Most of our lives w invest in self and go out of our way to serve ourselves. The world says we wastes topo much of our efforts on others, caring for them and working for them, while neglecting our own comforts. On the other hand, we host events to honor those who selflessly serve others even to the point of giving their own lives. Which is it? Selfless service or a narcissistic life where even our service is motivated by self interests. Jesus Christ is the Ultimate Example of a servant. Jesus is the Tireless Servant of God and Man. When God stepped off His throne and entered our space, He made Himself of no reputation and took upon Himself the form of a servant.
We are encouraged by the apostle Paul to have the same attitude. When a person begins to understand their purpose, they may mistakenly think they are called to be part of some earth-shattering event. That may be true for few, but most of us find our significance in insignificant service.

Donkey Duty with Jesus. Servanthood is not about performing to earn something from God or productivity to impress people. It is about the character and nature of Christ being formed in you and being expressed through you, You are saved by grace but crafted in Christ to walk in good works. (Ephesians 2:8-10). You fulfill His purpose as you are one with Him – He in you and you in Him. Donkeys are burden bearers laboring together with the Greatest Servant of all, Our Lord Jesus Christ.
Let’s be clear from the start: I am not talking about fire flies, those littles insects that glow at night. And I am not talking about starting natural fires, although I make several illustrations about natural fires. Arson is a crime. An arsonist is a person who sets destructive fires. They have an addiction or an agenda for vengeance or financial gain.\This book is about [people who are filled with the Holy Spirit fire and have a passion for others to be touched by it. I am calling these people Fire Bugs for Jesus. In this book I will give stories and examples of good fire and bad fire, and mysterious fire. Jesus Christ is the Baptizer in the Holy Spirit and fire. In fact our God is a consuming fire. (Matthew 3:11; Hebrews 12:29
