A Servant of Christ

Phil 1:1
Paul and Timothy the servants of Jesus Christ, to all the saints in Christ Jesus which are at Philippi with the bishops and deacons.

I will again be short tonight. I was just sitting here and thinking about what Paul started some of his letters out with. He said he was a servant of Jesus Christ. Paul probably the greatest Christian in the Bible said this. I was thinking are we really servants of Christ. I was just thinking for a person to be a servant they must have a greater love for the Master than anything else in this world. Do we love Jesus more than any other. The bible says we either serve God, or mammon. Just a couple of thoughts on being a servant.
I. We must be Humble.
If there is one thing that I believe the Lord wants us to do in our lives that is is humble ourselves. To Many people are prideful. The only way God can use us is when we are humble. When we enter the throne room of Grace we must come humbly before the throne. Are you humble?

II. We must be Honoring.
We must bring honor and glory to our Savior in our daily lives. The bible tells us Whether therfore we eat or drink or whatsoever we do. do all to the Glory of God.
I. We must honor him in our habits.
II. We must honor him in our homes
III. We must honor him in our hearts.

III. We must be Helpful
Wherever you see Jesus he is trying to help people. There are many people crying out for help tonight. A servant helps others.
Souls Cry out for Help.
People are dying every second and meeting God in the judgment.
Sliders Cry Out for Help.
The backslider most of the time is crying out for Help. They may like living in the sin for a season but I believe they are always looking for away back to God.
Saints Cry Out for Help.
We need one another in the Body of Christ. We all need people that will rejoice with us, cry with us, and just be there for us. I believe this is being a servant.

Are we a servant tonight. After you read this really think about it. Because remember what Jesus said. Well done thou good and faithful servant. The greatest words we can hear when we get to heaven. God bless you till next time.
