Servants of God

Our current cultural context can partially be summarized by the phrase “the exaltation of self”. And this week, we see Jesus speak a parable that runs counter to this current cultural moment as well as our fleshly instincts. Specifically, Jesus teaches us that the position of disciple requires the posture of a servant. And as a servant of God, we are to do whatever is commanded; we are to focus on our duties and not on ourselves; we are to serve because this is our duty, and we are to find our worth, not in our accomplishments, but instead in our relationship to our Master who is God. What a privilege that God, our Heavenly Father, invites us to be His servants. There is no greater honor than to serve Him.
