Service

Just as Christ came not to be served, but to serve, so we also should seek to serve others in real and practical ways. Christian service isn’t ultimately about a to-do list, but an attitude, stance, posture. The apostle Paul opened most of his letters with these words, “Paul, a bond-servant of Christ.” The Greek word he used, was that of the lowest servant. This meant that for Paul, everybody was above him- children, slaves, barbarians. He was ready and eager to serve because he knew he had been served by Christ. Paul’s posture is much-needed today, as we seek to become more like Jesus, the true servant of all.
