Service: Privilege or Obligation?

Dear Beloved,

How art thou?  I hope and pray that thou art well!  It would seem obvious for me to write about the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus Christ, right?  The Holy Spirit is leading yours truly in a different direction and I have no choice but to be okay with that.  Here’s a quick word of advice: you don’t have to wait until the church doors swing open this weekend to either give your life to Christ, or reconcile with Him if you have lost your way as a Christian.  At any moment and time, you can simply confess, believe, and repent, (turn away from sin)…That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised him from the dead, thou shalt be saved (Romans 10:9, KJV).  Stay tuned, I’ll break that down real soon. 🙂

Life has a way of pulling us in every direction.  If we’re not careful, we can lose our way in our daily routine.  Have you considered that each and every thing that you and I do are opportunities to serve God? As you can clearly see, God is everywhere at the same time, and worthy to serve in more than just the four walls of a church.  Consider this:  And whatsoever ye do, do it heartily, as to the Lord, and not unto men (Colossians 3:23, KJV).  The main idea here is to serve, honor, and aim to please God, not men.  In those moments of rushing to cross off the many things we feel we need to accomplish, remember to pause, breathe, and thank God for all He has done and what He’s yet going to do.  Beloved, before we start to complain about our laundry list, remember that your service to God is a privilege, not an obligation.  Until we meet again… I love you to life!
