Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God – Romans 1:1 (NIV)
Paul says in today’s Bible verse says that he is a servant of Jesus. The interesting thing about a servant is that they seek the desires of their master before fulfilling their own. Fulfilling God’s desires was Paul’s approach to life after He met Jesus. He desired to please God above anything else.
We also see that Paul declares he is a servant of Jesus before he mentions any of his titles and what he was called to. You might feel that you are called to be a missionary or serve God as a musician. Those things are great, but first, you should strive to be a servant of Jesus Christ.
It’s exciting to have a God-given dream and to use your talents for Him but you cannot truly serve Him if you are not first a servant of Him.
So today, decide to follow in Paul’s example and become a servant of Jesus Christ. God has done so much for you it’s the least you can do for Him.
