St Paul wrote, "As the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart."  

             Ephesians 6.6.   

The appellation servant may not, at first thought, have the charm that some titles given to Christians might have.   We might rather be called faithful followers of the Lord or strong believers or kind and understanding worshipers of Him who is the Light.  But when it is accepted in the heart, servant becomes a beautiful and meaningful name.   

Servant suggests long hours, meager wages, tiresome work, drudgery, unquestioning obedience.  In the time of St Paul it could even mean slavery; the word he used is best translated bond servant.   

But servants of Christ truly suggests happy hours, rich reward, interesting work, satisfying endeavor, voluntary obedience.  We sing, "Savior, like a Shepherd lead us...  Thine we are...  Thou hast bought us."  That blessed truth lifts us from the quagmire of depression and gives us a new vision of Christian service.  It puts new meaning into the performance of everyday duties, no matter what.   

Blessed is that servant of Christ who does the will of God from the heart, a heart that rejoices in the redeeming love of Christ and counts it a privilege to be both His servant and His fellow-worker wherever we might go, whatever we might do.   

 

Lord Jesus, we thank You for buying us back with a great price.  We would be Your own, for time and for eternity.  As Your servants and fellow-workers, use us to do what is Your will, that in doing what You bid we may do it gladly, as unto Thee.  And grant us at the last, through Thy grace, the faithful servant's reward, for Your holy Name's sake.  Amen.
