1994 - THE YEAR OF THE SERVANT: SERVING OTHERS
By Fenton Moorhead

Mat. 23:11 The greatest among you will be your servant.

SOME CLAIM GOD'S DESIGN FOR HIS PEOPLE IS ONLY
HEALTH, WEALTH, SUCCESS, AND HAPPINESS
THROUGH SELF-INDULGENCE AND SELF-FULFILLMENT!

IT JUST DOESN'T FIT WITH JESUS LIFESTYLE OF SUFFERING AND
SACRIFICE FOR OTHERS.

INSTEAD...

GOD HAS DETERMINED TO DO GREAT THINGS THROUGH SERVANT PEOPLE.

BEING A SERVANT OF GOD IS NOT A TITLE, BUT DEEDS!

A SERVANT DOES NOT LISTEN, SHAKE HIS HEAD IN AGREEMENT, AND
WATCH SOMEONE ELSE DO WHAT THE WORDS DIRECTED.

WE ARE A CULTURE OF SPECTATORS WHO ARE ENTERTAINED BY SITTING
AND WATCHING NOT PARTICIPATING. NOT SO WITH A SERVANT!

A SERVANT OFFERS ALL HE IS TO GOD TO BE USED FOR OTHERS AS GOD
CHOOSES!

IN JESUS SIGHT, THE GREAT ARE NOT ON THE TOP OF A PYRAMID OF
LESSER PEOPLE WHO ARE ALL BENEATH THEM. THE GREAT ARE AT THE
BOTTOM BEARING THE NEEDS OF OTHERS ON THEIR BACKS AS SERVANTS OF
ALL.

HUMILITY THAT IS GENUINE ENABLES A DISCIPLE TO BE A WILLING
SERVANT AND THAT IS GREATNESS IN GOD'S SIGHT!
GREATNESS BEFORE GOD IS NOT SOMETHING ILL.
IT DOES NOT SEEK RECOGNITION OR GLORY.
THERE IS A DESIRE TO HEAR GOD SAY, "WELL DONE, GOOD AND FAITHFUL
SERVANT!"
THIS IS NOT SELF-SERVING PRIDE.
IT IS HONORABLE WHEN TRULY SELFLESS.

"THE AXE CANNOT BOAST OF THE TREES IT HAS CUT DOWN.
IT COULD DO NOTHING BUT OF THE WOODSMAN.
HE MADE IT, HE SHARPENED IT, AND HE USED IT!
THE MOMENT HE THROWS IT ASIDE IT BECOMES ONLY OLD IRON.
MAY I NEVER LOSE SIGHT OF THIS." OSWAL ...
