‘I have shown you in every way, by laboring like this, that you must support the weak. And remember the words of the Lord Jesus, that He said, “It is more blessed to give than to receive.”’
Do you have a passion to serve God? If so, do you have an effective plan as to how you serve God? These are questions to consider if you truly follow Jesus. Jesus desires that we have a passion to serve.
A true follower of Christ looks for opportunities to serve others in the name of Jesus. It doesn’t take much to notice the needs of others who are suffering or weak in faith. Certainly we have more people today dealing with the pressures of a global pandemic. These pressures lead to higher stress levels, anxiety and depression.
In our spiritual life, we either live to serve or we live to be served. We either contribute or we consume. Sadly, we live in a consumer mentality world. All advertisements lure you into the thinking that you need their product to live more happily. And it’s easy to get caught into this trap.
Paul showed us through his ministry how important it is to support the weak. Paul’s mindset was to give all he had to help others in their spiritual walk with Jesus. His life was dedicated to contributing for the cause of Christ and avoiding selfish consumption.
What do you have to give to the glory of God today? How can you point someone to Christ? Make a plan to serve someone today with the passion of God’s love.
Lord, today I am going to serve You with all of my heart. Place someone on my heart and mind who needs what I have to give. Let my service to You be an example of the grace and love you have given to me.
