GREATNESS THROUGH SERVICE
Matthew 20:26-28( Nee King James Version), Yet it shall not be so among you; but WHOEVER DESIRES to BECOME GREAT among you, let him BE your SERVANT. And WHOEVER desires to be FIRST among you, let him BE your SLAVE— just as the Son of Man did NOT come to be served, but TO SERVE, and to GIVE His LIFE a ransom for many.”
As a principle in the Kingdom of God, it is impossible to just wake up and be at the top. The Kingdom system dictates that one must learn to serve and to give themselves in service to God and to others before they can rise up the ranks even in the Spiritual realm.
In a society that wants everything instant then it becomes very difficult for people to willingly go through the process. Key to note is that service does not make you any less or in anyway insinuate that you are not gifted. HOWEVER it is in the Kingdom system that as you are in service then you grow in greatness. Embrace this mindset!
It is important to learn this from our Savior Jesus Christ: He laid down His life to serve us and this did not in any way reduce His nature of being God BUT rather assured Him of the Highest (and ALL Most Powerful) Name.
Beloved, allow your self to be wholly given to service; find something to do in God’s House . Service is your way of growing to greatness in ministry. Purpose today to grow to greatness by stepping out to serve others.
For example, Do it by cleaning and preparing the sanctuary, serving in the media or set up ministry. Serve your way to Greatness beloved!
Philippians 02:05-09(New International Version) ,In your relationships with one another, HAVE the SAME MINDSET as Christ Jesus: Who, being in Very Nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to His Own advantage; rather, He made Himself nothing by taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human Likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, He humbled Himself by becoming obedient to death— even death on a cross! Therefore God exalted Him to the highest place and gave Him the Name that is above every Name.
Service does not make you any less or in anyway insinuate that you are not gifted, however it is in the Kingdom system that as you are in service then you grow in greatness.
