Ephesians 6:5-9
“Servants, be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ; Not with eyeservice, as menpleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart; With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free. And, ye masters, do the same things unto them, forbearing threatening: knowing that your Master also is in heaven; neither is there respect of persons with him.”

Matthew Henry explains in his commentary on this passage of Scripture, that the duty of a servant can be summed up in one word: obedience. Servants are to reverence those over them, such as their masters and leaders. Pretending to have obedience is wrong and shows a lack of sincerity. A servant’s loyalty and sincerity can be tested when their master’s eyes aren’t watching them; what they do then will tell what is in their heart. God is looking for true servants.

A servant forgoes all of his rights to the master; a servant is bound to the master’s requirements. So must it be with us and our Master, the Lord Jesus Christ. There should be no question in the level of our sincerity in our servanthood, but a relinquishing of all of our rights and our own wills, and acceptance to His will.

We all want to be servants of the Lord. We want to be better at our walk with God. To do that, we must practice true servanthood. Be a servant that lives the Word of God from the heart, not just with “eyeservice”. Do all that you do in your Christian walk as to the Lord, and not to please men. Serve with singleness of heart, persevering and working hard. This is what a good servant must do.

Live as a true servant.

And when a man knows you're right, nothing can move you. A man don't look like Moses did, this way and that way. A true servant of God never has to look this way or that way. He don't care, the frown of a enemy or the pleasing applaud of some man. He enjoys the fellowship of the Lord God Who sent him, if he knows where he's standing. He don't care whether his enemies like it or whether his friends smile on him. That doesn't make a bit of difference to a true servant of Christ. He's got a job to do, and he don't have to look and see. "What do you think about it? Is this pleasing you?" He looks that way and enjoys the Presence of the living God. That's the trouble today; we have to see if our denomination believes it. God have mercy. If I ever get to that place, I'll fold the Bible and leave the field. You want to please God, got a commission.
