SAVED TO SERVE!
Celebrate with joy to the Lord, all lands. Serve the Lord with gladness, come before him with song.
- Is serving God with joy a goal in your life? The psalmist in Psalm 100 encourages us to worship the Lord with enthusiasm and satisfaction. We are also encouraged to serve God with praise, awe (Ps. 2:11), pleasantly, willingly (Eph. 6:7). We know that serving God is no longer an obligation on our never-ending to-do list, but a privilege and honor!
- We do not serve to be saved, but we serve because we were saved by Jesus! This should change our attitude towards God and people. Some are always demanding that God serve them (as they dictate!) and always want others to do everything for them. Remember: you were saved to serve!
- Greater is he who SERVES (Mt 23:11)! Jesus set an example for us by making himself a servant, he came to meet the unclean, he washed the disciples' feet... He also washed our hearts exarched with filth... Be more like Him: serve God with fear, serve others. others with love.
Serving with love:
- God gave us Life for a purpose! Look around you, there is so much to do!
- Pray and make yourself available to serve! God has so much to do in everyone through us!
- Everything you do at home, work, school or church should be done as if it were done for God. Dedicate yourself to every service you do. Be the best for the glory of God!
- Do good, be rich in good works, generous in giving and ready to share (Cf. 1 Tim. 6:18)
- Do your best for God! Pray, praise, help, witness, share, work, encourage, teach, in short: be a good and faithful servant.
To Pray: Lord God, how good it is to serve the Lord, help us every day he is at your disposal, with health, full of your anointing, with vigilance and wisdom. may we also serve my neighbor with all generosity every day. Teach me to be productive in the service of Christ and in the good works you have prepared for me. Always give me the humility to serve You and others with the gifts You have given me. May I empathize and be more like Jesus, who denied himself and served us, for the aggrandizement of Your Kingdom. I thank you for all this, in Christ's name, amen!
