Called to Servant-hood
Let this mind be in you which was also in Christ Jesus: who being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: but made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant….Philippians 2:5-7
I am calling My people to their knees; I am calling them back into servant-hood.
Yes, I have adorned you in royalty, I have clothed you in My finery and bestowed upon you all the fittings of those who are called to dwell in the house of the King. And for this reason I am asking you to disrobe for a season and clothe yourselves in humility and repentance. I call down the strongholds of pomposity and pride that have sought to pollute My bride with their illusions. They have stopped her ears until she could no longer hear the cries of My needy in her streets.
My bride, we walk together hand in hand on this earth and while we serve together, I require you to reflect Me and I am not removed from and I do not distance Myself from the humble places.
I walk beside you in servant’s clothes and you are covered by My royal cloak of compassion.
My bride, I have called you to serve in the streets before I exalt you. You are called to kneel at the feet of beggars. I died on the Cross to save you, I require you to die to yourself on your knees to serve them.
I am calling you to servant-hood.
