I want to be a servant like Jesus, and I want to be more like Jesus, but my actions do not match up with my words. I can tell how much my actions and words match, because if God calls me to do something that isn’t as fun, I ask myself, “Do I find someone else to do it, or so I submit to God’s authority?”
Jesus served his disciples even though he knew he was about to die and suffer for us—it makes me ask, “Do I rationalize that I have done a lot of hard things today, so maybe this is for someone else?” Jesus served willingly and gladly, and when I serve, do I do it with a smile, or is it forced? Is my heart truly at peace?
As I read this, I learn more and more what it means to truly be a servant like Jesus. I meditate on the depth of what Jesus did for me and others. Being servant-hearted is not a title to be worn, it is a life to be lived out in word and deed. Would we be people that are an example of Jesus, and when people see us, do they see Jesus?
Be encouraged, dear friends. The beauty of the gospel is even if we have fallen short, we can come to God humbly and ask him to teach us how to serve like Jesus. The beauty of the Gospel is Jesus who died for us, so we could have abundant life now and for eternity. As we imitate Jesus, we experience the fullness of His joy!
