A. GOD’S TRAINING OF SONS IS TO BRING THEM TO A PLACE OF maturity where we will walk in kingly authority like the LION, rule and operate from a position of far above like the EAGLES, develop a servant heart like an OX and be in touch with our HUMANITY just like JESUS; King (John 18:37), Servant (Luke 22:27), Man (Matt 4:4) and operated from above (John 3:13, 6:33).

B. THE OX IS IDENTIFIED WITH
1. STRENGTH (Psalm 92:10, Proverbs 14:4)
2. LABOUR, FIELD WORK (1Kingds 19:19, Isaiah 30:24, numbers 7:6)
3. SACRIFICE (Proverbs 7:22, 1 Kings 19:21, Numbers 7:17)
4. SERVICE (Job 39:9)

C. SONS ARE BONDSERVANTS
Bondservants are people who are free but willingly choose to become slaves because of love (Deut 15:12-18, Ex 21:1-6).

Note: The status of the new testament believer is that of a son NOT a servant (John 15:15, John 20:17, Gal 4:7). But Sons make themselves slaves or servants of Christ because of Love. Paul called himself a bondservant of Christ (2 Cor 4:5, Phil 1:1, 1 Peter 2:16). We are born as sons but we will be judged as servants (Mt 25:19, Lk 17:37)

D. THE OX ATTITUDE OF SONS
1. They Labour in the field
(1 Cor 3:18, 1cor 15:58, Gal 4:19, 1Thess 5:12, 1Tim 5:17)
Note: Love is proved by labour (1 Thess 1:3, Heb 6:10, Gen 29:20, 1cor 8:3)
a. Labourers are needed (Lk 10:2, Mt 20:1)
b. Labourers are paid (Mt 20:8, Lk 10:7, 1Tim 5:18, 1cor 9:7)

2. They Obey without complaining (Prov 7:22, Phil 2:14, Phil 2:5-7)
3. They serve without recognition or applause (Lk 17:10).
4. They are obedient unto death (Jhn 21:18-19, Phil 2:5-8
5. They gladly spend and are spent (2cor 12:15, 1Jhn 3:16)

E. THE BLESSEDNESS OF BEING AN OX(SERVANT)
A. Servants are a special class. To be a servant of God is a high rank
1. Moses (Num 12:7)
2. Caleb (Num 14:24)
3. Joshua (Josh 24:29)
4. David (2 Sam 7:5)
5. Daniel (Dan 6:20)
6. JESUS (Acts 3:13, Acts 4:30)
7. Paul (Col 1:7, Col 4:7)

B. Servants are greater (Mk 10:43)
C. Servants are partners with the Lord (Jhn 2:6-9)
D. Servants are vessels and channels of His power – Jhn 6:10-11(the bread actually multiplied in the hands of the disciples)
E. Servants enjoy protection, preservation and immunity (Ex 23:25, Mal 3:17)
F. Servants enjoy prosperity (Job 36:11)
E. Servants enjoy guidance. They know secrets. Wise men can miss but servants will be guided (Mt 2:2)

BIG QUESTION: WILL HE FIND YOU SERVING? LUKE 12:43.

THE SERVANTS PLEDGE
1. To serve in season and out of season.
2. To serve at every stage or level.
