Service – Week of August 17th 2010

Service

And whatever you do, do it heartily, as to the Lord and not to men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the reward of the inheritance; for you serve the Lord Christ.

Colossians 3:23-24

My people who have received My inheritance in their earthly life willingly serve for the purpose of serving Me.  Those who have not experienced My inheritance in their earthly life serve man; seeking, seeking, seeking something man cannot give them.  To serve Me for the purpose of simply serving Me is to love Me and to know Me.  To know the One with all the riches ready for distribution.  Every day and with every act of service, My people choose whom they will serve.  One day it may be Me and one day it may be man.  Those who need not be seen, heard or known serve Me – quietly, silently, lovingly and patiently knowing that I will reward their efforts on My behalf, they need not depend upon or look upon man to give them anything.  For they have come to a place where they know man has nothing of eternal value, by way of reward, to offer.  Serve Me quietly and secretively or boldly and obviously but serve Me because you love Me.  Don’t ever serve Me for a reward; serve Me for the same reason I served you with My death – LOVE!  The only real hero’s have so much love for Me and others that they cannot help but serve to the point of death if required and reward is the least of their concerns.  Yet, those will be the ones with the greatest rewards heaped upon them on earth and in eternity with Me.  Would you like My rewards or the rewards of man?
