Christians Should Serve The Lord With A Pure Heart
(Passage: 2 Chronicles 5)
King Solomon made history by leading his people to build a state-of-the-art temple for God. The action pleased the Lord, and He filled the temple with his glory. The scripture reported,
“Indeed it came to pass, when the trumpeters and singers were as one, to make one sound to be heard in praising and thanking the Lord, and when they lifted up their voice with the trumpets and cymbals and instruments of music, and praised the Lord, saying: “For He is good, For His mercy endures forever,” that the house, the house of the Lord, was filled with a cloud, so that the priests could not continue ministering because of the cloud; for the glory of the Lord filled the house of God” (2 Chronicles 5:13-14).
Benign Service To God Warrants A Reward
Christians must make adequate effort to satisfy God with their best services at all times. Jehovah appreciates any service that is offered from a pure heart. He rejoices when his children honor him with a pure motive; He also reciprocates their actions with blessings. That is, God will bless anyone who makes Him happy with his or her services. It is, therefore, important that every child of God serves him without an ulterior motive. We must serve God with full devotion and purity of our hearts to receive his unmerited blessing.
God values the work that comes with faith. As a Christian, it is our duty to serve God with a pure heart.Click to tweet
