Today’s 333 Devotional: “Serving God”
Through the parable of the sheep and the goats, Jesus taught about the coming judgment in the End Times. And the determining factor the Lord will use to separate the sheep from the goats, the good from the bad is our service to others, because in serving other we are serving God.
The Lord said, “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink, I was a stranger and you invited me in, I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me, I was in prison and you came to visit me.” (Matthew 25:35-36)
And the people replied, “When did we see you a stranger and invite you in, or needing clothes and clothe you? When did we see you sick or in prison and go to visit you?” (Matthew 25:38-39)
And the Lord said, “Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” (Matthew 25:40)
It is in our service to others that we serve God. Actually this is how God created us. You could say that it’s a part of our spiritual DNA.
“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.” (Ephesians 2:10)
God designed all of us with a unique temperament, personality, characteristics, and capabilities. Each one of us is different and unique in order to fulfill God’s purpose while we are still alive.
But to work properly we need each other. We need to be a part of the body of Christ, that is, the church.
“In Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others.” (Romans 12:5)
We need to be plugged into God who works within us His will and purpose to effect a godly change in the world around us.
