Serving God Is Not to His Benefit but to Us

Is serving God a burden to you?

"I the Lord do not change......,"serving God does not change Him rather it changes people.There is infallible foundation for the above statement in Ex 23:25_26 paraphrasing,"if you worship me,the Lord your God,I will bless you with food and water and take away all your illness .....I will give you long lives".This is a wide promise for all of us serving God entitles you to long life and He has also said He will bless the works of our hands if we get in partnership with Him.Men promises are temporal but God's promises are eternal and fulfilling.Remember, physical training is for some value,but godilness has value for all things imagine that even for that which you have not asked for 🤔holding promise for both the present life and the life to come .Serving God secures you and your posterity.

Remember that when you are enslaved to serve God in deed and in genuinety of heart God is committed to answer you speedily.No one will cut short your lives,why?God will give you long life because you are His own on the duty of service, you will never go barren not even your cattle my God!You will never run dry on the go for looking something to eat.

The Bible gives as a good definition of a servant(Rom6:16),"don't you know that when you offer yourselves to someone to obey him as slaves ,you are slaves to the one whom you obey.....'Just like you obey your bosses in the place of your work,we need to obey God on the same vein.Then this is the clear definition of a servant; whomever obeys God,and His commandments in the kingdom-whoever is subject to sin is a servant to sin,one of the commandments given to us is to serve and you can serve in various capacity of your lives to attract blessings.

We must serve Him as a priority,make Him first"but seek first his kingdom and his righteousness,and all this thing will be given to you as well."Watch!When you take Him fist you won't be last in this race of life as long as God and His righteousness is in view on your go for service.

Serving God is not passing time as the say always go on the mouth of many believers God's time is the best and indeed His interest is the best because when you're serving God is essentially serving our needs (Job36:11)"if they obey and serve Him, they will spend the rest of their days in prosperity and contentment."Prosperity doesn't cover the material but the three sphere of life spirit,soul and body which is your well being.Your body is not tempered with because,a good ambassador is health and you are an ambassador of Christ here on earth and a big price bought to heaven.

Serving God and His interest here on earth guarantees a glorious fasting as it partains the promise both for the present and the life to come.Lets challenge ourselves this moment by the word spoken by this great man"we hear that Christ no longer refuses to be judge or divider between money hungry brothers .He can now be persuaded to assist the brother who has not! Whoever seeks God toward as a means toward desired ends will not find God.God will not be one of many treasures .His mercy and grace are infinite,and His patient understanding is beyond measure.But He will not aid men in selfish stirring after personal gain .If we love God as much as we should, surely we cannot dream of a loved object beyond Him that He might help us obtain".
