I was studying one night and God laid on my heart to study Phillip the Evangelist. I thought there was not much about him but there is one thing that is evident about him and is described in Acts. Phillip was first a Deacon. This is the point of what I want toexpand on and that’s Phillip the true servant of God. Lets first define Deacon it means one who serves. The Greek for deacon is diakonia defined as Christian minister. Well since we have a definition lets ask ourselves some questions 1. Would you be a servant? 2. Would you know God’s word? 3. Would you put Gods word in practice in your life? Now let’s keep these question in mind when we ask God I want to serve you. Now a deacon has the same responsibilities a servant of the Lord Jesus Christ. These qualifications are found in 1Timothy 3:8-13 and 1 Timothy 1:19. This servant must be respectable (Phil 4:11, 1 Peter 1:17) sincere, not a drinker of wine and tested. A servant must be sincere free from deceit. My favorite which God does daily is tested test the reliability of the servant. Now that we want to be Deacon or servant we have some qualifications 1. A good reputation 2. Full of the Holy Spirit. 3. Apt to teach 4. A man of faith servants need to be men of energy and courage for faith. To see this operation in the life of a true servant we see a Godly life 1Timothy 3:8-13, A firm grasp on sound doctrine Acts 6:9, Advance of Church unity Acts 6:5, The presence of deacons or servants should advance evangelism. Servant must always be busy to do service or serve. I see this as major quality and character of any person saved by the Lord Jesus Christ. This is a life of a bondservant, a deacon, lay person, armor bearer, many more terms but I believe T.F. Torrance sums it up really It is only in this Jesus that we learn what diakonia really is, the loving service inMercy that looks for no reward beyond the knowledge that we do what is commanded of us and looks for no thanks from those to whom mercy is extended, but it is only because this Jesus has made our cause His very own, sharing our existence in servitude and sharing with us His own life of love, that we may and can engage in this kind of diakonia in Him.
