Serving provides a peace and joy that comes from faithful obedience.
There are a lot of things in the Bible we all struggle with on the daily. We struggle with so much that it only makes sense to get the victories where we can. Some of these victories are easier than others. One of the easiest, though, is serving. In 1 Peter 4, we’re told that we’re supposed to take our gifting and our skills that God has given us and we should pour them into those around us.
There are some things we will struggle with our entire life. There are some things we’ve got to work at for years to hand over to God in faithful surrender. Serving, however, is one that only takes time and routine. Deciding that some of your time is worth investing in others is a simple way to give another small piece of yourself over to who God created you to be.
Who are you serving?
