Serve or Be Served

Are you serving and encouraging? This thought crossed my mind and hit me hard. Jesus was a servant. He served notice on us and left his commandments, instructions and an example to follow. I recently visited a restaurant and the service was stellar, they paid attention from the moment I walked in. They greeted me with a smile and made sure I was satisfied. They made good suggestions and tended to my table effortlessly. They basically cared about my experience and it showed. I was well pleased. On the other hand I have been to restaurants where the service was not so stellar. I had to do most of the work like seat myself, ask for menus, utensils, condiments and water refills. I noticed the servers rarely checked in on their guests and did not attempt to show they cared about anyone. It was not an encouraging atmosphere. I’m sure they got served with less than in some of their gratuities. This experience reminded me of how I should follow God with more of a servant’s heart and attitude. Tend to the needs of others and encourage them. When we serve joyfully, cheerfully and faithfully with encouragement God is well pleased. Now that’s what I call living on pitch.

Are you looking for work?  Do you desire to work from home?  Do you want flexible hours and good pay?  Well, I’m here to tell you that there are many jobs  available in the kingdom business.  You have special gifts to be used for God’s glory.  You have unique gifts that God gave you to use and share.  Servants are needed everywhere.  Can you believe it?  There is so much work to do in just sharing the good news of Jesus.  I was reminded  through a sermon that kingdom work is good work. Being eager to go tell somebody Jesus loves them and He died for their sins seems simple enough right?  It’s a job that pays, it satisfies and it is something you can do from anywhere. I’m still learning that one of best jobs I have is to tell others about Christ.   God saved me and  He can save others too.  We must share our stories of faith, testify of God’s grace and let Him do the heavy lifting and major work on converting the soul.  Who’s ready for their assignment to help spread the good news of Jesus Christ?  Let’s go to work!

Romans 3:23-24 KJV For all have sinned come short of the glory of God. Being justified freely, by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus.

Ephesians 2:8 KJV For by grace are ye saved through faith and that not of yourselves, it is the gift of God.
