The High Calling of Service

The word servant is used 624 times in the New Living translation.

It is used 928 times in the Amplified Bible.

It is used 826 times the CSB version.

It is used 815 in the NASB version.

And 885 in the KJ version.

The Lord has had me looking at various words the last few months – words like humble, humility, and service.

It takes humility to surrender our life to the Lord – to admit we even need a Savior.

Pride says, “I can do it on my own”.

Humility say, “I can’t do it without you. Come into my heart. Forgive me of my sins. I need you.”

We will never truly learn what it means to serve until we have surrendered.

Blessed (favored/anointed) are the poor in spirit, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Matthew 5:3
