Give me the heart of a servant...

WORDS:  Michael Puryear (w. 1992)

Having our hearts in the right place is the key to servitude.  If our heart is focused on serving anyone other than our Lord and Savior, then we cannot be the tender, faithful and true servant He requires us to be.  Setting our hearts on Christ will enable us to be compassionate and loving, like our Master.  This is not an easy thing to do.  In order for Him to be able to fill us with love, we must empty ourselves of all the selfish thoughts and desires we have as human beings.  Christ gave these requirements, “If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross daily, and follow Me." (Luke 9:23)  We also must be willing to let go of our agendas and plans for our future and let God, through His Word, do the directing, (Proverbs 3:6) allowing Him to use us in such a way that the world will see Christ living in us through our speech and conduct.

Where is your heart?  Does your heart wholly seek to do the will of your Heavenly Father?

May we all empty ourselves and allow God to fill us with love so that through our life the world may come to know Him.
