Scripture often refers to the Lord’s followers as servants. We are to live for God and serve His purposes, not our own.

As humans, we will never be perfect this side of heaven. However, time after time, faithful servants demonstrate willingness to do the Master’s will. Their commitment to working for Him doesn’t evaporate when obedience is inconvenient, uncomfortable, or costly.

God wants His people to enjoy life and His blessings. First Timothy 6:17 says we are to “fix [our] hope on . . . God, who richly supplies us with all things to enjoy.” However, any pleasure we seek must be one that God permits.

Sometimes a blessing becomes sinful when we overindulge in it. For instance, there’s nothing wrong with enjoying a delicious meal. But eating to excess is gluttony (Prov. 23:21).HOW ABOUT YOU-- Can you identify an area of your life—a hobby, pastime, or even a task—that tends to get out of control in this way?

Although God often rewards our faithfulness here on earth, He doesn’t want us to count on temporal rewards for our good deeds. Such a focus can make us prideful and rob us of the simple joy of obedience. However, Jesus did encourage His followers to work for and anticipate eternal rewards for faithful service.

For almost 2 yr as church worker, I admit,Yes... I am still learning... I-- I MEAN talking to my characteristic as servant,-- who had head knowledge of God’s Word but sometimes failed to apply it properly and therefore missed out on transformation and blessing,

After I experienced the spiritual dryness in the area of my service to Him, I am really learning thoroughly...by heart--i discovered that serving in church is usual, but to serve consistently now a days is rare one to find... In serving Him, Let's NEVER indulge the flesh...do not look back for any reasons...and expect specific consequences based on the quality of our service.--as our mentor said; do you want to learn through the HARD WAY, HARDEST WAY or in TRAGIC WAY?


At all...
