A benefit of being a servant

A servant is a person who serves another person. A servant does not operate on his own agenda but on the agenda and directions given.

 It’s a great privilege for us Christians to be called servants of the Lord. We will benefit from this great role when we stop living for ourselves but for Him.

 Romans 6:22 

 22But now being made free from sin, and become servants to God, ye have your fruit unto holiness, and the end everlasting life.

Ephesians 6:5-7 

 5Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;

 6Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;

One benefit of being a servant of the Lord is clearly stated in Isaiah:

Isaiah 54:17 

 17No weapon that is formed against thee shall prosper; and every tongue that shall rise against thee in judgment thou shalt condemn. This is the heritage of the servants of the LORD, and their righteousness is of me, saith the LORD.

There is divine protection in serving the Lord according to His will. Notice this above scripture applies to ‘the servants of the Lord’.

Are you a servant of the Lord? Are you living to please Him or are you just doing your own thing.

There is divine protection when we obey the Lord and become His servants indeed.
