Serving the King

“Now I was cupbearer to the king.” Nehemiah 1:11

One of my most favorite books in the Bible is Nehemiah. This last verse in the first chapter happens to give the job title of this man. Reading it again, a thought came to mind; we are the cupbearers of the King! His word says, “Whoever believes in me, as the scripture has said, ‘Out of his heart will flow rivers of living water.” (John 7:38). Our heart is the cup that is filled with His living water and everywhere we go we have something to serve. Friends, our world is in desperate need of “water” that will satisfy thirsty souls. Many things are advertised, but they do not quench the thirst. So, may we go about our days, wherever the Lord would have us, filled with living water and serving our King.
