Believers Must Bring Good Strive to God
(Passage: Philemon 1)
God will reward people who faithfully serve him with all benefits of life. Jehovah appreciates honest services; he will bless his faithful observers. Paul, on behalf of God, appreciated Philemon for being a good steward of Jesus Christ.
Paul commended Philemon,
“I thank my God always, making mention of you in my prayers, because I hear of your love and of the faith which you have toward the Lord Jesus and toward all the saints; and I pray that the fellowship of your faith may become effective through the knowledge of every good thing which is in you for Christ’s sake. For I have come to have much joy and comfort in your love, because the hearts of the saints have been refreshed through you, brother.” (Philemon 1:4-7 NASB).
Purpose of serving God Unfolded
Christianity requires faithfulness of service to God. Anyone who claims to be a Christian needs to understand the importance of faithful services! Believers must remember that God can clearly measure and determine how much we are committed to him. He will honor those who faithfully serve him.
Not just any service is meaningful to God. A service expected to satisfy God must come from a pure heart, and it must be indeed regarded as Humility in service to God. God’s faithful observers will enjoy his benefits in this life and the one to come.
Since God can gauge the level of our commitments to him, believers must consider it necessary to faithfully serve him! Our pious efforts will motivate God to shower us with his unlimited blessings.
Prayer for humility in service to God
Dear God, I understand that you want your children to faithfully serve you so that you can be proud to bless them. I promise my commitment to you from today! I will serve you with all my strength. Please let the Holy Spirit empower me to meet your standard! For in the name of Jesus Christ I make my requests. Amen.
