How Real Servants Act- Day 33

You can tell what they are by what they do

Matthew 7:16(CEV)

We serve God by serving others.

God measures greatness in terms of service, not status. God determines your greatness by how many people you serve, not by how many people serve you.

It is possible to serve in church for a lifetime without ever being a servant. You must have a servant’s heart. How can you know if you have the heart of a servant?

Real servants make themselves available to serve

They want to be ready to jump into service when called on, and they don’t give excuses for their time of service. They don’t fill up their time with other pursuits that could limit their availability.

Being a servant means giving up the right to control your schedule and allowing God to interrupt it whenever He needs to.

Real servants pay attention to needs

When God puts someone in need right in front of you, He is giving you the opportunity to grow in servanthood.

John Wesley said: “Do all the good you can, by all the means you can, in all the ways you can, in all the places you can, at all the times you can, to all the people you can, as long as you ever can.”

That is greatness.

Real servants do their best with what they have

The Bible says, “If you wait for perfect conditions, you will never get anything done.” God expects you to do what you can, with what you have, wherever you are.

Real servants do every task with equal dedication

Whatever they do, servants “do it with all their heart.” The size of the task is irrelevant.

Great opportunities often disguise themselves in small tasks. The little things in life determine the big things. It is in these small services that we grow like Christ.

Real servants are faithful to their ministry

Servants finish their tasks, fulfill their responsibilities, keep their promises, and complete their commitments. They don’t leave a job half undone, and they don’t quit when they get discouraged. They are trustworthy and dependable. Are you trustworthy and dependable?

Real servants maintain a low profile

You don’t have to be well-known to be great. Self-promotion and servanthood don’t mix.

Servants don’t promote or call attention to themselves. Instead of acting to impress and dressing for success, they “put on the apron of humility” to serve one another. ” If recognized for their service, they humblely accept it.

Don’t be discouraged when your service is unnoticed or taken for granted. Keep on serving God. In heaven, God will openly reward the faithfulness of His servants.
