"The Servant of the Saints"

“Do nothing out of selfish ambition or vain conceit, but in humility consider others better than yourselves" (Philippians 2:3 NIV).

It was a mild evening in June and so we thought we would have our house church meeting in the back yard. We celebrated the Lords Supper and my husband sang a new song that he had received from the Lord that day while driving back home from a neighboring city.

After the Lord’s Supper and after my husband shared a little bit about what the Lord had placed on his heart, we had a barbeque and continued to enjoy our fellowship. My husband cooked the meat and I brought out all other items that were needed to have a relaxed evening. 

As I was serving the people I remembered that about 33 years ago I had learned this profession and now at church I was doing the same thing. As the evening went on I was getting tired from serving others. My attitude was not the same anymore and my humility was nowhere to be found. I had to talk to the LORD in the kitchen. I said, “Help me Jesus to see like you see. I need to change my attitude right away.” He instantly replied to me with these simple words, “Serve these Saints.” 

These three words kicked in right away like a gear shift and as I went outside again He opened my eyes to understanding. Yes of course, the Saints are at our house and I get to serve them! Wow, what an honor, what a privilege and what a great opportunity!

I tell you, this perspective will change your whole attitude in serving others. The next time you meet a child of God, stop for a moment and remember that this person is a Saint of the Most High. Take this as a great opportunity to grow in humility, in respect, and to become a loving servant. You be surprised to see how many Saints you actually know!

Have a wonderfully blessed day!
