Saved People Serve- Part 5


This week we have looked at a dozen reasons why the Bible says we are to live our lives serving others.
  1. I was created to serve
  2. I am saved to serve
  3. I’ve been called by God for service
  4. I've been gifted to serve
  5. I am commanded to serve others.
  6. It proves that I belong to Christ
  7. My church family needs my service
  8. Serving others is the way to serve God
  9. Because I owe everything to Christ 
  10. Because service makes life meaningful
  11. I will be held accountable for my service
  12. Because i will be rewarded for eternity.
God did not put you on earth to live a self-centered life. He put you on earth to make a difference. He wants you to make a contribution with your life. He wants you to give something back. 

Whenever you use your talents, your abilities, your background, your experience, your time, your energy, you finances to help somebody else and you do it in God’s name; the Bible has a word for that. It’s called ‘ministry.’ Everybody is a minister. Not everybody is a pastor, but everybody is to serve using the abilities that they’ve got.

Now you remember how we talked about how life is preparation for eternity and God says, “This life is a dress rehearsal to get ready for the next life.” And one of the things you’re going to do in heaven is you’re going to serve God, and how do you do that here on earth? How do you serve God? Well, you can’t..The only way you can serve God is by serving other people. You can’t serve God directly. 

It is in serving his children that you serve God. Come be a part of a church family this Sunday looking for a way to serve…not be served.

Your pastor and partner in ministry,
