How Do I Serve in the Kingdom?

 “I became a servant of this gospel by the gift of God’s grace given me through the working of his power. Although I am less than the least of all the Lord’s people, this grace was given me: to preach to the Gentiles the boundless riches of Christ, and to make plain to everyone the administration of this mystery, which for ages past was kept hidden in God, who created all things.” – Ephesians‬ ‭3:7-9

A servant of the Gospel. I love that. We are called over and over again to be servants. To serve as Jesus served. To love as Jesus loves. To live as Jesus lives.

We are given this by the grace of God. This gift from Him. Free to us all. Absolutely amazing.

His riches are endless.

His mercy is endless.

His grace is endless.

His love is endless.

His hope is endless.

Today. Think on servanthood. Think on how to serve others and lift up the name of Jesus in your own life so that you can be an example of His life, love, hope and mercy.  His grace, His kindness, His compassion.



Take a moment to stop.  Think about how to serve.  Slow down for a minute and think on how to serve your wife, your husband, your kids.  Maybe it’s a family outing to a homeless shelter. Maybe it’s serving on a team at church.  All of these acts of serving and kindness do nothing but draw us closer to Jesus and instill in us the kindness and compassion He teaches us and shows us daily.

Today.  Think on all of this and act.  To God be all the glory today.

Can you share your plan for even a small act of service in the comments?

Let’s all pray and encourage each other to commit to loving service.

    My small act of service has been to drive home an elderly woman from my church. I enjoy our lively banter on our short drive to her home. She loves to announce to others that she’s driving home Sandy’s “big old truck.” (I drive a 2009 Ford F-150 pickup.)

      Incredible! Such a great way to show the love of Jesus to others.
