Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Serving Christ

Recommended Posts

"I'm a secretary," a friend told me. "When I tell people this, they sometimes look at me with a certain pity. But when they find out who I am secretary for, they open their eyes with admiration!" In other words, society often defines some jobs as less important than others, unless those jobs happen to relate in some way to rich or famous people.

 

For the child of God, However, any occupation, regardless of the earthly boss, can be held proudly because we serve the Lord Jesus.

 

In Ephesians 6, Paul talks to servants and masters. He reminds both groups that we serve one Master who is in heaven. So we need to do everything with sincerity of heart, integrity, and respect because we are serving and working for zChrist Himself. As the apostle Paul reminds us, "Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not people" (Ephesians 6:7).

 

What a privilege to serve God in everything we do, whether answering a phone or driving a car or doing housework or running a business. Let us work with a smile today, remember ing that no matter what we are doing , we are serving God.

Serving Christ doesn't have to involve some sort of grand gesture though. You don't have to move mountains, feed millions, or preach the Lord's work to all corners of the globe. I firmly believe that the small things are the ones that matter, because they can affect someone's day more than you realize. A simple hello, helping an elderly cross the street, giving street urchins a part of your lunch so all of you can eat. I think that's the way we can serve the Lord best; by not being too involved with ourselves, and go out and think of other people as well. The little things cause ripple effects to people around you, and in due time, these small acts would multiply, because for every person you help, they will pass it on, and so on, and so on.

I agree with you, OursIsTheFury.

One thing, I'm guilty that sometimes as a 14 yearold boy and having unbelievers rejecting Christ all around me, I sometimes don't spread the gospel's message due to fear. I wanna overcome this and I will do it.
