Part 3

•The Command

So the conditions have been met, but what do we do? What does it look like to live with a servant’s heart? The command in our passage is clear. Paul says, “complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. Do nothing from selfish ambition or conceit, but in humility count others more significant than yourselves. Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others.” Since you have been saved by grace, extend grace to those around you. Take up a servant’s heart as you fulfill the needs of others. Look out for other’s needs as you count them more significant than yourself. Seek to bring unity with your brothers and sisters.

Having a servant heart can take many forms. Stopping your friends from arguing with one another, saying a kind word to someone who is feeling down, or fulfilling a basic need for someone in a tough situation are all examples for how to live with a servant’s heart. If you are wondering how to respond to a specific situation, remember the Golden Rule of Luke 6:31, “as you wish that others would do to you, do so to them.” Consider what you wish others would do if you were in that situation, and act accordingly.
