Supplement Your Faith - October 1, 2023
I am back from the mountains and looking forward to seeing you this Sunday. I am so excited to see you in corporate worship and, if possible, in the breakfast class at 9:30 A.M.
Every day, you are confronted with a choice: WHO WILL YOU SERVE? Jesus made it clear you can’t serve two masters, or ten for that matter.
Luke 16:13 “No servant can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be devoted to one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and wealth.”
If you and I follow Jesus, we must over and over come back to choosing Jesus as Lord. You are serving something whether you know it or not. What you serve will reveal itself in what you say and do. What or who you serve will reveal itself in your priorities, calendar, and finances.
This Sunday, as we learn the way of Jesus, we will let the master tell us what serving Him requires. We don’t get to pick and choose what works for us or what feels good at the moment. Serving Jesus means hearing His word and then adjusting to obey what He said. This will not happen automatically or easily. You will not be able to obey Jesus as Lord and all the other demands others want you to meet.
You and I must learn and practice together as a community of followers. Getting up and gathering this Sunday morning is an excellent place to start. This is a basic command from God’s word for those who follow Jesus. This may not be convenient. You will likely have to say no to something else, but that is what serving looks like.
I can’t wait to see you.
