The Marks of a Christian - Serve the Lord
Does your life have outward marks that reflect your inward convictions? If you are a follower of Jesus, it should.
Serving the Lord is another mark of a Christian (Romans 12:11c).
As Christ-followers, we should have servant hearts and attitudes which imitate how Jesus served us. When we do, we’re able to see Jesus for who He is – our Master – and we obey everything He asks of us.
How did Jesus serve us? He willingly gave His life so that we could have the gift of eternal life.
When we serve – not if we serve, but when – we do so with a joyful heart, even if the task is menial. We see no task as too big or too small. No matter what He calls us to do, we do it.
Why? Because He is our Lord. He rules all - and us! We understand our position in the world.
And when we view our lives this way, Mark 10:45 becomes a life verse: “For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Jesus called His disciples to follow Him. To seek serving, not being served.
We are never more faithful in following Jesus than when we serve others.
