The Lord Jesus endured everything His servants would also endure after Him. The marks on our body, soul and spirit are what confirm that we are His servants.
…for I bear in my body the marks of the Lord Jesus. Galatians 6.17
What are the marks of the Lord Jesus in His servants?
The desert, the loneliness, the injustices, the spiritual castration, the surrender of one’s will, the whippings to the flesh… these are the marks of Christ in His servants. Everything He endured, His servants will endure as well.
We must examine ourselves at all times to see what our reactions are to the marks of Christ in us: if we react and are expelled from His Body, or if we trust and are honored by Him (John 12.26).
Those who have not been willing to endure the marks of a servant of the Lord Jesus are expelled from the Body of the Lord: SERVE and nothing else!
