God and Serving

X  (Rev 1:12,13,16 NKJV) 12 I saw seven golden lampstands, 13 and in the midst of the seven lampstands One like the Son of Man … 16 He had in His right hand seven stars …


X  (Rev 1:20 NKJV) The mystery of the seven stars which you saw in My right hand, and the seven golden lampstands: The seven stars are the angels (i.e. messengers or bishops) of the seven churches, and the seven lampstands which you saw are the seven churches.


The real service is where Christ is at its center, being its source of light, with the servants in His right hand. Out of His love and humility, God allows us to be His servants. He could have effected the service without any human help at all, but He gave us the grace to be His tools, co-workers and partakers of His ministry.


X  (John 15:16 NKJV) You did not choose Me, but I chose you and appointed you that you should go and bear fruit, and that your fruit should remain, that whatever you ask the Father in My name He may give you


What do I do to be in Christ’s right hand, and to have Him the center of my service?
