Servant

Today's reading: Psalm 119:121-129 (Ayin)

Three times in the eight verses of Ayin, Psalm 119:121-129, the psalmist identifies himself as a "servant" of God.

"Give your servant a portion of good..." (vs. 122) "Deal with your servant according to your steadfast love..." (vs. 124) "I am your servant; give me understanding..." (vs. 125)

The word "servant" isn't one of my favorite words (unless, of course, I'm the one being served, and then I like it much more). But the Bible is clear that if we've chosen to follow Christ, God wants and expects us to willingly be His servant. And that's precisely what the psalmist's words convey in this stanza.

When you think of being a "servant" of God, what comes to mind? What does being God's servant mean for you personally? How would you describe being God's servant to someone? Tami
