Supernatural Serving

Supernatural Serving

We can make all the seemingly strong arguments to rationalize what Jesus says, but, in the end, he said it and if he really is the Son of God, then we need to obey. The topic in question is serving. The night before Jesus was crucified, he washed his disciples’ feet. Then he turned to them and said, “…you also should wash one another’s feet.” 

If you are feeling a bit defensive, you have a lot of company. Most everyone is extremely hesitant about serving, and for various reasons. 

“Won’t people take advantage of me?”

Yes, they absolutely will. People took advantage of Jesus. In fact, people have disregarded and disdained what Jesus did for them for the last 2000 years. He knew this would happen, but he served anyway. 

“I can’t change anyone’s life. Whatever I do for someone else, it won’t make a difference?”

How do you know? Remember, it’s not you who are working the change in someone’s life, that’s God’s job. You and I are just the serving instruments. 

“But I don’t want to serve!”

Does anyone? Isn’t it the truth that rather than serving, we want everyone to serve us! That is why being a follower of Jesus Christ makes us different, radically different. 

Serving requires effort, patience, perseverance, and courage. But it is what Christians do because it is what Christ did for us. 

Join us for our worship service this Sunday morning. Serving may not be high on your priority list right now, but if you are serious about living a consistent Christ-centered life, then it needs to be. And one more thought, Jesus said “If you serve, you will be blessed.” Being blessed by Jesus –  isn’t that worth giving some thought?
