Servants of Christ

Let a man so consider us, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God. ~1 Corinthians 4:1 (NKJV)

With all the tags and titles we carry, it is crucial to remember that ministers of Christ are, first and foremost, servants. As His ministers of reconciliation, we share the powerful Gospel message of God’s liberating power to save all who believe in Christ. This Good News shows how we can become righteous in God’s eyes by having faith in Him (Romans 1:16-17).


As true servants of our Lord Jesus, we must not engage in quarrels or fights. Instead, we should be gentle listeners, kind and patient with everyone to maintain peaceful relationships. We must also be skilled teachers, who can effectively deal with difficult people. By gently instructing those who oppose the truth, we can help them see their true condition and turn away from darkness to the Light and from Satan’s power to God’s power.


By doing so, we give God space to work in people’s hearts, allowing them to learn the truth, come to their senses, and escape the devil’s snare enslaves them to his will. When they place their faith in Christ, they receive total forgiveness of sin and become heirs of God’s precious promises (2 Timothy 2:24-26, Acts 26:18).


In Christ, our tag, title, position, power, status or state does not matter. We are all servants Christ at best.


Servants at Best

© Odette Hannah 3/7/13


From this day forward

Until eternity,

Remember this one thing

On your road to destiny.

No matter who you are,

No matter what you possess,

We are all

Servants at best.


In this world

Are many titles:

Doctor, Lawyer, or

Maybe a Firefighter.

But no matter

What our quest,

We are all

Servants at best.

We all play a part

In our destiny:

Deacon, musician or even

Five-fold ministry.

But no matter

What we profess,

We are all

Servants at best.


Some positions

Wield lots of power.

While others get paid

Pennies by the hour.

But no matter

How much we assess,

We are all

Servants at best.


Put all confidence

In only Christ,

Not in the toys and

treasures of this life.

No matter who

Owns more or less,

We are all

Servants at best.


We all have an

Appointment with purpose:

At the Oval Office

Or in a 3-ring circus.

But no matter what

Position we possess,

We are all

Servants at best.


God gave us each

Gifts and talents.

Without Him

We are out of balance.

But no matter

How we are blessed,

We are all

Servants at best.


We may have inherited

Loads of money

Or our check books

Are looking quite funny.

But no matter

What we bequest,

We are all

Servants at best.

We may live in a place

That is quite nice

Or in the corner of room

That is fit for mice.

But no matter

What our address,

We are all

Servants at best.

It's not about us,

But about Him alone.

All praise and glory

To Him belong.

But no matter

Who we've impressed,

We are all

Servants at best.


Our confidence is

Found only in God.

Any other thinking

Is vastly flawed.

But no matter

What we attest,

We are all

Servants at best.


We are all

Servants at best.

Nothing more.

Noting less.

No matter the position.

No matter the quest.

We are all

Servants at best.
