Today's reading: Psalm 119:121-129 (Ayin)
Three times in the eight verses of Ayin 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 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 a servant of God to someone who's a new believer or doesn't yet have a relationship with God? Tami
