Simeon Peter, a *servant and apostle of Jesus Christ, To those who have obtained a faith of equal standing with ours by the righteousness of our God and Savior Jesus Christ: – 2 Peter 1:1
When Peter introduced himself in this letter, he stated that he was a servant first and an apostle second. I think that’s very important to see.
As followers of Christ, we are all servants of Jesus first. We may serve in various ways as Peter served as an apostle.
This is important because it serves as the foundation from which we serve the Lord and others. That means, we should seek to serve in the various ways that may be needed.
It’s easy to disregard lesser tasks when your foundational understanding of who we are isn’t a servant of Jesus. May your identity be a servant who seeks to serve Jesus in the capacity and gifts and needs that come up around you.
For though I am free from all, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win more of them. – 1 Corinthians 9:19
May this be so!
