Barnes begins his journey at a church-run chicken farm in Hawaii. He wanted to start in the pulpit but found himself in a coop. Here he learns that each part of the body is equally important, and continues from there, guided by Mark 10:45, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." He concludes if God could serve, so must His followers.
He passes from the farm to the church kitchen, where he again faces his pride, and then on to the mission field at last. But even there he struggles to remain humble, and he finally realizes that he will never completely triumph, at least, not in this lifetime. It sounds discouraging, but Barnes points out that God uses people through their weaknesses and turns their failures into victories.
Barnes, in this day of contrived cleverness, is refreshingly simple in his explanations, stating plainly that a servant should not mind being treated like one. He does not boast of all the trials he endured. He just presents the ongoing story of an ordinary man trying to obey God. His words may seem too simple at times, but they are nonetheless true and should be taken to heart. Those wrestling with pride will do so, and those who feel as though their calling is insignificant will find hope. Mark T. Glenchur, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com
