How do you serve God? Are you caught up in a frenetic race to go to this meeting, attend that Bible study, help out with this or that event etc?
What you do for God is not really important, it is how and why you do what you do for God that matters. Do you serve God looking to serve His body, or do you serve looking for the recognition and position you can achieve? God is much more interested in how you serve Him than He is in how much you serve Him.
Serving the Lord should be done out of love for what He first did for us, He saved us. His love for us enables us to serve Him…out of love He saved us, out of love part of Him is with us. Out of love He changes us. Without the initial investment of God within us, we can do nothing for Him.
Some wrongly believe in a works based salvation. This could not be further from the truth. My works and yours mean absolutely nothing without first having experienced the saving grace of Jesus Christ. Let me put it to you this way; your works without being saved by grace first are like going to the grocery store, getting all your groceries at the checkout…and then realizing your credit card is at home, useless!
Celebrate what God has done in you…through His great love for you.
