A New Look at Serving

A New Look at Serving

The foremost characteristic of the life of Jesus Christ was and is service. We are most like Him when we serve as He served. The critical point for us to recognize is this – God has called you to serve others just as Jesus served others. He didn’t save you or call you to service so that you might be exalted, praised, glorified, or put on a pedestal. He saved you so that you might serve others, and in so doing, bring praise and honor to God’s holy name.
The good news is that any person who is saved can serve God and bring glory to Him. The nature of the ministry task or calling is not what is important; what is important is the motivation behind our service. God loved us so that we might love others. That’s what the Christian life is all about.
