Seek, Save and Serve – Attitude of servitude


Jesus came not only to Seek the lost and to Save the lost (Luke 19:10), but also to serve God and His people. Jesus served God and none other as is evident in his confrontation with Satan wherein He verbally expressed that one should worship the Lord God and Him Only shalt one serve (Luke 4:8). Jesus also came to serve man and He demonstrated this by washing His disciple’s feet and affirming that He (the Son of man) came not to be served but to serve (Matthew 20:28)

And as imitators of Jesus Christ (Ephesians 5:1) we are to do the same, seek the lost, save the lost and serve God and one another.

The questions that remain then are this! How are we to serve Serve God? and How are we to serve one another? The Scripture gives us the answer. We are to serve God with a perfect heart and a willing mind. (1 Chronicles 28:9) and we are to serve one another with humility as Jesus demonstrated by washing the feet of his disciples (John 13:1-14).

What is our attitude of servitude? Is it with a perfect heart, a willing mind and a humble Spirit?

1 Chronicles 28:9 (KJV)
9 And thou, Solomon my son, know thou the God of thy father, and serve him with a perfect heart and with a willing mind: for the LORD searcheth all hearts, and understandeth all the imaginations of the thoughts: if thou seek him, he will be found of thee; but if thou forsake him, he will cast thee off for ever.

John 13:14 (KJV)
14 If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet.
