1 Samuel 3:19
And Samuel grew, and the lord was with him, and did let none of his words fall to the ground.
Today's' message is taken from this month's focus discussions Living Life God's Way; the best way to do this is to be a Willing Servant. The story of Samuel is that he was called by God at an early, but even then he was willing to serve the Lord.
There are other notables recorded in scripture that showed their willingness to serve God, and serve they did. These questions come to mind, how willing are you to serve when the Lord calls you to service? Are we willing to serve regardless of age and or social status? Are we willing to serve in unknown places or situations? Regardless of your answer, remember God is with you through His Spirit. God is true to His word when He says He will never leave nor forsake His own.
A willing servant has a committed heart, which is essential to our service. In our service to God, what is our motive? Is it to the glory of God or for self-aggrandizement? If for selfish reasons, then only earthly rewards is what we receive because our focus is on position instead of the service we have been called to render. Remember Jesus’ philosophy on servant, He came “to serve not to be served.” He is our perfect example of being a willing servant.
A willing servant has a heart for God and seeks to please Him with our service.
