Whom Do We Serve?

OCTOBER 20, 2021

KEY FROM GOD’S WORD:

Proverbs 20:6 Most men will proclaim every one his own goodness: but a faithful man who can find?

THOUGHT ON GOD’S WORD:

    We live in a “ME FIRST” world today. What is in it for ME? That is the question on everyone’s mind.

    However, if we can find a way to get our eyes off our self and keep our eyes on our Saviour, we will usually find there is a positive answer, even in the midst of our greatest difficulties. Even if there is no financial, or earthly reward of any type, there will be that reward in heaven if your aim is to serve the Lord.

    But, if we look to serve the “ME FIRST” inside us, the situations in life will always look bleak. You will find yourself saying things like, “oh poor ME,” “look what they have done to ME,” “nobody ever likes ME,” and, “what is in it for ME.”

    The Bible tells us we should not be looking for the answer to what is in it for ME. In fact, it teaches the opposite. We should be asking; what is in it for THEM? Not what can I get, but what can I give? How can I serve? How can I help? What can I do to make the Christian Life better for another? Can I be an example to a child looking for leadership? Might I be able to encourage an adult who struggling with life and their walk with God? Could I share the gospel with another lost person who needs someone to lead and guide them to Christ?

    The verse today asks a question that is true even today. “A FAITHFUL Man… who can find?” Is there someone who will commit his or her ways to the Lord and follow faithfully? Not just in good and fun times, but all the time. Knowing that God’s rewards are better than man’s rewards any day. Could that person be you?

CARRYING THAT THOUGHT THROUGH THE DAY:

    It is not about our goodness, our talents, our needs, or really even our wants. It is about serving Jesus Christ. No matter what your trial is, it is not as bad as dying on a cross. That is what Jesus did for you. What are you facing that could possibly be that bad? What are you doing for Him?
