Topic: The True Disposition Of A Servant By Dr. Pastor Paul Enenche From Seeds of Destiny [Sunday September 24th 2017].
Scripture: But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: Philippians 2:7
THOUGHT FOR THE DAY: It is not where a man sits in life that matters but what sits inside him.
In my walk with God and in the privilege of serving Him, I have discovered that one of the causes of the decay in our generation is the craving for recognition.
Many people want to be accorded recognition for what they are. For instance, in occasions where such people are not given the front or high seat where all eyes can see them, they become annoyed, and they can do that even in church. They have forgotten to realise that it is not where a man sits in life that matters but what sits inside him.
A true servant will not behave like that; a true servant’s disposition is that of humility. A true servant is unassuming.
Sometime ago, I went to a big church and sat at the back row. While the pastor was preaching, he noticed my presence and sent an usher to bring me up to the altar where other ministers of the gospel were seated. I told the usher that I wanted to sit at the back row but the pastor refused and said that if I sat there, he would stop the message.
Beloved, I counsel you to live the kind of life David lived: a life that does not seek or struggle for reputation with men. When God saw these qualities in him, God concluded that he was the kind of man He was looking for.
Remember this: It is not where a man sits in life that matters but what sits inside him.
1. Always make humility your life principle.
2. Do not struggle to be known by men but strive to know God.
PRAYER: O LORD, help me to live like Jesus lived; not to struggle for reputation in Jesus’ Name.
