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.

Read Ruth Bell Graham’s message, “Emmanuel: God Is With Us.”

Prayer for the day

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