Text: Matthew 20: 28. Even as the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many.

 

Life is governed by principles.
Applying the wrong principle for the desired project will yield to nothing.
Operating successfully in both the physical and spiritual realm demands the right principle.
In as much as the world, most times contradict the spiritual principle of operation, yet we must be mindful of where we belong.
A perfect spiritual walk with the Lord will deliver all your expectations in your hands.

 

Talking about an increase and growth in wealth, the world gives us a principle of saving alone.
But God’s word tells us further, to also give the poor and needy and by so doing, we would store up great wealth.
As the world principle of attaining a great position in life is hard work, God’s principle tells us in addition to hard work, to be humble and take up the life of a little child.
In Jesus’ word, He said, “the greatest amongst You, is the least amongst you”. Mark 9:35.

 

Jesus demonstrated this act a lot of times as we see Him testifying that He had come to serve and not to be served. Matthew 20:28.
As Jesus washed and kissed His disciples’ feet, it revealed a great height of humility and service. John 13:1-17.
If Jesus the son of God would serve us in such a manner, why are we finding it difficult to let go of our pride and take up the similitude of Christ?
A man can be great, yes, but the greatest is the least of all, the servant of all.
Greatness is God’s reward for faithfulness, diligence, service, commitment, discipline, and humility.

A heart of simplicity, service, and humility attract God’s attention to change your life.
God expects us, to take up the position of a servanthood, irrespective of our achievement and qualifications.
Until we take the similitude of a servant and learn to be at other people’s service, we cannot attract the fullness of God’s blessing.
Your academic qualifications, your head knowledge alone, will not get you a place at Jesus’ right hand as the mother of Zebedee’s children thought. Matthew 20:20-21.
A true knowledge of Christ in the life of a man is best seen not in words but in attitudes.
The Bible tells us how they saw the boldness of Peter and John and perceived they had been with Jesus.
Acts 4: 13. Now when they saw the boldness of Peter and John, and perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant men, they marvelled; and they took knowledge of them, that they had been with Jesus.
A man that sits at the right hand of Jesus, is that man who has taken up the similitude of a child and a servant.

 

God wants us to diligently serve men and the church.
You can serve at your capacity.
Contributing monetarily to God’s work is a service unto God.
It’s a service that says, Lord, I trust you to give back to your work that you have blessed me with.
Partaking in your local church activities and the workforce is a service unto God.
You can clean the church, no service rendered to God is too big or small.
Submit yourself under the mighty hands of God and render quality services to the Glory of His Holy name.
