Servants of Christ

This, then, is how you ought to regard us: as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the mysteries God has revealed. 1 Corinthians 4:1
When people hear the word servant, our human pride gets all upset. But the word servant in the Bible also means “minister” as in Numbers 11:28 Joshua was a servant for Moses.
However as Jesus said Nobody can serve two masters, so your either serving God or serving Satan, there is no in between. Jesus willingly laid down his life for us, won’t you be willing to do the same for him?
Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful. I care very little if I am judged by you or by any human court; indeed, I do not even judge myself. 1 Corinthians 4:2-3
We answer to a higher authority than man. Follow the Laws of God and not the Laws Man has deemed acceptable. Judgement is also not ours. Jesus has appointed the authority by God as King of Kings. He is worthy to judge we are not.
My conscience is clear, but that does not make me innocent. It is the Lord who judges me. 1 Corinthians 4:4
Are you prepared to stand before the Lord on Judgement day? If not repent and ask for mercy, for the Blood of Jesus redeems us. We are all sinners and have fallen short to the Glory of God, renew yourself with Jesus.
Therefore judge nothing before the appointed time; wait until the Lord comes. He will bring to light what is hidden in darkness and will expose the motives of the heart. At that time each will receive their praise from God. 1 Corinthians 4:5
Jesus came to save the world and not condemn it, we must live like Christ and be merciful and loving like him. The Lord knows the evil of this world and he will judge accordingly in due time. It’s our job to lead people to Christ, not condemn them.
What will it take for you to serve Jesus? Does he need to die for you? Does he need to wash your feet? Does he need to forgive you? He has done all this and more, serve the Lord and not this world in Jesus Name Amen

    good words – it all started when satan suggested to eve that they maybe they did have more options – that God wouldn’t really kill them – and that is still one of the biggest lies hounding the world today!
