Servant of The Lord

We, as followers of Christ, have all been called to be his servants and witnesses in taking the gospel to the ends of the earth, in making disciples (of Christ) of all nations, and in teaching them to obey the commandments of Jesus Christ. We are to serve the Lord with our whole heart and mind. This means we give everything to the Lord, and he doesn’t just get the leftovers. It means our primary purpose and goal in life is to please the Lord and to follow Jesus Christ wherever he leads us – to be set apart (unlike; different) from the world, and to be set apart to God and to his service. This is what it means to be holy.

Servant of the Lord / An Original Work / July 26, 2012

Based off Romans 1:1-17 NIV

Servant of the Lord;
For the gospel you’re set apart.
Promised through the prophets of old:
Jesus, Son of God.
Through Him, and for His name alone,
We receive His grace
To call people, Him to obey;
Coming from their faith.

Servant of the Lord;
Of the gospel, I’m not ashamed;
For salvation, power of God
To those who have faith.
In the gospel find righteousness:
Being right with God.
Turn from sin, and trust Jesus Christ.
By faith, live in Him.
Servant of the Lord;
Of the gospel, I’m not ashamed;
For salvation, power of God
To those who have faith.
