James 1 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
1 James, a servant of God and of the Lord Jesus Christ,
To the twelve tribes in the Dispersion:
James 1:1 is a very inspiration verse for me. (The word shown as “servant” is probably “slave.”)
The title “servant of God” is officially given to bishops; the Holy Father is called “the servant of the Servants of God.” “Servant of God” is also given officially given to people who are also on their way to canonization.
But, I think it is something for all of us to think of ourselves, not only as Catholics, but more operationally as “servants of God.” We should BE servants of God, and it is probably good for us to start referring to ourselves or remind ourselves to be a’“servant of God and the Lord Jesus Christ.”
