How Can I Serve God?
Romans 1:9 – God knows how often I pray for you. Day and night I bring you and your needs in prayer to God, whom I serve with all my heart by spreading the Good News about his Son.
Many believers want to serve God. They’ve experienced His love and mercy and they just want to give their best to him in service. That’s really awesome, we should serve God and with all our heart, but how?
In our opening text, Apostle Paul states that he serves God by spreading the good news. You might think, ‘oh that’s Apostle Paul, I’m a good artist, I’ll just serve God with my drawings’. Well, remember, there was one command Jesus gave His disciples and to us after His resurrection.
Jesus came and told his disciples, “I have been given all authority in heaven and on earth.
Therefore, go and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit.
Teach these new disciples to obey all the commands I have given you. And be sure of this: I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”
Let’s see how Mark puts it:
Mark 16:15 – And then he told them, “Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.
You want to serve God, you might as well do what He wants and this is to spread the good news about His son. We’ve got to understand this so we won’t go about a myriad of activities trying to serve God. Now this doesn’t scrap your gifts or talents but in all you do, preach the gospel!
Don’t be perturbed, you’ve been empowered for this service, we have the Holy spirit and we serve God by the spirit putting no confidence in the flesh.
2 Corinthians 3:6 – He has enabled us to be ministers of his new covenant. This is a covenant not of written laws, but of the Spirit. The old written covenant ends in death; but under the new covenant, the Spirit gives life.
Let’s serve God today and always, taking this good news far and wide. You’ve got the ability!
Thank you Lord for the strength to serve you, and for the task you’ve given which you help me achieve, I remain faithful to it in your strength, amen.
