Humbled By Humility

In this day and age it is very rare to have the opportunity to meet someone who is truly a "Humble Servant" In my experience, most bishops I have met seem to thrive on being served as opposed to being a servant. They bask in the glory of having Armor-bearers, entourages and a large loyal following of "yes men" (and women) at their beckon call. They crave the attention and respect of not just those they are called to serve but those they are called to serve with. The elite College of Bishops.

 

The last thing I expected to see this Bishop-elect doing on the day of his official consecration was serving. I watched him setting up keyboards and moving chairs. He carried his own garments into the church. On the day that most would be catered to hand and foot Bishop-elect Alvin Moses was humbly serving. I was amazed as I watched this man of God serving his associate pastor. I watched as he carefully knelt and painstakingly fastened the many buttons on the cassock of this young preacher. I watched even when those who committed to be in attendance didn't show, how this man covered them in love.  At the close of the ordination he then greeted and loved on every person he could with a huge hug and a smile that lit the entire sanctuary. I for one was humbled by your humility. A lesson I will not soon forget. God bless you Bishop Alvin Moses. You are a man after God's own heart. You Inspired!
