Day 27 | Serve God by Serving Others

25/05/2019

Temptation isn’t only about doing the wrong things. It’s also about not doing the right things. There are sins of commission and sins of omission. Our comforts can be just as dangerous as our catastrophes. God didn’t put you on earth for your comfort. He put you here to serve his purposes. How do you serve God? There is only one way: You serve God by serving others, even when it’s inconvenient. Whatever you do for others, God expects you to do it as though you were doing it directly for him.

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters… It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

COLOSSIANS 3:23-24 (NIV)

REFLECT

What did you hear?
What did God say to you as you read today’s Bible passage? What word or phrase was most meaningful to you?

What do you think?
What does this passage mean to you? How does it apply to your life?

What is your prayer?
This is where you turn your thoughts into prayer. It could be a prayer of gratitude or praise. It could be a prayer of confession or a request for God’s help. It’s up to you. But take a minute to write a prayer of response to God.
