Happy Servants

The Happy Servant, the blessed servant is the one whom the Lord finds doing his job when he shows up. Isn’t that always the case? When you are doing what you are supposed to be doing, you are happy, your parents are happy, your Lord is happy.
         We are just such happy servants. We are seated at this Table and remembering the Lord’s death until He comes. If He walked in on us right now, what would we do? How would we feel? We would be most glad because He would be most glad.
Here it is, almost 2000 years since His death, and we gather each Lord’s Day to remember Him. But we don’t just remember His death. We receive the life of His body and blood. We are filled with His Holy Spirit so that we can live in Him and He in us. We work out the new life that He has worked into us.
         If the Lord walks in us, what would we do? Well, first of all, I would sit down with you. The Lord Jesus would take over the service and He would serve us bread and wine. This would make us His happy servants.
