Why We Serve

Christians serve Jesus. But why? It is in Christ that we live, move and have our being. In Christ we are made alive by grace through faith. And it is the Lord Christ whom we serve (Col. 3:23). As we are saved by grace, we live by grace, and we serve by grace.

Why do we serve? Not to feel good, not for power over others, not to be significant. We serve because Jesus inspires and empowers us to give as we've freely received from Him. We serve out of the overflow of the life of Christ in us. We serve for God's good pleasure. We yield ourselves to Him and His will. Bottom line, we serve so that God would be glorified as many come to faith in Christ.
