Love you all, praying for you,
God teaching me recently. Your obedience doesn’t just bless you. Psalm 102:28 – The children of your servants will live in your presence, their descendants will be established before you. Wow – if you serve God – that is what will happen to your children and your children’s children. Are you more concerned with your own life – what you do – what you gain, what you accomplish, your fame? Or are you more concerned with your children, grandchildren, and their children and grandchildren? Do you want them to live in God’s presence, and have their lives established before Him? Does that matter to you? The greatest things you could accomplish even in the prime of your life, your grandchildren and great grandchildren won’t even know it, much less their children. Do generations matter to you? If you could do something in your life – that would guarantee that your children’s children and their children’s children would live in God’s presence, and their lives and families would be established before the LORD – would you do it? Or would you rather accomplish great things in your life, be rich and famous? Would that even matter a mere 30-40 years from now? Those whose descendants live in God’s presence and are established before Him… are those who are servants of the LORD right now in their life. God says these things all happen for the servants of the LORD – those who serve Him. What does that mean? Those who serve Him are those who obey Him, and those who serve Him also serve others. They live their life for God, not themselves. They follow His plans for them, not their own. They serve.
So how well do you serve? God and others? Those who serve God (who obey Him) also serve others. Matthew 20:28 tells us what Jesus was about – just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve… Galatians 5:13-14 - … rather, serve one another in love. The entire law is summed up in a single command: ‘Love your neighbor as yourself…’ John 13:12 - When he had finished washing their feet, he put on his clothes and returned to his place. “Do you understand what I have done for you?” he asked them. “You call me ‘Teacher’ and ‘Lord,’ and rightly so, for that is what I am. Now that I, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also should wash one another’s feet. I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you. I tell you the truth, no servant is greater than his master, nor is a messenger greater than the one who sent him. Now that you know these things, you will be blessed if you do them.”
So where are you today? Are you at school? At work? Are you on vacation? Are you at a friend’s house, at the store, or at a restaurant? Here is the question. Did you come to be served? Or did you come to serve? When the dishes need done, are you the first to do them? or… do expect someone else to do it. Do you serve – or do you not? (If you don’t – you really expect others to serve you). If it’s not what Jesus did, it’s not serving God. Praying for you, that PiVAT before dinner – will have you obeying God every day, that PRISM will have you understanding it, and your Daily Call testimony will keep you overcoming in it! Praying that you like Jesus, will always look to serve both your Heavenly Father, and serve others. That you would always be first to serve. That your children and their children will live in his presence and be established before Him.
Love you all,
