The greatest is one who is a true servant—one who truly cares for and helps others! Notice that it was the Son of God, Jesus of Nazareth, who took little children up in His arms and who stooped over to wash the feet of His disciples. You can read about that foot-washing service in John 13. It was Jesus who sacrificed His life for us all! As the Apostle Paul wrote: “But God demonstrates His own love toward us, in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us” (Romans 5:8).
Jesus’ example was one of service, sacrifice and love. “For if when we were enemies we were reconciled to God through the death of His Son, much more, having been reconciled, we shall be saved by His life” (Romans 5:10).
Whatever position we may hold in this life, we will never find true success unless we have an attitude of godly service toward others. One of the measures of true success is the degree of godly service one is willing to give. False success depends on the get principle, the standard carnal condition—or “default characteristic”—of human nature.
When has Rod Meredith or any of the leadership in the Living Church of God ever been a true servant leader? They certainly practice none of the things that are exemplary of Jesus as mentioned in the first paragraph.
What has the leadership of the LCG ever sacrificed? From Rod Meredith, down through all of his children, to the leaders in Charlotte, none of them have scarfed anything. Its the membership that is expected to sacrifice. to sell their homes, refinance their businesses, cash in retirement funds and send it in for the "final push." A "final push" that Meredith has been declare for 60 years now.
Will Richard Ames, Rod Meredith, Jim Meredith, Rod McNair and other leaders in Charlotte sell their fancy homes and sacrifice for once in their lives? Will they actually become servants of the brethren? We all know the answer to that. Its a resounding NO!
