Luke 22:25-27. – Does “serve me” – serve me well?

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- how deceptively powerful the world is at shaping me, or how easily I can walk away from my true self and be shaped by my false identity. “Serve me” seems to be my mantra, when the true me is a servant.

[25] Jesus said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles lord it over them; and those who exercise authority over them call themselves Benefactors. [26] 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. [27] 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 16:9, 13 – Kingdom investment strategy

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- it is critical that I have a clear strategy around wealth, otherwise I will be seduced into servitude.

Luke 16:9, 13 TPT

[9] It is important that you use the wealth of this world to demonstrate your friendship with God by winning friends and blessing others…..It is impossible for a person to serve two masters at the same time. You will be forced to love one and reject the other. One master will be despised and the other will have your loyal devotion. It is no different with God and the wealth of this world. You must enthusiastically love one and definitively reject the other.”

Here is the revelation that is shaping my life today- I know my enemy and his ways.

1 John 2:15-17 TPT

[15] Don’t set the affections of your heart on this world or in loving the things of the world. The love of the Father and the love of the world are incompatible. [16] For all that the world can offer us-the gratification of our flesh, the allurement of the things of the world, and the obsession with status and importance-none of these things come from the Father but from the world. [17] This world and its desires are in the process of passing away, but those who love to do the will of God live forever.
