SERVANTS OF THE LORD.
"…the servant of the Lord must not be quarrelsome, but kindly towards all... qualified to teach, keeping himself restrained under evil, instructing with mildness those not favourably disposed…" (From 2 Tim 2:24,25 NEB & NWT).
SERVANTS OF THE LORD SLAVE FOR ONE ANOTHER.
"All who wear the yoke of slavery must count their own masters worthy of all respect, so that the Name of God and the Christian teaching are not brought into disrepute. If the masters are believers, the slaves must not respect them any less for being their Christian brothers. Quite the contrary; they must be all the better servants because those who receive the benefit of their service are one with them in faith and love." (1 Tim 6:1,2 NEB).
"…give entire obedience to your earthly masters, not merely with an outward show of service, to curry favour with men, but with single-mindedness, out of reverence for the Lord. Whatever you are doing, put your whole heart into it, as if you were doing it for the Lord and not for men, knowing that there is a Master who will give you your heritage as a reward for your service. Christ is the Master whose slaves you must be." (Col 3:22-24 NEB).
Christ said: "If anyone serves me, he must follow me; where I am, my servant will be. Whoever serves me will be honoured by my Father." (John 12:26 NEB).
"And you people will again certainly see the distinction between a righteous one and a wicked one, between one serving God and one who has not served Him." (Mal 3:18).
THE REWARD FOR LOYAL SERVANTS OF GOD,
"…no weapon made to harm you shall prevail, and you shall rebut every charge brought against you. Such is the fortune of the servants of the Lord; their vindication comes from Me. This is the very word of the Lord." (Isaiah 54:17 NEB).
WHY GOD ACCEPTS SERVICE FROM US.
"…but, as slaves of Christ, do wholeheartedly the Will of God. Give the cheerful service of those who serve the Lord, not men. For you know that whatever good each man may do, slave or free, will be repaid him by the Lord." (From Eph 6:6-8 NEB).
