Serving Others

on July 4, 2017

You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free.  But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature; rather, serve one another in love. ~Galatians 5:13

Paul is distinguishing between our freedom to sin and our freedom to serve.  The freedom to sin is really not a freedom at all, because it enslaves us to Satan, to others, or to our own sinful nature.  As Christians, we are free to do right and to glorify God through loving service to others.

The feeling we experience when we do something for someone else (without any expectation for repayment) is a wonderful feeling. It may cost a little money or a little time, but the reward is the great feeling that comes from serving others.  When we glorify God through helping someone else it opens the door to that person to receive God’s love, too.  You never know what small act of kindness might change a person’s outlook.  Often times, a smile and a friendly greeting can transform someone’s day.  It doesn’t take much to show we feel the love of God and are thankful for the freedom we have to share that love with others.  How can you serve someone today?
