Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The institutional church’s idea of a servant of God is not like Christ’s idea. His idea is

that we serve Him by being the servants of others. Jesus Christ actually “out-socialized”

the socialists. He said that in His kingdom the greatest one would be the servant of all

(see Matthew 23:11).

   

The real test of a saint is not one’s willingness to preach the gospel, but one’s willingness

to do something like washing the disciples’ feet— that is, being willing to do those things

that seem unimportant in human estimation but count as everything to God.

   

It was Paul’s delight to spend his life for God’s interests in other people, and he did not

care what it cost. But before we will serve, we stop to ponder our personal and financial

concerns— “What if God wants me to go over there? And what about my salary? What is

the climate like there? Who will take care of me? A person must consider all these

things.” All that is an indication that we have reservations about serving God.

    

But the apostle Paul had no conditions or reservations. Paul focused his life on Jesus

Christ’s idea of a New Testament saint; that is, not one who merely proclaims the gospel,

but one who becomes broken bread and poured-out wine in the hands of Jesus Christ

for the sake of others. if we are totally surrendered to Him, we have no goals of our own

to serve.
