When we take the bold step towards Jesus and say to Him, “I surrender all!” what comes next, what must I do to fulfill my destined purpose, work and walk.
The walk as we all know, is as important as the work, so how can I be effective in ministry and this work for the one who has sent me so that by the end of the day I am assured of receiving “WELCOME GOOD AND FAITHFUL SERVANT”!
All the answers that we need are in the word of God- THE HOLY BIBLE.
To start with, we must understand who a servant is and outline the major attributes that a servant must possess to please-ALWAYS, the master.
A servant is one sent on an errand for a purpose and always there, to do the WILL of his MASTER----Matthew 10:16, John 14:15
A servant must always trust the GOOD judgement of his master; whatever he is told to do HE MUST DO! ------John 14:1
A servant must lay aside a confused mind concerning his master and be focused ALWAYS!-------John 16:16-17, Romans 8:5-10
A servant is in awe of his master in every way-----------Revelations 4:11
The servant will always do what he can in all his power to protect and keep the good image of his master--------Colossians 2:8, Philippians 4:8
The servant must always speak well about his master to all that he comes in contact with---Psalm 9:1
Most importantly, the servant understudies his master and learns from him how to work and walk right
Elisha did with Elijah
Aaron did with Moses
The disciples did with Jesus
To mention just a few among so many in Bible times
