Serve The Lord

Posted on

Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for human masters, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.

Colossians 3:23-24

We live to serve the Lord and he will guide us through life with his divine wisdom and blessings. If we guide ourselves strictly by the Word, then we could be considered to be prideful?  We need Christ with us as we go through our days, because he knows all people. He may guide us to talk to someone that we normally wouldn’t notice, but Christ will prompt us to talk to that person.

Rejoice always, pray continually, give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus. (1 Thessalonians 16-18) We should go through each day rejoicing and giving thanks because Christ is with us, and Heaven is our home. We pray continually which implies we are in constant connection with Christ, because we depend on his divine guidance.

But when he, the Spirit of truth, comes, he will guide you into all the truth. He will not speak on his own; he will speak only what he hears, and he will tell you what is yet to come. (John 16:13) We are connected to Christ through the Spirit, and we ask for his guidance and wisdom, he will place thoughts in our minds, or change the desires of our heart. It’s a great blessing to be guided by Christ, with his infinite love, wisdom, and power.

We should develop the habit of doing everything as doing it for Christ, because that is how we reflect Christ to the world. We can serve the Lord in many ways, but it’s really important the we do our best to reflect Christ like behavior at all times, because we are being molded by God to conform to the image of his Son. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the image of his Son, that he might be the firstborn among many brothers and sisters. (Romans 8:29) All those who accept Christ as their Lord and Savior are being molded to conform to the mind and heart of Jesus.

Today be mindful to commune with the Lord and seek to serve him, and do your best to reflect Christ in all situations.

Prayer:  Lord, help me to reflect Christ today, and to do everything as doing in for Christ as I seek his guidance in my thoughts and words. In Jesus name, Amen
