FEBRUARY 29 – SERVE

2/29 Matthew 5:20-26
20 “But I warn you — unless you obey God better than the teachers of religious law and the Pharisees do, you can’t enter the Kingdom of Heaven at all! 21 “You have heard that the law of Moses says, ‘Do not murder. If you commit murder, you are subject to judgment.’ 22 But I say, if you are angry with someone, you are subject to judgment! If you call someone an idiot, you are in danger of being brought before the high council. And if you curse someone, you are in danger of the fires of hell. 23 “So if you are standing before the altar in the Temple, offering a sacrifice to God, and you suddenly remember that someone has something against you, 24 leave your sacrifice there beside the altar. Go and be reconciled to that person. Then come and offer your sacrifice to God. 25 Come to terms quickly with your enemy before it is too late and you are dragged into court, handed over to an officer, and thrown in jail. 26 I assure you that you won’t be free again until you have paid the last penny.
SERVE
We are servants of the Lord High God-Jesus Christ. Servants serve. Servants don’t rule nor do they seek first place and they are always evaluated on how well they serve. Servants listen and do not evaluate whether they will do something or not. We serve the Lord God. We do what He says. This doesn’t win us honors it simply certifies that we are indeed servants. Serve the Lord will gladness and do not look for recognition but instead see how to serve Him better.
