We worship by serving God.
It is impossible to serve God without serving one another. —Alistair Begg
God doesn’t need anything from us. Instead, He wants something for us. So He calls us to serve people. And we’ll never lock eyes with someone whom God doesn’t adore. Those are the people we get to serve.
God equipped us with distinct spiritual gifts before we inhaled our first breath. He formed each of us in our mother’s womb, and He knows every intricate detail of our being. And, He made us to operate in a certain way, so that others will be blessed and encouraged by our contribution. So, how we are wired is God-driven and God-ordained.
Whether we stand on a stage in front of hundreds of people, meet with a hurting friend over coffee, perform a human resources role for our company, or pick up our children from the school carpool line, this is our act of serving God. We may be using our spiritual gifts to impact fellow believers, or we may simply be performing our daily duties: satisfying our earthly responsibilities is our way to serve God. It really is that simple.
It’s less about our activity and more about our heart’s disposition. It’s not what we do… but why we do it.
Our aim in serving God is to bring Him glory. Whatever it is and however we’re able, we can serve God by serving others. Let’s commit ourselves to making a difference in the Body of Christ with our gifts, abilities and traits. It doesn’t have to be a full-time job, but it should be our full-time calling ✨ - 5 minutes ago
