Crave for power has and still is the drive behind wars around the world, not to mention the very reason why we all are in this situation today. Adam and Eve’s crave to become God like in wisdom and power.
“But it must not be like that among you. On the contrary, whoever is greatest, and whoever leads, like the one serving. For who is greater, the one at the table or the one serving? Isn’t it the one at the table? But I am among you as the One who serves.” These are the words of the greatest leader the world will ever see. Through these words, Jesus revolutionised thousands of years of human leadership thinking.
What the world perceives as weakness, God gives it a place of prominence in His kingdom as He promises that whoever will be a servant of all, will be dining at His table in His Kingdom (Luke 22:30).
Do you want to be part of the Lord’s inner circle in the Kingdom of heaven? Than serve the Lord and others with all your heart. If you are a church goer and not active in ministry, make a commitment today and say, yes Lord I want to serve you. Go to your pastor and ask him, what can I do to help in the Church? bless others and start being faithful in the little and you will tap in the Lord’s abundance.
Only leaders with a servant heart and attitude can be truly used and blessed by God, are you one of them?
