Spread the love

One of the reasons God created us is to serve.

“And ye shall serve the LORD your God…” (Exodus 23:25).

God tied His blessings to service. When we serve God, He is committed to deliver what His word says He’d deliver.

What is service?

Whatever you do to honor God is service. Doctors, teachers, traders etc also serve God in their fields of endeavours. When you do good for a fellow human in honour of God’s name, God said you have done it to Him.

“…Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.” (Matthew 25:40).

Job was preserved because of service, first he gave to the poor and widows (Job 29:12-13), then he prayed for his friends despite his predicaments. The scriptures records that God turned the captivity of Job when he prayed for his friends (Job 42:10).

God will make happen to you what you make happen for others. As Christians, it’s also our duty to serve willingly and wholeheartedly in God’s Church, no one else should do that for us. Therein lies our preservation.

“And ye shall serve the LORD your God, and he shall bless they bread, and they water; and I will take sickness away from the midst of thee. There shall nothing cast their young, not be barren, in they land: the number of thy days I will fulfil.” (Exodus 23:25-26).

There’s no future for anyone who refuses to serve. You only get enrolled on God’s payroll when you serve. Serve God, and also render service to Humanity. God said you do it unto Him (Matthew 25:40).

The first step anyone can take before rendering an acceptable service to God is to be born again. Those who have not made the decision to give their lives to Christ should do so, and receive Him as their Lord and Saviour. (John 3:3; vs 16).

What you do for others is registered in heaven, from whence your reward comes.

“For I was hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink…” (Matthew 25:35).

In the above scriptures, Jesus was speaking to those who had left the earth either through death or rapture. Good deeds do not replace salvation, we must continue to live right as we serve the righteous God, and as we contribute to others. You can start at your level, and increase as He increases your capacity. Remain blessed.
