The Chistian Servant


What a humbling journey it is to follow Christ. It’s so true that often the biggest obstacle to hearing the quiet voice of the Holy Spirit guiding and prompting us is our pride. The day we think we have nothing to learn, is the day we stop growing and maturing as a Christian. I feel a natural and highly effective way of maturing is being humbled by our Lord. It can even come through those are perceived as less gifted or spiritually mature. It can even come through those who are not Christian
