Word of the Month | Serving

Can you guess what I forgot about? Yes, the word of the month totally slipped my mind! And such an important one too!

Actually I remembered the Word of the Month a few days ago and have spent these few days trying to come up with a post. I’ve written about three and a half different posts. But I haven’t felt like they (or I) were ready to post. So I’m just going to give you the word of the month without a super long post. Sorry! Maybe one of these days I’ll write a post on serving that I feel the Lord directing me on, but for a now I’ll just give you a few verses.

Thank you for your patience, dear readers!

I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service. And do not be conformed to this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind, that you may prove what is that good and acceptable and perfect will of God.

Romans 12:1-2

These verses though not necessarily about service have encouraged me the past few days to be fully present, to be willing to let the Lord work through me, and to look for opportunities to present myself, my life, a living sacrifice.

I hope you join me in taking initiative and serving throughout this month. Personally I will be doing this through simple acts of service in my home everyday. I’m not trying to make it big, but rather be readily available and looking for ways to serve.

  1. Serving can be hard sometimes because a majority of the time, they require some sort of scarifice. Yet, it’s important to serve because that is what Jesus came to do on earth. I cannot recall the exact verse, but in one of the Gospels, it says that Jesus came to serve,not to be served. His work here on earth was all an act of service and what a wonderful model He was. He did none of it with complaints or groans; He simply did what His Father desired for Him to do. That is how we must be with our actions when it comes to serving. We are not to do things in order to gain a personal benefit, but to be a blessing to others. What a way to let your light shine before others!

  2. Definitely! (Yikes, I just spelled that right without autocorrect!! SO COOL!!! lol)
    Yes, I remember that verse. “We are not to do things in order to gain a personal benefit, but to be a blessing to others.” I love that! It’s so true. But it can be so hard. I’m thankful we have Christ to rely on for strength!
