Do not mistake or misjudge me
I acknowledge the essence of service
That each man has to offer
With his heart, mind and strength
To Him who is Lord of all
(This is truly why we live on earth)
But here in men do wrong
When they always work as slaves
And fail to realize that they are
The loved sons of the Love God.
They are religious
And know God only as ‘Master’
They never see that they are sons
And all the words in their dictionaries
Start and end in ‘servant’ and ‘service’.
We must labour while we live on earth
But service is secondary to worship
So in your walk and work with God
Know that you are first, sons of God
And that you carry His mind in you
Which is to please the Lord.
So that as you fellowship with the Father
You’ll also be open to run His errands
To bring His message to your brethren
Not as slaves, but as sons on errand.
Luke 15:25-32, Matt. 4:10
