I Am A Church Member-My First Love-Part 5

May 19, 2015

There is simplicity in our service to God as He works through us. But if we are not careful we will serve for the wrong motives. We will serve because we want other people to notice what we do instead of serving because we love God and we love others. My friend, we cannot buy God’s favor and acceptance. God is to be our first love, and when we leave our first love we begin to love something else other than God. You and I are to be lead by the Holy Spirit, and when we serve with the wrong motives and a wrong attitude we grieve the Holy Spirit and our service to God is unfruitful. But when we love God and love others our service will be joyous and others will see the beauty of Jesus in us and in our service, and service will no longer be a chore but a labor of love.
