Jesus measures greatness by service, not status

Jesus measures greatness by service, not status
Whoever wants to be great must become a servant. Mark 10:43

The world defines greatness in terms of power, possessions, prestige &
position. In our self-serving culture with its me-first mentality,
acting like a servant is not a popular concept. God measures greatness
in terms of service, not status. God determines your greatness by how
many people you serve. This is so contrary to the world’s idea of
greatness that we have a hard time understanding it, much less
practicing it.

Thousands of books have been written on leadership, but few on servant
hood. Everyone wants to lead, no one wants to be a servant. Even
Christians want to be “servant-leaders” not servants. Having the heart
of a servant is more important.  God shaped you for service, not for
self-centeredness. Without a servant’s heart, you will be tempted to
misuse your shape for personal gain.

God often tests our hearts by asking us to serve in ways we’re not
shaped. Your primary ministry should be in the area of your shape, but
your secondary service is wherever you’re needed at the moment. Your
shape reveals your ministry, but your servant’s heart will reveal your

Anyone can be a servant. All it requires is the Character.

Therefore God exalted him to the highest place and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee SHOULD bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Nothing Can Stand Up To God’s Love

Romans 8:35 – Who shall separate us from the love of Christ? Shall
tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril,
or sword?

The pastor Hokkien and Mandarin congregations, Pastor Mark, used to suffer
from certain health problems before he became a Christian. His doctor told
him that he had to be on medication for life. He also had a huge financial
debt. But when he caught hold of the teaching that he is God’s beloved, he
believed it totally. He also believed that nothing could be greater than
God’s love for him.

Today, Pastor Mark is off medication and completely delivered from that
debt. God caused him to triumph over his sickness and debt because he cannot
be defeated when he knows that he is God’s beloved.

Tribulation, distress or persecution cannot stop your heavenly Father’s love
from working on your behalf. His love for you is bigger and stronger than
your financial woes, marital problems or health concerns. And when God’s
heart of love moves for His beloved, He opens doors that no one can shut and
He makes a way when there seems to be none.

Even during lean times, you will never find the righteous forsaken. King
David said, “I have been young, and now am old; yet I have not seen the
righteous forsaken, nor his descendants begging bread.” (Psalm 37:25) Can
famine or recession stop God’s love from providing for His beloved? No! So
don’t think to yourself, “I must provide for my family. If I don’t, who is
going to take care of them? How are they going to survive?” God wants you to
know that His love will continue to provide abundantly for you and your

What about deadly pestilences such as bird flu and mad cow disease, natural
disasters such as tsunamis and earthquakes, or terrorist bombings? My
friend, these things cannot devour you because His love protects you. You
will enjoy His protection when you know that you are His beloved.

Because God’s love is greater than all the evil put together, we are more
than conquerors through Christ who loved us. (Romans 8:37) We always win in
the fight of life not because of our love for Him, but because of His love
for us!

God speak to me…

The man whispered, “God, speak to me.” And a meadowlark sang.
But, the man did not hear.

Then the man yelled, “God, speak to me!” Thunder rolled across the sky.
But, the man did not listen.

The man looked around and said, “God, let me see you.”
And the stars shined brightly.
But the man did not notice.

And the man shouted, “God, show me a miracle.”
And a life was born.
But the man did not know.

So, the man cried out in despair, “Touch me God, and let me know
you are here.” Whereupon, God reached down and touched the man.
But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.

So remember, don’t miss out on a blessing because it
isn’t packaged the way that you expect.

Take notice of the blessings around you.

Don’t be reluctant to show MERCY

Don’t be reluctant to show mercy When people sin, you should forgive
and comfort them, so they won’t give up in despair. 2 Corinthians 2:7

We all need mercy, because we all stumble & fall & require help getting
back on track. We need to offer mercy to each other & be willing to
receive it from each other. You can’t have friendship/fellowship without
forgiveness because bitterness & resentment always destroys it. Sometimes
we hurt each other intentionally or unintentionally, but either way, it
takes massive amounts of mercy & grace to create & maintain relationships.

God says: You must make allowance for each other’s faults & forgive the
person who offends you. The mercy God shows to us is the motivation for us
to show mercy to others. Whenever you’re hurt by someone, you have a
choice to make.

Many people are reluctant to show mercy because they don’t understand the
difference between trust & forgiveness. Forgiveness is letting go of the
past. Forgiveness must be immediate, whether or not a person asks for it.
Trust has to do with future. Trust requires a track record &  must be
rebuilt over time. If someone hurts you repeatedly, you are commanded by
God to forgive them instantly, but you are not expected to trust them
immediately &  you are not expected to continue allowing them to hurt you.
The best place to restore trust is within the supportive context of a
small group that offers both encouragement & accountability.
