Saved to Serve (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 266)

saved-to-serve

2 Timothy 1:9 (NLT)
For God saved us and called us to live a holy life. He did this, not because we deserved it, but because that was his plan from before the beginning of time—to show us his grace through Christ Jesus.

God redeemed us through Christ’s blood so that we could do something with the grace we have been given. You’re not saved by your own works or your own merit. You’re not saved because you are a great person or because you had great parents because you are so good or so righteous. You are saved to do something about the grace by which you have received salvation and redemption. Read more…

It Is How You Live that Matters (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 253)

it-is-how-you-live-that-matters

Romans 12:5 (NLT)
So it is with Christ’s body. We are many parts of one body, and we all belong to each other.

You will live your life for something. What you live it for is completely up to you. You can have all the stripping of worldly success, but the only thing that is going to matter is how you served God and the people around you. We aren’t called to do everything, but we are required to do something. Just as every single part of the body must perform its duty, we too must perform our duty in the world. Read more…

Reflecting Grace by How We Treat People (365 Days of Daring Faith — DAY 251)

Reflecting Grace by How We Treat People

Luke 6:31 (NLT)
Do to others as you would like them to do to you.

We may not think about it like this, but each and everyone of us have people in our lives who serve us on a daily basis. A trip to your favorite restaurant will show you a waiter or waitress who is a servant in disguise. The secretary at your office, the receptionist at the dentist, the barista at Starbucks, your husband, wife, parents, children, your child’s teacher and coach all are people who serve you. One of the best proofs of maturity and tests of character is how you treat the people who serve you. Read more…

Use Your Gifts Well (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 218)

Use Your Gifts Well

1 Peter 4:10 (NLT)
God has given each of you a gift from his great variety of spiritual gifts. Use them well to serve one another.

God created us for service. We have a deep desire on the inside to use our skills, talents, abilities, and resources to make a contribution in the world. When we use the gifts God has given us to help other people, God is happy because we are reflecting His good grace through our lives. Read more…

The Highest Calling (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 196)

The Highest Calling

Joshua 24:15 (NLT)
But as for me and my family, we will serve the Lord.

Many people believe that one must be a preacher, minister, or hold some other position in a church in order to serve the Lord. But that isn’t the case. All believers are not called to be ministers within a church, but we all are called to do what we do in service (ministry) to God and others. Serving is the highest calling one can have.  Read more…

So Wonderfully Complex (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 159)

So Wonderfully Complex

Psalm 139:13-14 (NLT)
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it.

When God created each one of us, He took special care and consideration to design us different from anybody else. He did not make duplicates or carbon copies. His mind is far more brilliantly creative and innovative than any human mind. Because of this He took time to make every little part of us work together into a marvelous and wonderful whole.

Voluntary Humility and Love (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 151)

Voluntary Humility and Love

John 10:17-18 (NLT)
“The Father loves me because I sacrifice my life so I may take it back again. No one can take my life from me. I sacrifice it voluntarily. For I have the authority to lay it down when I want to and also to take it up again. For this is what my Father has commanded.”

Jesus Christ is the greatest example of humility, love, and service. He is the epitome of what it means to trust and obey God with all your heart and willingly yield to God the Father’s will. Yielding our lives to God’s service begins with laying down our lives so He can use it for His glory. We cannot continue to run our lives and expect God to be able to manifest His will through us at the same time.  Read more…

Generous Provisions (365 Days of Daring Faith – DAY 143)

Generous Provisions

Psalm 37:25 (NLT)
Once I was young, and now I am old. Yet I have never seen the godly abandoned or their children begging for bread.

David, who himself had his moments of destitution, fear, and begging for daily bread and for his life, testifies of a much higher level of living. Under God, he doesn’t witness a single soul being left in the cold or abandoned. Each generation, the young and the old, and throughout his own life, he sees God provide first-hand and raise up friends to supply needs.  Read more…
