Being a Servant

What does it mean to be a Servant of God?

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men,since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving. Colossians 3:23-25

There are 3 parts of the Hebrew word -servant
•Ayin-Looks like an eye
•Bet-The floorplan of a house

Our job as a servant is to be looking around God's kingdom (his house)
to see how we might serve Him.

That leaves Dalet which means door. 

These servants were marked!
then take an awl and push it through his ear lobe into the door, and he will become your servant for life. Do the same for your maidservant. 
Deuteronomy 15:17

Servants had an awl pushed through their ear and into the door post.
Ouch that would really hurt!

We too are marked! And you also were included in Christ when you heard the word of truth, the gospel of your salvation. Having believed, you were marked in him with a seal, the promised Holy Spirit.
Ephesians 1:13

Jesus is called the door! We must enter through Him to have the privilege of serving.

Once we enter His door we are His servants. 
Look around and see-

Where can you serve?
Who can you serve?
How can you serve?



  1. good morning! Stopping by from the Sunday Social Follow. I'm now following you on friend connect. Have a great one! Ashley @ My Little Space 4 Everything http://mylittlespace4everything

  2. My focus is to serve... not necessarily the surrounding people, but the Lord... whether it means reading the Word or spiritually connected books and spending more time with Him, or heading up the street to check on the refugees in the apt complex, or loving my husband in ways that will take more pressure off of his heavily-focused ministry jobs. HE is the "caller"... I must be the server.


Thank you for visiting, Praying that you are blessed today. Jann
