Developing a Servant Heart

Adopt the mind-set of Jesus.Though He was in the form of God, He chose not to cling to equality with God; But He poured Himself out to fill a vessel brand new;a servant in form and a man indeed. The very likeness of humanity,He humbled Himself,obedient to death—

Philippians 2:6-8

Jesus is the ultimate example of humility. He did not value His own self-importance or honor, but freely gave it up in every situation so that God’s will could be carried out and God could be glorified through His life.

If we are of this same humble mindset, forsaking our own reputation and honor in order to be obedient to God’s word and will, we will be able to make unbelievable progress in our Christian lives! In fact, God pays very close attention to our hearts and is ready and eager to strengthen those who desire to live unto His honor and glory. “Thus says the Lord: ‘Heaven is My throne, and earth is My footstool. Where is the house that you will build Me? And where is the place of My rest? For all those things My hand has made, and all those things exist, says the Lord. ‘But on this one will I look: On him who is poor and of a contrite spirit, and who trembles at My word.’” Isaiah 66:1-2.

Rules of Life are made up of intentional spiritual practices and commitments for the purpose of serving as a trellis that supports the branches that are connected to the vine, Jesus (John 15) in order to have a fruitful life of discipleship. This is a worthy pursuit that saints throughout the ages have undertaken either in community or individually to grow in Christ.”
