These articles are based on the teachings given on FEB 27, 2016 at The ETERNAL LIVING WORD Church: SERVANT-LEADERS Conference - STUDIES IN THE LIFE OF PETER.
WHY DOES GOD NEED SERVANTS? HE IS ALMIGHTY. HE DOESN'T NEED THEM, BUT HE WANTS SERVANTS. WHY?
HE ISN'T INTERESTED IN 'LORDING' OVER SERVANTS AS A TYRANNICAL GOD OF WRATH BUT RATHER, THE LORD DESIRES SERVANTS, WHO WHILE SERVING HIM, WILL LEARN OF THE LORD WHO IS HIMSELF The SERVANT! (the GOSPEL of MATTHEW reveals Christ Who is King; The GOSPEL of MARK reveals Christ Who is Servant. The KING Who is The SERVANT).
40 And he cometh unto the disciples, and findeth them asleep, and saith unto Peter, What, could ye not watch with me one hour?
41 Watch and pray, that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is willing, but the flesh is weak.
