Theme of the Week: Serve
Bible Verse: Whoever finds their life will lose it, and whoever loses their life for my sake will find it. Matthew 10:39
Scripture Reading: Proverbs 3:5-6
It’s an odd thing, and you’ve probably experienced it before: The more you focus on yourself, the less content and satisfied you become. We probably all believe it on at least some level: The happiest people are the ones that learn the art of being selfless. Jesus talks about this exact idea – if we were to “lose” our life, we would actually find it.
It’s when we grip it so hard in fear of losing it, that we actually choke it to death.
There are many reasons for serving that we’ll talk about in the coming days, but this is one that maybe we’ve found to be true already. We have a hard time letting go of our ‘self-preservation’ instinct. But if you really think about it, when you’ve seen God begin to move in your life, you begin to realize you have no reason not to trust Him. After all, He’s saved us from our own sin and meaningless existence! So we learn to trust Him with knowing what’s best for us and believing that He can take care of those things that we need. And when we let that part of our lives go, we have so much more time, energy, and focus to extend to those who don’t even know about God’s love for them!
This is why we serve.
