Thinking Like a Servant

January 2, 2005

Philippians 2: 1—11 

To be a servant I must think like a servant 

(Phil 2:7 NIV) but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a servant, being made in human likeness. 

            You can’t be a servant if you’re full of yourself. It’s only when we forget ourselves that we do the things that deserve to be remembered.

Real servants think like stewards, not owners. They remember God owns it ALL. In the bible, a steward was a servant entrusted to manage an estate. The bible says in 1 Corinthians 4:2   Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful. Real servants think about their own responsibilities not what other servants are doing. They don’t compare, criticize, or compete with each other servant or ministries. They’re to busy doing the work God has given them. Real servants don’t complain of unfairness, don’t have pity-party, and don’t resent those not serving. They just trust God and keep serving. One of the most profound examples of serving from a secure self-image is Jesus washing the feet of His disciples. Real servants think of ministry as an opportunity, not an obligation. They enjoy helping people, meeting needs, and doing ministry. (Psalm 100:2 NIV)   Worship the LORD with gladness; come before him with joyful songs. God will use you if you’ll begin to act and think like a servant.
