A Heart Of Service

Good morning! Welcome to Partaker’s Think Spot. I am Regina from South Carolina in the United States. It is my honor and privilege to be here with you this morning. I thank you for taking your time to be with us.



Do you have service in your heart? Do you have a heart of service? When someone mentions serving another what emotion does the question evoke in you? Did you realize that service is found 132 times in 116 verses in the KJV Bible? And the word “servant” is found 491 times in 452 verses in the KJV.

Today I want to focus on just one of those many verses.



Mark 9:35 And he sat down and called the twelve, and said unto them, if man desire to be first, the same shall be last of all, and servant of all.



With the words “servant” and “service” being found so frequently in Scripture it has to make us realize that this is something that is very important to God. During creation week when He created man, He created Adam, before He created Adam, with each thing that He created He said, “It is good. It is good.” But when He created Adam, although it was good that He created Adam, He said. “It is not good for man to be alone.”

So, that tells us right there that we have to have connections with other people. Our health tells us that we have to have connections with other people. Some of the most depressed people are shut-ins who can’t get out to be with other people, who have limited interaction with other people. And so, it is important for us to not just be self-serving but to be serving to others.



I am reading a book, “Thou Shall Prosper” by Rabbi Daniel Lapin, and he has so much wisdom in this book that it is just profound, and I would like to make a couple of quotes from this book, if I may. One is, “If you cannot wrap yourself around the notion that other humans are worthy of your committed service and that you are not diminished but are instead elevated by providing that service, you will never excel at what you do. There is nothing shameful in being a servant or a people who serve.

Only humans worship God and only humans serve their fellow humans. Not out of blind animal instinct but out of love, altruism, and a commitment to an idea just like those firefighters on September 11, 2001. Giving of one’s self to another is at the core of what it means to be human.” And it’s at the core of everything you do; your quest for career success, your quest for ministerial success is all the core of giving service to another!



As I close this morning, I would just like to ask you, where do you stand with serving others? Do you have a lot of friends? Do you offer your services to them? Maybe you’re in business and you provide a service for your customers. Or you’re in a church that you do some work for...there are a lot of avenues that we can serve others, even telephone ministry is providing service to another. It’s giving them a call letting them know that you are thinking about them. For some it’s easy, they just have a servant’s heart so it’s easy for them to give of themselves to another. For others it’s not so easy. But it’s something that we work for because we know that it is something that delights God.

Prayer


Let’s bow our heads: Father I thank you for the message that you have provided this morning. I thank you for explaining to us the importance of being a servant. I thank you that we have the opportunity to serve someone else. I pray that we count it as a privilege and an honor and that we realize that it brings glory and honor to you.

Father, when we have a difficult time serving someone or when we just don’t feel like we are in the mood to do it that day, I just pray the Holy Spirit comes and speaks to us and gently nudges us and that we continue in that servant’s walk that You have brought us to. I thank you for each one that is listening this morning because that means that they chose to set aside some time to hear your word. And I pray that this word encourages them and if they haven’t been serving others, if they just felt like they were too busy then I pray that they will find time, 5 minutes here or there, 10 minutes here or there; whatever it takes; whatever You desire for them to do, Lord, impress it upon them. May Your will be done.

I ask that you bless each one this week, bless them abundantly and may they have an abundant life, an abundant life which serves others. Father, I just thank you. I just come to you with a heart of gratitude for this opportunity, for being a part of Partakers.

And I ask you to bless Brother Dave as he puts all of this together and he encourages each of us along. I just thank you, Lord. I thank you for the tremendous blessings for the doors you are opening for this ministry. I just pray that the harvest comes in for you. That you are blessed through all of this. And father, I just ask you now to hear our prayers and answer our prayers so that all may know that YOU ARE GOD.

And I ask you now, father, to just love on us, just love on us a little bit more. Blessed are you, Adonai, God who hears and answers our prayers. Blessed are you, Adonai, who gives us the opportunity to serve others and serve you. Blessed are you, Adonai, God who provides for all of us. Amen.

Thank you for being with us today. I pray that you will come back each day this week and be blessed by a new message and may this help carry you through your week. Make your week much more meaningful, much more successful, and help you to be a blessing to others in the process. Thank you again. Good bye.

WOW Word 53 - New Nature

WOW Word 53 - New Nature!


Today, Alphy the WOWChurch cat shares with us about our New Nature - what it is, what it is not, who, why, where? Come see and hear Alphy the WOWChurch Cat explain more!!


“What shall we say, then? Shall we go on sinning, so that grace may increase? By no means! We are those who have died to sin; how can we live in it any longer?

Or don’t you know that all of us who were baptised into Christ Jesus were baptised into his death? We were therefore buried with him through baptism into death in order that, just as Christ was raised from the dead through the glory of the Father, we too may live a new life.

For if we have been united with him in a death like his, we will certainly also be united with him in a resurrection like his. For we know that our old self was crucified with him so that the body ruled by sin might be done away with, that we should no longer be slaves to sin – because anyone who has died has been set free from sin. (Romans 6:1-7)

POD - Psalm 123

Psalm 123

A song for pilgrims ascending to Jerusalem.

To you I do lift up my eyes,
you who sit in the heavens.



Behold, as the eyes of servants look to the hand of their master,
as the eyes of a maid to the hand of her mistress;
so our eyes look to Yahweh,
our God, until he has mercy on us.



Have mercy on us, Yahweh, have mercy on us,
for we have endured much contempt.



Our soul is exceedingly filled with the scoffing of those who are at ease,
with the contempt of the proud.

Experience The Blessings

Good Morning! Welcome to Partaker’s Think Spot! I am Regina. I will be your host for today and I am from South Carolina in the United States. I would like to bring you a warm, humble welcome and thank you for being with us.

Receiving from God in faith the answer with perfect assurance that it has been given, is not necessarily the possession of the gift we have asked for. At times there may be a long interval before we have it physically. In other cases we may enjoy at once what we have received. When the interval is long we have need of faith and patience. We need faith to rejoice in the assurance of the answer bestowed and to begin to act upon that answer though for the present there is no visible proof of its presence. We can apply this principle to our prayer for the power to be faithful intercessors. Hold fast to the divine assurance that as surely as we believe, we receive. Rejoice in the certainty of an answered prayer. The more we praise God for it, the sooner will the experience come. We may begin at once to pray for others and the confidence grace will be given to us to pray with more perseverance and more faith than we have done before. If we do not find an immediate increase in our desire to pray, this must not discourage us. We have accepted a spiritual gift by faith; in that faith we are to pray, doubting nothing. We may count upon the Holy Spirit to pray in us, even though it is with groanings which cannot find expression. In due time we shall become conscious of His presence and power.

Wow, what a message! We continue to pray even though we may not see it, we may not know the length of time that it is going to take for us to receive it, but we pray, we consistently pray, we persevere and we believe; and we go ahead and thank God for it. "Thank you, Father for the blessings that you are giving us! Right now, thank you for answering our prayer!"

And you know, He is going to answer it! Remember there are creation power in your thoughts and your words! So, don’t allow that doubt to creep in. Don’t allow it to steal your blessing, to steal your gift from God, to steal your abundant life. When that inner mean voice starts talking to you and trying to put doubt in your head just tell it to go away that you are only listening to the Holy Spirit. Pray and ask God to quiet that inner mean voice and to let his Holy Spirit speak more loudly to you, more clearly to you than you have ever heard before. He will do that. He will allow you to hear Him, to know He is there with you.

I pray that as you move forward this week that you are blessed. I pray that you pray often, if not for yourself then for others but also include yourself. I pray that you have a week of peace, a week of solitude with God, just one on one time with Him. Maybe you can’t do it for the whole week, every second of every day, but you can have your quiet time with Him in the morning or the evening or whenever you do it. Take that time and as you pray, don’t forget to be quiet and listen and allow Him to speak to you during that time. Let’s close now in prayer.

Prayer

Father, I thank you for each one that has come out to be with us this morning, that’s turned us on on their computers. That’s taken the time to receive this word. And I just ask you to bless them in an abundant way. Allow them to feel your presence. Allow them to hear your voice and know without a doubt that it is you speaking to them. I ask you to bring clarity of mind, Lord, and to unplug their ears so that they are able to hear you clearly. I ask you to prompt them and encourage them to pray for others for that is what we are called to do and that is one way that we can love our neighbor as ourself is to pray for them. In Jesus name I pray and ask these things. Amen.

Thank you for joining Partaker’s Think Spot. If you have Twitter, Facebook, Google+, any of the social media share us with them as well. Until next time, this is Regina, have a blessed week!

I pray that you will come back tomorrow and each day this week, and be blessed by the wonderful words that are brought to you. Have a good week.
