“No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
Our Job—To Make God LOOK Fabulous
Everyone serves someone or something and of course, it should be the Lord. Not money and not some other person. Have you done what you could? Or could you do more in the realm of Christian service? I think we all could do more. I don’t think there is a single person who is doing his or her all for Christ on earth.
What is parsley used for on a platter of any food? Garnish or decoration mainly. Most people don’t eat the parsley on the plate. In this sense, parsley is useless.
Why are we suppose to serve the Lord? Here is some motivation for us.
1- We serve because it’s what Jesus did
2- We serve because it demonstrates love
3- We serve because it pleases God
Point I. WE SERVE BECAUSE IT’S WHAT JESUS DID
Matthew 20:26-28 “Not so with you. Instead, whoever wants to become great among you must be your servant, and whoever wants to be first must be your slave— just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
If Jesus did it, it must be right.
Point II. WE SERVE BECAUSE IT DEMONSTRATES LOVE
Galatians 5:13-14 “You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: “Love your neighbor as yourself.”
What are the two great commandments that Jesus gave? To love the
Lord God with all your heart, soul and mind and to love your neighbor
as yourself. We are suppose to love God and love mankind. And we
love people by being a servant.
Point III. WE SERVE BECAUSE IT PLEASES GOD
Anyone who serves Christ in righteousness, joy and peace is pleasing
to God! Anyone who serves others is pleasing to God and righteousness,
joy and peace make it even better!
I Corinthians 6:19-20 “Do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit, who is in you, whom you have received from God? You are not your own; you were bought at a price. Therefore honor
God with your body.”
Since we’ve been bought and paid for, we owe it to God to honor
with our lives in Christian service.
