The True Servant


The real servant has special characteristics. He is someone who has denied his own self and honor, in humility and submission to the Lord. He considers himself a servant, accountable to His master, and cannot do anything of his own accord. He wearies and tires himself to serve. He does not choose an easy path.


X  (Matt 16:24 NKJV) If anyone desires to come after Me, let him deny himself, and take up his cross, and follow Me.


X  (Luke 14:27 NKJV) And whoever does not bear his cross and come after Me cannot be My disciple.


X  (1 Cor 3:8 NKJV) Each one will receive his own reward according to his own labor.


List some of the special characteristics that distinguish the true servant.
