  1. He Came To Serve


    In 1931, Mahatma Gandhi, one of the greatest leaders of the twentieth century, went to several European nations to visit the leaders if various states. Wherever He went , he took a goat with him as a symbol of his own lowliness and humility. When he went to Rome to pay a call on the Italian Dictator Mussolini, he arrived as always, dressed in old beggar’s clothes, leading his goat by a rope. Mussolini’s children laughed when they saw the thin ,bald, powerless-looking man but the dictator Mussolini snapped at them and ordered them silent â€That scrawny old man and his scrawny old goat â€he said “are SHAKING the British Empireâ€.

    This is the power of a true servant; the power to shake kingdoms, the power that was first modeled for us by the greatest servant of all, Jesus Christ, the servant-Lord. The Bible says that “who (Jesus)being in the form of God , did not consider it robbery to be equal with GOD,but made himself of no reputation, taking the form of a bound servant and coming in the likeness of menâ€Phil.2.2-7.

    Be a servant, I think is one of the most important message of Christmas and also many who forget it while they celebrating Christmas even now .This is what GOD reminds us through Paul, the apostle that Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesusâ€Phil.2:5.Eventhough He went back to heaven, He wanted to continue to serve the world to finish the very purpose of Christmas event.

    Many of us are like the priest and Levite, in the parable of the Good Samaritan, saw the wounded humanity but both†passed by on the other sideâ€.â€No man cared for my soulâ€says the man who sought for refuge,Psal.142.2.Jesus said “even the son of man did not come to be served but serve..â€Mk.10.45.When he saw the multitudes, He was moved with compassion for them because they are weary and scattered, like sheep having no shepherd.then He said to His disciples†but the harvest truly is plentiful but the laborers are few,Matt.9.36-37.

    He wanted to serve the world because the situation is not yet changed from His days .He seeks the servant leaders to serve the world and shake the kingdom of darkness through them .Are you ready to take it a challenge by committing your life during the time of Christmas season .

    Let us make this Christmas a meaningful event by being a servant .GOD wants you as a servant to serve His people.
