HUMBLE SERVANTS 

In this world people strive for status, recognition and fame. Even in churches there are titles  and high ranking officials,  men and women of statue and importance. However, in the kingdom of God  those things are of no importance. 
Jesus rebuked the pharisees and was teaching His disciples. He said:
“They love the place of honor at banquets and the chief seats in the synagogues, 7and respectful greetings in the market places, and being called Rabbi by men. 8“But do not be called Rabbi; for One is your Teacher, and you are all brothers. 9“Do not call anyone on earth your father; for One is your Father, He who is in heaven. 10“Do not be called leaders; for One is your Leader, that is, Christ. 11“But the greatest among you shall be your servant. 12“Whoever exalts himself shall be humbled; and whoever humbles himself shall be exalted.” Matthew 23:6-12.
We are called to be humble servants of Jesus,  undeserving, without title or status. Jesus said to His disciples:7“Which of you, having a slave plowing or tending sheep, will say to him when he has come in from the field, ‘Come immediately and sit down to eat’? 8“But will he not say to him, ‘Prepare something for me to eat, and properly clothe yourself and serve me while I eat and drink; and afterward you may eat and drink’? 9“He does not thank the slave because he did the things which were commanded, does he? 10“So you too, when you do all the things which are commanded you, say, ‘We are unworthy slaves; we have done only that which we ought to have done.” Luke  17:7-10.
Are we ready to be undeserving,  humble servants of Jesus? 
May Jesus bless you.
