How do we serve God?

Hello Friends! Thank God for another wonderful and new day that the Lord has made. Let us do our best to make this day as effective and qualitative as we can. Let us do our best to spend this day to the benefit of God’s Kingdom, to our own benefit and to the benefit of others. May the goodness and the mercies of God accompany you through out this day in Jesus Name. We will continue our discussion on serving God. The word I want to share with you today is in a question form and we will try to answer that question together. Here is the question: How do we serve God? We serve God by serving other people in His Name. To serve God actually means to serve other people in the Name of God or as the representative of God on the earth. It is to do good to others by meeting their spiritual, emotional, intellectual, physical or material needs as an act of our love for God. Please understand that your love for God will have a reflection your relationship with others. In the same way, your neglect of God reflects on how you relate to your neighbour.
“If thou sinnest, what doest thou against him? or if thy transgressions be multiplied, what doest thou unto him? 7 If thou be righteous, what givest thou him? or what receiveth he of thine hand? 8 Thy wickedness may hurt a man as thou art; and thy righteousness may profit the son of man” (Job 35: 6-8).
 The above scriptures accurately illustrate that in the long run, it is people around us that will either benefit or suffer because of our relationship with God or its absence.All that we think we are giving to God actually benefits people like us on the earth. Our ministry or service to God is to be taken as a service to people created in the image of God.Jesus said in Matthew 25:40  
“… Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me”.
 What we do to others, Jesus received as if we have done it to Him. One time Jesus asked Peter if he loves Him. After receiving a confirmation from Peter that he loves Jesus, the Lord said: “if you love me, then feed my sheep” (John 21:16). This is saying to us that if we really love God and are serving him, that should move us to serve another others in His name.
“For God is not unrighteous to forget your work and labour of love, which ye have shewed toward his name, in that ye have ministered to the saints, and do minister”.(Hebrews 6:10).
 God keeps a record of all that we do for others in His name. He accepts our acts of love in relation to people, as an expression of our love to Him. We show our Love towards God by ministering to the saints.  As you go about your daily activities today, remember to minister to The Lord both in words and in deed, by doing just that to the people around you. That is how you serve the Lord. 
Here on earth mere men receive your service and your gifts, but in Heaven, the Lord Jesus receives all of these things (Hebrews 7: 8). So do all things you do from the heart as unto the Lord, for He is the one who will reward you (Colossian 3:17; 23-24).
 God’s word for you today is this: Do not forget that you serve God by serving the people He has put in your life or the people He leads you to on a daily basis. Remember, you cannot say you love God whom you have not seen unless you first love your brothers and sisters whom you have seen. Remain blessed!
