Kingdom Servants

::

“... just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve,"

Matthew 20'28.

::

“... those who have served well as Servants

obtain for themselves a good standing

and great boldness in the faith which is in Christ Jesus,”

1 Timothy 3’13.

Kingdom Servants - the ministry of Servant. Although Believers are exhorted to serve one another there is such a thing as the ministry of Servant.

However, while serving one another applies generally, the ministry of Servant is different.

The English word servant  comes from the Greek word diakonos. Traditionally, most English New Testament translations render it as deacon not servant.

The related verb in the Greek is diakonia and translates to serve and other like things as distribution, service, ministry or minister (Strong’s Concordance).

Jesus changed the basic nature of every life activity and serving is one of them in that Believers serve from a place of freedom:

"For you, brethren, have been called to freedom;

only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh,

but through love serve one another," Galatians 5'13.

Christ has made us completely free and it is in His love that we are to serve - as He did, not taking advantage of anyone.

Kingdom Servants are Believers who have put themselves forward for appointment to serve in conjunction with the Kingdom Elders.
