The Life of a Servant

By   •   March 5

As messengers of God, we will often lead lonely lives. “All men forsook me,” said Paul. It is a price we have to pay; there is a loneliness in the Gospel. Yet you will not be alone, because you will be ministered to by the Spirit of God, as Elijah was ministered to at the brook Cherith. A true messenger lives a burdened life. If he is the Lord’s vessel, he carries in his heart a burden for souls none can share but those who know it firsthand.

Prayer for the day

Just as Your Spirit took care of Elijah, I know I am not alone in Your service, almighty God.

    How wrong to call life “burdensome”, but how typical in this age of self-indulgence. We grow up not knowing what human sacrifice is. Let’s talk HUMAN CONDITION and not burden. Taking initiatives is not burdensome. Being trailblazers and pioneers in the Faith is not burdensome. This is the HUMAN condition. GET OVER IT.
