Do you want to stand out? Then step down.
Be a servant. If you pull yourself up, you’ll
get the wind knocked out of you.
But if you’re content to simply be yourself, your life
will count for plenty.
Matthew 23:11-12 (MSG)
I really love this. To stand out in the world, we do crazy
things to get people’s attention. The world teaches us to
push whoever is in our way, we are taught that the other
person doesn’t matter, we are taught to tear down anyone
who is better than us, steal, cheat and a whole host of other
things must be implemented if we are to stand out but that
is just not true!
To stand out we must be willing to step down and …….
BE A SERVANT!!
Standing out is about putting others first. It is about sacrificing
what you want to help someone else. It is about serving others.
God will make a way for you when you truly stand out!
Jesus is the King of Kings and Lord of Lords and yet He came to
serve. He didn’t force people to worship Him but instead He came
to serve. He didn’t seek the limelight. Standing out requires
humbleness. There is no way you can truly stand out if you
The true heart of a believer always wants to serve.
The limelight is not the most important thing in his or her life.
Pleasing God is the most important thing.
Will you truly stand out for God today?
