Serving is a Ministry: having a servant heart

Who says serving isn't a ministry? I have heard people say things like, “it don't take all that to be apart of a church,” “we don't have to do this to be in ministry,” and “people shouldn't have to serve or work in ministry. " Then they will say, “all I have to do IS GO TO CHURCH AND GO HOME." However when you become a part of the body of Christ, you take on the characteristics of Christ who was the ultimate servant, and in some translations, a slave. Being a servant was Jesus’ ministry; Jesus served day and night interceding on our behalf, and He still does today! He fed the hungry, healed the sick, and He did it all without complaining. Jesus also trained his disciples and washed their feet. He did all of this to give God glory. This is a perfect example of how we as a people of God should serve with a servant heart.

Jesus was sent to serve God's people to carry out the will of God not His own will. When you serve with a servant heart it will not matter if someone thanks you or if they call your name to acknowledge you, because what you did was for God's glory. A servant /slave works to please their master, their Lord, and their savior; so if no one appreciates you God’s extended grace and mercy should be enough for his servants. If we desire to be like Jesus Christ our attitude will be like His when He came with an attitude of a serving and not to be served. We are created to serve; rather if it's in your family, neighborhood, or in a prison ministry. Serving is a ministry because you are expressing the love of God to a group of people or a person. With all you do, do unto the Lord with a servant heart, not out of obligation to a woman or man, do it all for Him for He did it all for you.
