#006 Podcast – The Servant – Part 1

Hi and welcome to Part 1 of our series on The Servant. As the series goes along we will definitely be looking into the what, how and why of the church’s service to the Lord.  However, today we start with discovering more of Christ The Servant as displayed in a shadow and type found in God’s creation. Everything in this Christian walk must start with Christ, He who has the preeminence in all things. Join with us as we gaze into the humility of our Lord Jesus, the greatest Servant there ever was, is and will ever be. As a result we discover together the way to serve Him, to the glory of God the Father. The servant heart of our Lord is a profoundly beautiful aspect of who He is and is the essence of His nature and His person, and the nature and relationship of the entire Godhead.

Scripture References

Isaiah 42:1 “Here is my servant, whom I uphold, my chosen one in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will bring justice to the nations. …

Matthew 12:18 “Here is my servant whom I have chosen, the one I love, in whom I delight; I will put my Spirit on him, and he will proclaim justice to the nations. …

Hebrews 2:9 But we see Jesus who was made a little lower than the angels…

Phil 2:5-11 Your attitude should be the same as that of Christ Jesus; Who being in very nature God, did not consider equality with God something to be grasped but made himself nothing, taking the very nature of a bond-servant being made in human likeness. And being found in appearance as a man, he humbled himself and became obedient to death – even death on a cross! Therefore God has exalted Him to the highest place, and gave him the name that is above every name, that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow , in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father.

Ps 89:1-6 I will sing of the Lord’s great love forever with my mouth I will make your faithfulness known through all generations. I will declare that your love stands firm forever, that you established your faithfulness in heaven itself. You said “I have made a covenant with my chosen one, I have sworn to David my servant, I will establish your line forever and make your throne firm through all generations”. The heavens praise your wonders O Lord, your faithfulness too in the assembly of the holy ones. For who in the skies above can compare with the Lord? Who is like the Lord among the heavenly beings?

Ps 89:37 I will not lie to David that his line will continue forever and his throne endure before me like the sun; It will be established forever like the moon, the faithful witness in the sky

Rev 1:5 …and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead and the ruler of the kings of the earth.

Rev 21:23 The city does not need the sun or the moon to shine on it, for the glory of God gives it light and the Lamb is its lamp

Matthew 11:29 Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart

Romans 1:1 … Paul, a bond-servant of Christ Jesus, called as an apostle, set apart for the gospel of God, …

2 Cor 5:14  For the love which Christ has presses on me from all sides, holding me to one end and prohibiting me from considering any other, wrapping itself around me in tenderness, giving me an impelling motive, having brought me to this conclusion, namely, that One died on behalf of all, therefore all died, and that He also died on behalf of all in order that those who are living no longer are living for themselves but for the One who died on their behalf and instead of them, and was raised.(K Wuest)

Act 13:2  While they were ministering to the Lord and fasting, the Holy Spirit said, “Set apart for Me Barnabas and Saul for the work to which I have called them.”

  1. Love this. Reflecting and receiving the light, the life and the love of Christ. Thank you Derek and Donna for all your hard work in producing these wonderful podcasts for us to receive. Tender morsels indeed. Love you guys.

  2. While world governments strive over “intelligence”, out of a tiny kingdom outpost in Australia, under the government and administration of the Holy Spirit, secrets from the very throne room of God were revealed and expressed through the bride of Christ. Thank you both for reflecting the fellowship of the Father and His Son, Jesus Christ, to us. This is what makes The Ancient Pathways podcast so incredibly rare and uniquely special.

  3. Hi Julio and Angie

    Thank you so much for your kind and encouraging comments. His generosity of Spirit is truly heard, seen in and received through you both.

    Much love to you in the Lord!
