Being passionately in love with Him will cause you to take action.
There are depths in God that will only be found in service to others. The natural mind will never be able to reason this out, but it is truly more blessed to give than to receive.
He who loses his life in service to others is the one who ultimately finds life and finds fulfillment.
Service means: to benefit, to contribute to the welfare of another
In God’s Kingdom, serving is what children of God should do wholeheartedly and faithfully.
Serve wholeheartedly, as if you were serving the Lord, not men Ephesians 6:7 NIV
Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. 1 Peter 4:10 NIV
So, we must passionately go after God with the intentions of discovering every gift He has given to us and realize they are in us to be used to connect to those who need it. Use them! Go all out and give everything in you! Use it all up! Don’t hold back any reserve! It’s one of the principles of the “upside-down” Kingdom of God that as you give your gift away, you find you have more of it!
When you have a God heart, you will also have a heart of a servant; you will enjoy serving others with the gifts you have been given.
Serving and giving is not something we have to do, it is something we get to do!
Inside of every person is the DNA of God that says you are reproducer of His nature. You have everything it takes to make a difference. That is why Satan has been so busy at twisting it, perverting it, and stealing it from people. The devil is hoping they will forget who they are. They will forget they were made to help others. They will forget they were made to meet the needs of the needy. But you have something they need because you are aware that both you and they are created in God’s image and in His likeness.
When you realize that giving is a natural and a spiritual part of who you are, you will go out with an intention to touch someone else to make a significant difference! Caring for them more than you care about the inconvenience, will result in having great influence. Your passionate love for God will bring love from the inside out and bring forth a noticeable difference! Yes!
Ask yourself: What do I have in my hand that can be used by God to show His love to someone that will make a significant difference to their life?
You see, the Church is rising and it’s simply time to begin.
We can think about it. We can pray about it. We can prepare for it. But now it is time to do it. What is it going to take to connect to people? We must start with whatever our stone is (our skill, our gift). Start with what you have!
Jesus told the story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37) who just did what he could and started with what he had—a bandage, a ride on a donkey, and a few coins. In that day, Samaritans were looked down upon, but because of that significant kindness, that example has proven that doing good is a matter of the heart, not social status! God thought it was significant enough to use it as an example for us to live by. You can change the world by connecting to people with selflessness for the King and His Kingdom. Just start!
Let these worship songs sink in and bring about Jesus’s heart to spur you to take action.
