This week, our path is SERVICE. (see previous editions)
To serve one another is what Christianity has called us to do. We have a living example in our saviour Jesus Christ. He is the typical example of the Servant Leader. To serve requires that you be selfless, putting the needs of others before you, you strive to teach and be teachable, staying humble because your meat is to do His Will and to give Him pleasure.
Our text in Mark 9:34 says
And he sat down and called the twelve. And he said to them, “If anyone would be first, he must be last of all and servant of all.” (ESV)
The Path of Service is one of humility, generosity and a kind heart. It is service to God, foremost and then He teaches you how to serve humanity in His way. It is clear in the word of God that we cannot serve two masters; God and Mammon (Mark 6:24) – today whom are you serving?
It is important to reflect on all our activities and motives for helping or serving others? Are we doing it for the fame, are we doing it for recognition or are we doing it because it will give the Father pleasure?
As the COVID-19 plague keeps us isolated or quarantined, what are you doing to serve humanity in these times? This is the time to serve in whatsoever way God has designed for you in this period. Ask Him to guide you.
Remember Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ. (Col 3:23-24)
