True Servants

“Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Holy Spirit who is in you, whom you have from God, and you are not your own?”
—1 Corinthians 6:19

Every now and then I’ll see one of those bumper stickers that says, God is my copilot. It sounds nice, but the truth is that God doesn’t want to be your copilot or mine. He doesn’t even want us in the cockpit. God wants to be in control.


 

General Michael Flynn defense fund Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn. 


He is the Shepherd, and we are the sheep. He is the Potter, and we are the clay. He is the Master, and we are the servants. We are the property of Jesus Christ, and we became that when we put our faith in Him. As 1 Corinthians tells us, “For you were bought at a price; therefore glorify God in your body and in your spirit, which are God’s” (6:20).

A servant owns little to nothing. As God’s servants, we need to realize that everything we have is on loan from Him: our lives, our health, our career, our ministry, our possessions, our children, our future . . . it all belongs to God.

Our objective isn’t to find out how God can bless our dreams, ambitions, and goals. Rather, it’s to find His goal, His purpose, and align ourselves with it. Why? Because we are His servants.

We like the fringe benefits, if you will, of being followers of Jesus. But what about the fact that we are His servants?

Jesus told a parable in Luke 17 about servants who were given a task to fulfill. At the end of the story He said, “So likewise you, when you have done all those things which you are commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants. We have done what was our duty to do’” (verse 10).

True servants of Jesus want to do what God wants them to do. They are just doing their duty as servants of the Lord.
