TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
Serving others ushers in the miraculous. When you lay down your life for the good of others, you are the most like Me. Do not fear failure. I Am within you and will work through your hands, your feet and your efforts. Let My Spirit lead you.
Did you know the word “minister” means “servant”? That means all of us reading this devotion today are ministers. It’s doesn’t matter what our day job is. Whether you’re a trash man, a radio personality, a momma or daddy – whatever it is you do, you are a minister and your ministry is seen by who and how you serve.
Service is all about ministry.
For even the Son of man came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give his life a ransom for many. – Mark 10:45
Jesus said that He didn’t come to be served. Think about that. The maker of the universe came to serve others. Why would He do that? Because all great leaders are servants first and Jesus is the greatest leader ever!
Want to be a great leader in your family or in your job? Want to lead many into the Kingdom through ministry? Be a servant first and foremost. It’s that simple!
Now, Jesus also said He came to give His life as a ransom for many – that is the ultimate act of service. While at first glance it seems we couldn’t possibly follow those footsteps, let me tell you this: Jesus is the blueprint and we are to become just like Him!
When you minister to others, lay down your life for that calling. Don’t be swayed by time or money. Don’t let your critics keep you from serving others. Lay down your comfort, your time, talents and your treasure to lead the lost to Jesus. He is our Prime Minister and the ultimate servant.
