You Shall Serve HIm

 Deuteronomy 13:4, "You shall walk after the Lord your God and fear Him and keep His commandments and obey His voice, and you shall serve Him and hold fast to Him."

SERVING increases our faith. It shows us how things grow as we nurture them. And He walks beside us as we do. So it gives us that closeness as He is next to us. I think it also helps with our cheerful countenance. 

Colossians 3:17, " And whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him,"

2 Chronicles 15:58, "Therefore, my beloved brethren be you steadfast, unmovable, always abounding in the work of the Lord, forasmuch as you know that your labor is not in vain in the Lord."

In Colossians, Paul is wanting us to be imitators of those who are wholeheartedly devoted to Christ. If we are burdened for others to know Christ then our joyful service will show them we love God. 

So dear one, don't half heartedly serve Him but be joyful and willing to show others how much you love God. That's not easy to always do. I totally get it. But try. Have a sweet prayer time before you serve and pray to have a good attitude. Because He has gifted us in different ways so we fit together like a puzzle and what happens when a piece is missing? It is frustrating and we look and look for it. 

I also think about our pastors and wives and how much they minister to everyone and they need help!

I am so very thankful for their leadership. Be willing my friends.
