Seeing yourself as I see you helps you to see others the way I see them. It allows you to serve joyfully because you are looking for ways to reveal My goodness to them. Everything you need was purchased at the cross of Calvary. I am the giver of good gifts. You are My gifts to the world because You carry My presence everywhere you go. When you serve using the various gifts I have bestowed upon you, you release My presence changing the very atmosphere. Using your gifts and working unto Me is an act of worship in itself.
People are attracted to extravagant love. I am extravagant and I never do anything halfway. Serve as if you truly represented the King of kings and the Lord of lords. Whether anyone recognizes you or not, everything you do for Me will surely be rewarded. The Kingdom culture is about serving so that the world sees what a gracious and loving Father I am! Know that you are a beloved child of the King and then serve well. Go lower so that I can take you higher!
1 Peter 5:5-6 Amplified Bible (AMP)
5 Likewise, you younger men [of lesser rank and experience], be subject to your elders [seek their counsel]; and all of you, clothe yourselves with humility toward one another [tie on the servant’s apron], for God is opposed to the proud [the disdainful, the presumptuous, and He defeats them], but He gives grace to the humble.
6 Therefore humble yourselves under the mighty hand of God [set aside self-righteous pride], so that He may exalt you [to a place of honor in His service] at the appropriate time,
Philippians 2:3-7 International Children’s Bible (ICB)
3 When you do things, do not let selfishness or pride be your guide. Be humble and give more honor to others than to yourselves. 4 Do not be interested only in your own life, but be interested in the lives of others.
Be Unselfish Like Christ
5 In your lives you must think and act like Christ Jesus.
6 Christ himself was like God in everything. He was equal with God. But he did not think that being equal with God was something to be held on to.
7 He gave up his place with God and made himself nothing. He was born as a man and became like a servant.
