The Glory In Service

Apostle Grace Lubega

Matthew 23:11(KJV); But he that is greatest among you shall be your servant.

Service is one of the principles by which your star shines.

David was anointed by God to be king over Israel.

However, the fact that he was anointed was not enough to propel him into the office God had ordained for him. The Bible says that he served Saul (1 Samuel 18:5).

Solomon was promised the throne but simply because this was so, did not guarantee that he would become the next king of Israel.

What made him different from other sons of David? The Bible speaks of him in terms of servanthood. In 1 Kings 1:26, he is referred to as the servant of David.

Joseph had a dream but what positioned him in the place of greatness? Genesis 39:2 speaks of how he served Potiphar.

Yes, a prophetic word has been spoken over your life about the great destiny of your life but simply because God spoke does not guarantee that you will end up where He ordained for you to be.

There are patterns and principles and service is one of them.

In whichever place you are in, choose to serve.

At your workplace, be more than the employee who shows up to earn a salary, have the heart of service.

In ministry, be more than the one who turns up every Sunday to hear the sermon and return home, have a part to play, serve.

If you are a man or woman of God, you too ought to serve someone else and not merely expect service from people.

Service will always polish your star.

Service will always polish your star.

PRAYER: Father, I thank you for this great wisdom. I embrace it and walk in its understanding. Your grace labours in me and causes me to serve with diligence and excellence. In every place that you have positioned me, I choose to serve because that is the example you set for me. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
