what He did never even
asked for a "thank you." He simply wanted people to love His Father
and accept His forgiveness. Strive to serve like Jesus: with meekness,
humility, and love.
