As I sit here this morning with my car alone in another state with hopes of getting fixed I’ve been going over this mornings Sunday school lesson and its taking thoughts from the book of Luke in chapter 22:1-30. The title for this morning is Being served or Serving?
A few questions in this mornings lesson asked when this earthly life is over how would we wanna be remembered? How we think we will be remembered and what actions and attitudes would we need to change to make the way we wanna be remembered possible? It’s one of those things that we worry what others think of us but in my way of thinking its what The Lord thinks. I want to be thought of a child of God, people to say he wasn’t popular, not rich, but rather he was rich with the love of God and he did his all to let people hear about Jesus and how awesome of a God we have to love us through all our imperfections. Do I wanna be rich in all these earthly possessions? No, I wanna be glorified in knowing after this life there’s my reward I’ve been dreaming about since the day I accepted Him as my lord and savior because nothing I received before compared to the awesomeness of what living forever with The Lord brings! Before I am finished let me give u a verse from chapter 22 of Luke quickly…think about this…”But ye shall be so:but he that is greatest among you, let him be as the younger; and he that is chief, as he that doth serve”. Think about this, don’t worry about being the most notified person or the most popular among your peers but rather remember that to be great is to serve others not always having the mind set of if I serve other then something good will come from it but to just do it out of the greater good to others. Think less of worldly honor but more in serving The Lord through caring about others and spreading Gods love like His followers did so in the Bible. God bless and make each day forward a Special blessing to those around you and other that come your way.
