Complete Servant

today's reading.
Psalms 119:113-128    I hate the double-minded, but I love your law...

think about it.
What does God provide for the writer (119:114,116-117)? God's Word can keep us from evil; what do evildoers do (119:115)? How does the Lord deal with those who turn from His Word (119:118-120)? How would living by God's Word demonstrate that you're His servant?

the blog.
Serving the Lord is simply part of being a Christ-follower and there are plenty of opportunities to serve. Church is a good example. On a Sunday morning it's not unusual to open the bulletin or see a flyer letting people know about opportunities to serve in children's ministry, as an usher, in music ministry, as a greeter, etc. But as I read Psalm 119:121-128, I noticed that the Psalmist kept referring to himself as a servant, but he wasn't talking about serving. Now that got me thinking about what it means for me/us to be God's servant, and it dawned on me that serving by participating in church on Sunday or Wednesday or volunteering in the community or ________________ (you fill in the blank) is really just part of being a servant 24/7, seven days a week.

So what does being God's servant mean to you? What does that look like in your life? What might a co-worker, a neighbor or a family member say about you being a servant of God? Tami W.
