“…whoever desires to be first among you, let him be your slave – just as the Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many…”

Matthew 20: 27-28 (NKJV)

Do you know that true Christianity is all about service to God, His Kingdom and to humanity? But sadly that is not the case today. Many have chosen to live the life of executive Christianity. They are not willing to do anything or take any responsibility in the house of God or be useful to God and His kingdom. They prefer to come to church, listen to the word of God and go back home. They are not interested in joining any department or serving in the house of God at all. In most cases when you talk about it, they proudly say I just want to be a member, I don’t want to take any responsibility, but the question is, is that how God wants it? Certainly not! God wants us to be useful and be responsible in His house. He wants us to serve and not to be served because in service comes the blessings. And that is the fact. As long as a Christian is not willing to take up any responsibility in the house of God, he is making himself of no relevance to God and His kingdom, thus he is just a liability to the kingdom. Beloved, you have to make up your mind not to be this way. You’ve got to understand that you have a role to play in the body of Christ. There is a purpose to fulfill, hence you were saved. Look for that purpose and start fulfilling your role. Until and unless you start fulfilling a role in the body of Christ, you can live a fulfilled life. This is something I discovered many years ago. There is a certain fulfillment you will not get unless you are actively involved in the word of the ministry and changing lives.

So I implore you today to become a serving Christian. Be the man serving not the one that is being served. Our Lord Jesus Christ said about Himself, that “the Son of man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many…” Matthew 20: 27-28 (NKJV). In that statement, He gave a perfect description of who a Christian is and what Christianity is all about. The earlier you serving the better for you. Amazingly, if you truly want to walk in the blessings of service, you have to serve and be a plus to the kingdom of God and to your sphere of contact. Let them see Jesus in you. Praise God!
