Under Gods Command

Romans 1:1 Paul, a servant of Christ Jesus, called to be an apostle and set apart for the gospel of God. 

Paul humbly calls himself a servant of Jesus Christ and an apostle (“one who is sent”). For Roman citizen – which Paul was – to choose to be a servant was unthinkable.  But Paul chose to be completely dependent on and obedient to his beloved Master.

 Lets bring it home:  What is our attitude toward Christ, our Master?  Our willingness to serve and obey Jesus Christ enables us to be useful and usable servants to do work for him – work that really matters.  Obedience begins as we renounce other masters, identify ourselves with Jesus, discover his will and live according to it, and consciously turn away from conflicting interest, even if these interests have been important to us in the past.
