Serving Requires Obedience

Serving Requires Obedience

“I desire to do your will, O my God.”                                    Ps 40:8 NIV

If you’re upset over giving up your “rights” and “privileges” to serve others, consider what Christ gave up to serve you. “He humbled Himself and became obedient to the point of death” (Php 2:8 NKJV). When you’re tempted to remind others of the sacrifices you’ve made, hear Christ’s Words: “When you have done all things which you are commanded, say, ‘We are unprofitable servants. We have done what was our duty to do’” (Lk 17:10 NKJV). Have you ever observed a dog that graduated from obedience school? It’s a source of pleasure to its master because it has learned to respond to a word, sometimes even a look. God says, “I will guide thee with mine eye” (Ps 32:8). God wants to bring you to the place where you don’t have to be begged, badgered, or browbeaten to serve. One look from Him, and you do it without question. As a servant you can’t change your master’s orders! Dr. J. R. Miller said, “It is a great deal easier to do that which God gives us to do, no matter how hard it is, than to face the responsibilities of not doing it.” God doesn’t want foot-dragging compliance, He wants willing obedience. And when He gets it, He blesses it. “If you are willing and obedient, you will eat the best from the land” (Isa 1:19 NIV). God’s best is reserved for those who say yes. You ask, “How will I know when I arrive at that place?” Because you’ll be able to say, “I desire to do Your will, O my God.”
