SERVE ONE ANOTHER
…Christ Jesus, Who, being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be used to his own advantage;rather, he made himself nothing by taking the very natureof a servant, being made in human likeness. (Philippians 2:5-7)
The word servant comes from the word “doulos” in Greek. This word carries the meaning of “slave” which means someone who has no right even over himself, because he belongs to his master. Like Jesus who has emptied Himself to be of equal standing with men in order to serve the Lord’s will in Heaven, so shall we follow the example of Jesus.The obedience of Jesus and His submission to the Father’s will shall become our model as well in serving one another within the church, and also as the church of God. A church that is willing to follow God’s will and the Spirit’s leading is the true church.
Where are we going in the ministry of the coming years? I believe right now God is raising up the new & young generation in many parts of the world, doing revival upon revival. God is using young people and all of “His servants” to stand up and pray for the nations.
When we are willing to partner with the young generation and encourage them to take leadership positions, then God Himself will be the One raising up the new generation of Josephs, Daniels, Samuels, Esthers, and Deborahs, who will do mighty wonders for Him.
Let us continue to motivate our churches, wherever we serve, to always be in the frontline of God’s movement, to fulfill His ultimate will for the world which is to make disciples of all nations. All glory to God!
