“Blessed is that servant, whom his lord when he cometh shall find so doing.” Matthew 24:46
Do you have a servant’s heart? Servant means to serve; Serve means to help, assist, or attend to. Servants in God’s kingdom do the will of God with a humble attitude and with the desire to not only serve God but help others along their journey. God places a desire to help others in all of our hearts. You may be sensitive to help the homeless or the disabled person in their times of need. Maybe He calls you to help little children when their home life is less then perfect or take meals to the bereaved.
“God has made us what we are. In Christ Jesus, God made us to do good works, which God planned in advance for us to live our lives doing.” Ephesians 2:10
God will speak to you differently than He will speak to others. He reveals His heart personally to each person. When you listen to him every single day, you will learn what His will is for your ‘Servant’s Heart? Find whatever ignites your heart. The fire of your heart is the light of your path. Someone once said, “Missionaries are ordinary people in extraordinary circumstances expected to do numerous things with nothing much!” We all need to have a Missionary heart so that when Gods calls us to be His Hands, we will be ready with an earnest willingness to serve.
“For, brethren, ye have been called unto liberty; only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh, but by love serve one another. For all the law is fulfilled in one word, even this; Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” Galatians 5:13-14
To give and not to count the cost, takes a special attitude. It takes a servant spirit to stay, and to be faithful to the loving God who has called you to His work. A servant’s heart is a special attitude of willingness, trust, and perseverance. If you want to be like Jesus, you will need to be a servant with a good heart and when you get to Heaven you will hear…
“Well done, good and faithful servant.” Matthew 25:21
