Serving God

Serving God is NOT an easy thing to do all the time. You may be asked to do things that are uncomfortable or uncommon to others. When you read the bible you will find many characters that were uncomfortable doing what God had asked and would no longer follow Him. One particular man stood out to me in my readings and it’s found in Matthew 19:21 Jesus answered, “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven. Then come and follow me. Now this particular man couldn’t do what Jesus had asked because he was a very wealthy man and didn’t want to give all that he had earned away. It actually reminds me time and time again how much more God has blessed me when I have given all that I have. Many times people have needed work and I was impressed to give it to them even though our finances were not the best. God ALWAYS gave more work than I could possibly need for whomever was with me. Take a chance today, stretch your faith even a little bit out of your comfort zone and see how much more God will provide. ” God we come to you this morning on bended knee to thank you for all that you have given us. Today we want to increase our faith in you by stepping out of our comfort zone to help someone in need. Please give us the strength to help change someone’s life today, in Jesus name AMEN! “
