That is interesting that you mentioned how Christ Himself was a servant...

It reminds me of the time when he washed the feet of his disciples... John 13:1-17

Where HE states how no Master is greater than his servant! I love that whole part of Scripture.... how humbling of our LORD! Amen!

And this Lord and King dwells in 'us' ! His spirit is ALIVE! Amen! He is now serving us in the most BEAUTIFUL WAY! Amen!

The unsaved is missing out of such a glorious thing.... we must serve the lost!

We are "saved to serve"! Thanks Gralan.

I was struck by this command given to us in Paul's letter to the Ephesians:
Be submitting yourselves to one another in reverence of Christ.

So not only do we submit to God, to Christ, to those in authority over us, to our spouses, but even to our fellow saints! It is part and parcel of Christ Jesus living in us, as He was not only Prophet, Priest and King, but also Servant.

As God knows our every need, that includes our need to continue being sanctified in this life. I'm glad God is busy conforming each and all of us into the image of The Son.



I'm not even near perfect, but I know someone who is.

Wow! sure enjoyed reading the comments below.

The one who gave us physical life and shed His blood to make it possible to have eternal life when we place our faith and trust in Him, surely, surely, knows our every need. Often, we look to ourselves or others for answers when we need to just lean on Jesus and our Heavenly Father.

Psalms 37:5 Commit thy way unto the LORD; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass.

I think that submission is one of THE HARDEST things a Christian has to do.
It is so unnatural, being worldly creatures who are told that we have to handle everything ourselves, you know?
There is one area where I can give it 100% to the Lord, and that is in the area of my health.
I am so aware that though it is up to me to take care of myself, of course, my health is in His Hands. Now I have to just keep giving all of the other facets of my life (and the lives of those I love) to Him. My Heavenly Father knows Best!

So many beautiful comments on this thread. I pray it has touched and Blessed your heart as it has mine. We often tell God we trust Him, then find ourselves running ahead of Him. God knows every strand of hair on our head, and He is ready to Bless us like only He can...But we must trust in Him completely. I often say, LET GO AND LET GOD! We wonder why God hasn't taken control, but have you completely turned it over? Are you wondering if God hears you? Have you taken yours hands off of it? God needs to know we trust Him to handle whatever this life brings. He is the only one capable of opening doors man has closed. We need to rely on His wisdom, God's door may not look like the one we want to walk through...Have faith and walk anyway! If we trust and believe, we will find His doors open up to Blessings our limited minds are unable to imagine.

I pray the awesome love of God continues to keep you!

we get so much more back than what we give. unfortunately there are a lot of people who are afraid to trust that God will provide and take care of us. He wants us to do His ministry here on earth, there is such great need

working hard every day to make healthy choices, to become the best version of me

Amen!

I believe that at times we stand in the way of God's blessings towards us. We are instructed to freely give as we have been freely given. Every resource we have - time, energy, physical abilities, knowledge of Him and His Word, a heart to feel love and compassion, etc. - is given to us by God. Even our income - we may work for a paycheck, but it is God who gave us that job, and the ability to work. When we don't share what we have with others, perhaps God views it as greed or as putting ourselves above others or as lack of faith that He will multiply what we have and what we give to others. The world calls it karma - what you do will come back to you. But I think that when we seek to bless others over our own selves, then God blesses us even more.

PRAISE THE LORD! It is our duty to share our gifts with others.... It is a blessing to share those gifts and it is so pleasing to God!

We MUST tell others about Jesus and what He has done for us! We MUST share all the goodness and mercy our LORD has done for us! Otherwise this wonderful thing we call Grace is wasted!

Thank you for this post and God bless..... Phylis

We are saved to serve.... Amen.

This is so true it almost begs the question doesn't it. Sometimes we can get so caught up in our own view of reality that we forget that we are to share the mind of Christ Jesus(vs.5 See Phlp2.1-16). Interestingly, Paul writes in verse 4: Each of you should look not only to your own interests, but also to the interests of others.

God does know our every need, just as BABYGURL45 testifies. And what is the mind of Christ Jesus our Great God and Savior? Why, to be a servant. Imagine being one of those, eh?

I'm so glad to be a part of folks here at Sparkpeople, even in this very team, who actually do seek to serve others as well as to take great delight in the LORD. Has God whispered in your ear about meeting someone else's needs today?

Thanks be to God.

Our sovereign Lord is our greatest provider. He sees and hears our needs, God is sitting on the throne lovingly watching over His children. Find comfort knowing God is able to supply us with everything...This world may place limits on you, but the awesome God we serve will not limit His goodness and favor. His storehouse overflows with Blessings, but we must have faith and continue seeking His face.

"But my God shall supply all your need according to His riches in glory by Christ Jesus." Philippians 4:19

"Be not ye therefore like unto them: for your Father knoweth what things ye have need of, even before ye ask Him." Matthew 6:8

"Delight thyself also in the LORD: and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart." Psalms 37:4

"Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls?" Luke 12:24

We would likely be surprised by the doors and windows God is willing to open in our lives, if only we would step out on faith. God knows our desires, He knows our innermost wants and needs. Surrender to Him and watch Him Bless you in ways you are unable to imagine! Don't worry and fret over tomorrow, cast your cares on Him because He cares for you. 1 Peter 5:7

Father God, I thank You for Your loving kindness. Thank You for sacrificing Your son, that I might have the right to the tree of life. Forgive me for not always patiently waiting for You to move in my life...Forgive me for making decisions without consulting You. I thank You for leading and guiding me as a loving parent. I trust You to provide for my needs, knowing Your will is greater than any plans I have. Your grace is more than sufficient, I praise You for Your current and future Blessings. In the awesome name of Jesus, AMEN!
