Servants Through Whom Others Believe
Posted On November 04, 2016
Professor John Tweeddale reminded students at Reformation Bible College’s chapel on September 8 what it means to be a servant of God. Although this was not his first time speaking at chapel, it was his first time as RBC’s new academic dean. He spoke on 1 Corinthians 3:1–9.
“Here at RBC, we exist to produce servants,” he said. “A servant takes the eyes of the people off themselves and onto Christ and Christ alone.” We all fall into a trap when we transfer our devotion from Christ to one of His servants, be it our professors, pastors, parents, etc.
We are called to follow Christ, to be servants of Christ, because we belong to Him, and as fellow workers we serve together by extending the kingdom of Christ. Professor Tweeddale drove this point home by stating, “As RBC students, more than anything else you belong to God.” He concluded, “If I had one word to leave with you, it would be that I desire you to have a longing to be servants through whom others believe.”
