All of us want to grow. No one wants to stay stagnant or plateau in their life, especially in their walk with God. One key to continue growing as a Christian is to serve others. Paul said, “For you have been called to live in freedom, my brothers and sisters. But don’t use your freedom to satisfy your sinful nature. Instead, use your freedom to serve one another in love.” (Galatians 5:13) Christ has set us free and we are to use our new found freedom to serve one another. The reality is, growing people serve people!
- Am I serving the people around me?
- Who do I need to serve today?
- Do I serve at my church? Why or why not?
Search me, O God, and know my heart; test me and know my anxious thoughts. Point out anything in me that offends you, and lead me along the path of everlasting life. (Psalm 139:23-24)
