Serving

Do you enjoy serving?  Do you enjoy being treated like a servant?  For me the answers are it depends and no.
How much do you enjoy serving?  Thoughts at DTTB.
It depends on what I am doing to serve.  Equipping others to study the Bible, absolutely, I love that.  Doing dishes or cleaning bathrooms, not so much.  I really do not like being treated like a servant.  Ordered around.  Told what to do, when.

You know the verse.  Mark 10:45, Christ’s example.  He said we should be like Him.  To be a servant first.  To be treated as one.  Paul explores this in excruciating detail in Philippians 2:3 – 9.  It is a passage I do not like very much.  Because it is crystal clear.  The application is that we, I am to have that same attitude and behavior.  On my own, not going to happen.  It takes Christ living through me.  It is a good thing that I have been joined to His death and my life is now His.

  1. I heard one man praying, "Jesus, I can't. Love Yourself through me. Obey Yourself through me. Glorify Yourself through me. And it would be possible to add, "Serve others through me."
