A Servant?

There is only one way to become a servant, or slave, as the Bible describes it: by relinquishing. A slave has no rights, owns no property, is completely controlled by his master. The moment I pretend to be someone or lay claim to something, I cease to be a servant. I cannot become an acceptable servant until I have experienced the self-denial of Philippians 2:5-8, and I cannot experience that until I am willing to follow the One who denied Himself everything in order to give us everything.
