Make Me A Servant

Followers of Jesus remember only the needs of others and the example of Jesus humble service. No task is is beneath those who emulate the Messiah. No person is disqualified from receiving mercy and grace. There is no level too low for us to bend our knees in service.

Our amazing God has overwhelmed us with His humility. The creator of the universe became our servant, took on human form and suffered in our place. He submitted to us, and therefore we can do no less than submit ourselves to Him, and to make ourselves available to serve anyone in our path.

God's plan was to change the world with love. The love He showed us was extravagant. It wasn't based on merit. Those who deserve love the least are the very one's who need it the most. Therefore, our calling is to make ourselves low, humble ourselves, and repeat the question that Jesus Himself asked more than any other - "What would you have me to do for you?"

Freely we have received immeasurable grace from His hand. Freely we are compelled to give love and grace without measure.

God, please help us to be conduits of your love to others in this world who have never seen or experienced the quality of love you have shown to us.

Make us like you - a servant of all.

"Make Me a Servant"

by Kelly Williard

Make me a servant

Humble and meek

LORD let me lift up those who are weak

And may the prayer of my heart

Always be

Make me a servant

Make me a servant

Make me a servant, today.

*See Philipians 2
