Use What You Got!

How May I Serve You?

What is it that God has given to you and how are you using it for His glory?  Many times in life, we look at what we have or don’t have and start to make excuses about what we can or can’t do.

Real servants don’t make excuses.  Real servants get the job done, because God’s glory is more important than anything else.  Real servants don’t procrastinate.  Real servants jump in and take the risk, because risk grows our faith.  Real servants don’t wait for ideal circumstances.  Real servants take what they’ve got, where they are to do whatever needs to be done, because people need the amazing grace of an awesome and loving God.  Real servants do what needs to be done, just because it needs to be done and because God is worthy.

I Peter 4:10 says:  “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.”

Our service may not be perfect, but it is better than intentions that never get us anywhere. Serving God is not for perfect people who always get it right.  Serving God is for everyone that was created by Him.  Our prayer does not need to be for perfect service, but for blessed service.

God created you and He created you for the purpose of service.  The kind of service that blesses others and brings glory to Him.  Open you heart, soul and mind to Him and the opportunities He has given you and jump in – you will be glad you did!
