DOING GREAT THINGS (SERVING IS GREATNESS) 6

” But he who is greatest among you shall be your servant” Matthew 23:11 (NKJV).
 
Sincerely everyone wants to experience greatness or manifest greatness.
Though each person would want to be great for his or her unique reason. It could be for selfless reasons or selfish reasons.
You don’t judge your greatness by the standards of the world.
To be great is not how you control or lord yourself over others.
It is not how others bow to you.
Greatness in the kingdom is essentially service.
You don’t serve to be great.
Because you serve you are great!
Those who do great things for God, serve selflessly. If it is not selfless, then it is not service.
God is not with you to do great things for yourself. God is with you to accomplish great things to bless others.
The extent of your greatness is measured by the extent of your service. The more people you stretch yourself through the sufficient ability of God to bless or serve, the more you demonstrate the greatness of God in you.
Look at what Jesus said to his disciples:
 
“Hearing this, the [other] ten became indignant with James and John. Calling them to Himself, Jesus said to them, “You know that those who are recognized as rulers of the Gentiles lord it over them; and their powerful men exercise authority over them [tyrannizing them]. But this is not how it is among you; instead, whoever wishes to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wishes to be first and most important among you must be slave of all. For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life as a [f]ransom for many.” Mark 10:41-45 (Amplified).
 
From previous discussion we realized that God has called unto greatness and He is with us to do great things.
Now if you are thinking of where to start from, our Lord Jesus has given the obvious answer: SERVE!
From Mark 10:42-45, you can see the contrast between the greatness of this world and the greatness of the Kingdom.
To serve in the Kingdom is to selflessly make sacrifices which will bless others. This doesn’t deny the idea that the Lord exalts those who serve in the Kingdom. He surely rewards those who labour in the Kingdom.
Yet, the motive of our service is to be a satisfaction unto others.
Beloved, attempt to do something great for your generation through service.
And it takes humility and genuine heart for God, to serve others.
David didn’t become great because he wanted to “lord over others”. He became great because he saw an opportunity to serve his nation Israel.
Who else will you find in the Kingdom who did great things without service?
Even our Lord came to serve and not to be serve. This is the reality of greatness.
Selah
 
DIG DEEPER:
(Luke 22:26-27; Matthew 20:26-27; Acts 13:22,36; Hebrews 6:10; John 12:26)
 
WE PRAY:
That we will selflessly serve our generation in doing great things for the Lord.
 
BIBLE READING
Day 126: 1 Chronicles 9-11
 
DECLARE THESE WORDS:
– I am a satisfaction unto others.
– I am a blessing unto others.
– When people encounter me, they encounter love unfeigned.
– In which ever capacity the Lord has given me, I still serve my generation.
– I serve in and out of season.
– I am not proud.
– I don’t lord over others.
– I serve!
– I love to serve.
– I am a man of service.
Oh Hallelujah, GLOREEEEY!

David didn’t become great because he wanted to “lord over others”. He became great because he saw an opportunity to serve his nation Israel. In which ever capacity the Lord has given me, I still serve my generation.
