Yesterday one of the main points of our sermon was on serving God and that we don't need to be a preacher, a missionary or doing great things in the world to serve Him. It is in the little things that we serve God. It doesn't matter how others respond, it is for Him. It doesn't matter whether others deserve the things we do, we do it for Him, He deserves it. Whether we are living with parents and serving them but are still treated wrongly, we do it for Him and for His glory. If we live with a spouse who doesn't know Christ, it shouldn't matter how badly they treat us if we are serving Christ. I am not advocating abuse or endangering the life of children but we continue to love and serve because we are loving Christ. If we work in a job and the boss is always horrible to us, we serve Christ by working at this with all our hearts.
In all of our lives we have those around us that don't deserve kindness, forgiveness, mercy but when we live that, we are serving our Lord. We have our own mission field, we don't need to go someplace else to serve or to teach or minister~the Lord wants us doing these things right where we are. A pretty basic principle but one that we need to be reminded of on a regular basis.
Be blessed this day!
