Serving God and Others (June 2, 2013)

Galatians 1:10 “Am I now seeking the favor of men, or of God? Or am I striving to please men? If I were still trying to please men, I would not be a bond-servant of Christ.”

“We must be servants of Christ.  Our one passion must be to please Christ and do His will.” {p. 113 “The Mind of Christ Workbook“}

We are called to be servants.  The world teaches that to be great we must attain position or influence, but Jesus taught that in order to become great in the Kingdom of God, we must be a lowly servant.  We are called to serve others with love and submission.

[Read Matthew 10-12]

Matthew 10:39 “If you cling to your life, you will lose it; but if you give up your life for me, you will find it.”

Father God,
I cannot really understand the type of love and service Jesus came to Earth to perform on my behalf.  Teach me to love in such a way that I would be willing to give myself in service to God and others. Amen.
