Let a man regard us in this manner, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. 1 Corinthians 4:1
What do you want to be when you grow up? Often when were young we have ambitious answers, however some people may have filled those ambitions, while others went off into a different direction. Regardless nobody says when they grow up they want to be a servant. This seems absurd, we want to life ourselves as high as we can possibly go
However as a Christian, you are a servant of Jesus Christ. Or atleast your supposed to be, this is what true Christianity is about, self denial. Skeptics will say, “Its easy to be a Christian”, “Just say a few lines and your in” this is false, true Christianity is a transformation not a slogan
In this case, moreover, it is required of stewards that one be found trustworthy. 1 Corinthians 4:2
Jesus is looking for people faithful and trustworthy, but how does this fit into my life and my dreams? Sometimes it might not, sometimes you might have to walk away and leave behind careers, friends, and comfort for Christ. Are you willing to deny yourself, carry your cross, and follow Jesus?
Then Jesus said to His disciples, “If anyone wishes to come after Me, he must deny himself, and take up his cross and follow Me. Matthew 16:24
Jesus said “anyone” who wants to be a Christian must become his servant. Not just some people, not just the prophets or the apostles, everyone! Are you willing to do this? Are you doing this ? Are you truly a disciple of Christ by the standards of Jesus?
