Be Truly Ignorant: Serving in Humility

Lord please make me ignorant. I keep score. I want to be recognized for when I serve, which is only about my ego. Make me ignorant.

Humility is like vapor from my mouth on a cold day. Once I notice it, it disappears.

To be a servant to Christ is to serve so deeply, walk so intimately with the Savior, that it is as natural as breathing. I never notice I am breathing, nor that my heart beats. Service should be just that spontaneous, unaware of self.

I am extremely self-absorbed. It makes my attempts at serving others a farce. Being truly ignorant seems impossible. Ask God. He can make you ignorant. Real humility comes only from the Savior. It is given to those who seek Him with a single heart.

Luke 17:10 So likewise ye, when ye shall have done all those things which are commanded you, say, We are unprofitable servants: we have done that which was our duty to do.

2 Chronicles 7:14 If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Philippians 2:5-8 Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus: 6 Who, being in the form of God, thought it not robbery to be equal with God: 7 But made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men: 8 And being found in fashion as a man, he humbled himself, and became obedient unto death, even the death of the cross
