Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God – Romans 1:1 (NIV)
Paul says in this verse says that he is a servant of Jesus. A servant seeks fulfilling the desires of their master before seeking their own. This was Paul’s approach to life after He met Jesus. He wanted to please God above anything else.
It’s also interesting to fact that Paul declares he is a servant of Jesus before he mentions any of his titles and what he was called to. You might be called to be a pastor or a businessman. You might be called to be a missionary or serve God as a musician, however first and foremost you should strive to be a servant of Jesus Christ. It’s exciting to fulfill a God given dream and to use your talents for Him but you cannot truly serve Him if you are not first a servant of Him.
Today, decide to follow in Paul’s example and become a servant of Jesus Christ. God has done so much for you it’s the least you can do for Him.
