BIBLE IN ONE YEAR: Songs of Solomon 7 – 8; Matthew 9 – 10.


Jesus Christ, the Son of God, is the best example of God’s faithful servant. He told His disciples that whoever wants to be great must become a servant (Mark 10:43) and that you can tell what people are by what they do (Mark 7:16). While the world measures greatness in terms of power, possessions, position and prestige, Jesus measures greatness in terms of service. God determines your greatness by how many people you serve, not how many people serve you. Jesus devoted His life and ministry to serving others. He wants us to do the same. Do you have the heart of a servant? Let us seek and get an answer to this question by examining the hallmarks of a true and faithful servant of the Lord:

First, true servants of God make themselves available to serve Him when it is convenient and when it is not convenient for them. Like soldiers, they are always standing by for duty. In 2 Timothy 2:4, the Bible says that no soldier on duty entangles himself with the affairs of this life; that he may please him who hath chosen him to be a soldier.
Are you a true and faithful servant of the Lord? If you are, then you will allow God to control and interrupt your schedule without complaining. Your response to Him at all times will be: “Here am I, send me. Anywhere, I will go for You.” He interrupted Elisha and the disciples (Peter, James, John, Matthew and Paul of Tarsus).

Second, True servants know that we serve God by serving others. Hence, they are always on the look out to help others. As someone put it, “When God puts someone in need right in front of you, He is giving you the opportunity to grow in servanthood.” The Bible underscores this trait like this, “As we have therefore opportunity, let us do good unto all men, especially unto them who are of the household of faith (Galatians 6:10).

Dearly beloved, in serving God and man faithfully, I encourage you to make your motto: “Giving the utmost to the Highest. Your reward will be inestimable.


1. Father, by Your mercy, make me Your true servant, in the name of Jesus.
2. I overcome satanic distraction and manipulation, in the name of Jesus.
3. Father, multiply Your grace and peace towards me, in the name of Jesus.

4. Father, take my life and all my possessions; let them be consecrated to Thee, in the name of Jesus.
5. Father, give me the heart to serve You and make You glorified, in the name of Jesus.
6. By Your mercy, confer greatness on me as I serve You humbly, in the name of Jesus.
7. Father, help me to give the utmost to You, in the name of Jesus.
