"The Qualifications for Servanthood" (Excerpt)

The primary qualification for servanthood is Godly character. Perhaps, the greatest indicator of Godly character is humility: a deep reverence for God that causes one to surrender their will to the Father’s will, no matter the cost.  Godly character is also manifested when the disciple has a growing and intimate relationship with the Lord. It is through that relationship that one receives their "call" to service within the kingdom of  God. Another qualification for becoming a servant of the Lord is availability: a willingness to serve the lost and/or the people of God. As a believer becomes more spiritually mature, that believer becomes more “fit” for use in the kingdom of God.
