God has reminded me over the years that He is to be the object of my service. The tagline for my blog is “Make God Your Everything”. Galatians 3:23-24 is the reason. Everything we do should be for God.
I know I can fall into the trap of thinking serving at church is the only way to serve God. Being a part of a local church is important (Hebrews 10:25). However, everything we do is either service for the Lord or ourselves. Yes – everything.
When service gets difficult, I can fall into the pit of serving for the wrong reasons. I believe we should show appreciation to one another, but that cannot be the desired result of service. Honoring God should be the goal in everything we do.
I have fought the battle of the wrong view of service. Have you? We need to seek to stay on the path of serving God in all we do. Will you join me?
