i am your servant; give me understanding, that I may know your testimonies! [psalm 119:125]


having a posture of a servant, you do not have authority. you acknowledge that you have a master, a king in which you serve.


too often we have such an arrogance in thinking that somehow we …

have the resources to provide.

have the charisma to build community.

have the power to heal.

have the voice in which others listen.

have the answers.


we have nothing apart from Christ, but the beauty is that “you are no longer a slave, but a son, and if a son, then an heir through God.” (galatians 4:7)


are you resting in your identity while pleading to know God more? or are you trying to play king of your own life?
