4 qualities that a servant should have

Faith because we can’t please God without it, or achieve anything. Faith is trust in God, obedience; faith is much more than a passive belief, we demonstrate our faith through our actions, through the way we live.

“But without faith it is impossible to please Him, for he who comes to God must believe that He is, and that He is a rewarder of those who diligently seek Him.” Hebrews 11:6

Fear – to fear God is not to feel afraid because it would make us flee from Him, it would cause torment. To fear God is to respect Him for who He is, to have reverence, to obey His word, to flee from evil. The fear of God is what sustains the servant; when the servant loses the fear, he stops being a servant and his life is doomed to failure. Fear is the foundation of the Christian life.

“The fear of the LORD is the beginning of knowledge, But fools despise wisdom and instruction.” Proverbs 1:7

Humility – the humble person is always willing to learn and accept her mistakes. Where there’s arrogance or pride there can’t be humility.
True humility is not hypocrite or fake. Whoever is humble always grows; whoever is proud stagnates, deceived by the false position of superiority.

“God resists the proud, but gives grace to the humble”. 1 Peter 5:5

Sincerity – God cannot work in a heart where there is no sincerity. Although God knows our thoughts and intentions, He wants us to be sincere when we talk to Him. Sincerity is part of the character of God's servant.

He who walks with integrity walks securely, But he who perverts his ways will become known”. Prov.10:9

So girls, what do you have to say about these qualities??

Dear Mrs Tania

Indeed if a person call herself a true Christian, then she must have the qualities above otherwise she will never be a stable Christian.
