Learn to Do Right

Isaiah 1:17

Verse of the Day:  Isaiah 1:17           

Learn to do right; seek justice. Defend the oppressed. Take up the cause of the fatherless; plead the case of the widow.         

We each have been given gifts to serve others and to do what is right. Let’s be faithful stewards of God’s grace by using our gifts to do the right thing for others and not just stand idly by. Let’s give our time and volunteer our gifts and abilities to help those in need. Much mercy was shown to you when Jesus gave His life for you, therefore, show mercy to those in need. Right their wrongs, plead their case, defend the oppressed and seek justice for all. Do what you can, when you can, for as many as you can.

Why We Should Serve

Mark 10 45 2

Verse of the Day:  Mark 10:45

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

As believers in Jesus Christ we should follow the example He set for us. He is the beloved Son of God, the Prince of Peace, the King of Kings, the Messiah yet He came to serve. How then can any of us ever think too highly of ourselves that we cannot serve others. Jesus showed us how to help the sick, the poor and the needy and we must, with humility and love, also do the same. He is calling us to serve others with a heart of compassion. He is giving us the opportunity to serve God by serving others and making the world a better place.

1 Peter 4 10

Verse of the Day:  1 Peter 4:10

Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms.

God gives each of us talents, abilities and gifts that He expects us to use to serve others. Gifts of wisdom, faith, discernment, teaching, administration, service, mercy, hospitality, encouragement and others have been given to us for His purpose, not ours. This Christmas season let the focus be less on ourselves and more on others. If we truly want to please God we must faithfully be generous with our gifts and use them to bless others and to build up God’s kingdom.

For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.

 

Even though Jesus was born King, by His own example He teaches us humility.  The Bible says that Jesus did not come to be served but to serve.  As ambassadors of Christ our lives should exemplify His traits and should reflect Christ in us. Let’s follow His example of humility by serving the less fortunate this holiday season and throughout the year. If you’re interested in volunteering your time you can find volunteer opportunities near you at http://www.volunteermatch.org.
