Servants are to Serve

Each Tuesday the preachers in the area around Arusha and other interested men gather together to have a Leadership Study.  This week Noah Msuya did a great job teaching us.  His topic was servanthood. He was pointing out that we have to live our lives as servants, showing us that Paul and Peter both lived their lives as servants.

"A person who is a servant, serves others."

Msuya used as his text Romans 12 and showed us how we as leaders should be an example to all those around us. They should see our holy lives, living according to the mind of God. We should serve others and not seek to be self serving.

Psalm 37:1-11
A Psalm of David. 

Do not fret because of evildoers,
Be not envious toward wrongdoers. 
For they will wither quickly like the grass
And fade like the green herb. 
Trust in the LORD and do good;
Dwell in the land and cultivate faithfulness. 
Delight yourself in the LORD;
And He will give you the desires of your heart. 
  Commit your way to the LORD,
Trust also in Him, and He will do it. 
He will bring forth your righteousness as the light
And your judgment as the noonday. 
  Rest in the LORD and wait patiently for Him;
Do not fret because of him who prospers in his way,
Because of the man who carries out wicked schemes. 
Cease from anger and forsake wrath;
Do not fret; it leads only to evildoing. 
For evildoers will be cut off,
But those who wait for the LORD, they will inherit the land. 
Yet a little while and the wicked man will be no more;
And you will look carefully for his place and he will not be there. 
  But the humble will inherit the land
And will delight themselves in abundant prosperity. 
We were taught that we need to remain faithful, serving one another, even when we face adversity and apparent unfairness. The Lord will bless those who remain faithful to Him.

All were uplifted by Msuya's lesson, it is a real blessing working with such talented and faithful men.

“Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father who is in heaven. 
Matt 5:16
