The Creator’s Cloaked Operative

by ggerhauser

Morning Thought: Would you believe there’s a power greater than the ravenous hurricane, thirsty fire and merciless flood? A force that is larger than man’s most elaborate nuclear weapon? It’s quiet, subversive and mostly unrecognized. It’s God’s secret agent carrying out untold missions. What’s the name of this cloaked operative? Servanthood. Servanthood has ushered in the greatest revolution of history. “A dispute also arose among them as to which of them was considered to be greatest. Jesus said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. But you are not to be like that. Instead, the greatest among you should be like the youngest, and the one who rules like the one who serves. For who is greater, the one who is at the table or the one who serves? Is it not the one who is at the table? But I am among you as one who serves.” (Luke 22:24-27 NIV)
