Moses – Servant of the Lord
Having finished our Bible Studies of the Book of Revelation I started to investigate the quality, which made Moses the Servant of the Lord. Moses has many titles, one that was exclusively for him, except for his assistant Joshua; he was the Servant of the Lord. I have looked at the meaning of the name Moses and looked at one of his fundamental differences; Moses was the meekest person you ever could meet.
What characteristic differentiates Moses from all other Bible Character that the Scriptures describe him as the Servant of the Lord? Moses and his assistant, Joshua, are the only persons the Scriptures referred to as Servant of the Lord, Deuteronomy 34:5; Joshua 1:1, 13. The Scriptures describe Joshua as the Servant of the Lord thrice: Joshua 14:7; 24:29 and Judges 2:8. Later, I shall tell you of a group of people the Bible also calls, Servant of the Lord.

Moses – the Servant of the Lord Must Not Strive
Both Moses and Joshua are called, Servant of the Lord for two main reasons. First, these men are servants of the Lord because they were obedient and did His commands. However, the quality, which differentiates Moses from everyone else, is not mere obedience. Moses had much of a characteristic, which many other men needed. The Scriptures describe Moses as “very meek” and it is this humble trait, which distinguish Moses for all other Biblical Characters, Numbers 12:3. Moses was the humblest person on the earth.
- “And the servant of the Lord must not strive; but be gentle unto all men, apt to teach, patient, In meekness instructing those that oppose themselves; if God peradventure will give them repentance to the acknowledging of the truth; And that they may recover themselves out of the snare of the devil, who are taken captive by him at his will,” 2 Timothy 2:24-26.
In another Bible Study, I explained that every meek person is gentle. The Scripture immediately above explains the fundamentals of the Servant of the Lord. The first prerequisite for being a Servant of the Lord, is to “be gentle” to everyone.
Observe also how the Scripture explains exactly how the Servant of the Lord demonstrates gentleness, “in meekness”. This is the consummate description of Moses the Servant of the Lord. Owing to Moses being the meekest person on the earth, and he was gentle made him the Servant of the Lord.
Finally, the other group of persons the Scripture calls the Servant of the Lord is the Church. The Scripture above is part of Apostle Paul’s second letter to Pastor Timothy of the First Century Church. Although it itemizes the qualities of a Servant of the Lord, it also describes the qualities of a Believer of Jesus Christ. Therefore, like Moses and Joshua, every Believer who is a Servant of the Lord is gentle and meek as Jesus Christ was gentle and humble.
