A Servant Of God
"James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ, to the twelve tribes which are scattered abroad, greeting." James 1:1. James has chosen to serve both God and Christ. If God is served, then Christ is served. If Christ is served, then God is served. Jesus and God are one. Jesus came from heaven as God and took upon Himself human flesh. James wants no mistake about his allegiance. Neither should we. As a servant, James conformed to the will of His Master. He followed His teaching and His example of life. As a servant of Christ, one is no longer a servant of the devil and sin. As a servant, James did the work of the Lord. If we have surrendered ourselves to Christ, we have become His servants. As a servant, we promote the gospel, as we live according to the teachings of the gospel. As a servant, we have an interest in those that are away from God. We seek to teach and share with them the good news of salvation. We as Christ "go about doing good." No greater Master can be served than God and the Lord Jesus Christ. Let us serve them with the full devotion of our being all the days of our life.
