TODAY’S PROPHETIC THOUGHT
When you testify of me, words are only part of the story – your story. Remember that actions speak louder than words. Demonstrate My heart. Let the lost see their redeemer in the way you serve. You are My solution.
IT’S A POWERFUL THING
I know for a fact that serving Jesus will change your life. When I say that, I’m not saying it from some high and lofty tower. I’m saying from the lowest of the low places – because I’ve been there – that God Almighty is faithful. He’s faithful.
There are three different premises I want to give to you today that I can tell you have absolutely changed my life when it comes to serving.
The first one is this: You get Jesus into any situation by serving Him in that situation. Broke? Serve Jesus with your money by tithing or sowing into Kingdom projects and people. Depressed or lonely? Bring Jesus into that dark place by serving someone worse off than you. It will bring you joy, I’m telling you.
God is not unjust; he will not forget your work and the love you have shown him as you have helped his people and continue to help them. – Hebrews 6:10
Second, serving is power because serving actually demonstrates Jesus to a lost and hurting world. I’m not talking about works here. I’m talking about acts – just like the disciples when they got filled with the Holy Spirit. Feed the hungry. Clothe the naked. Prophesy over the lost, heal the sick and raise the dead, amen.
Finally, the love of God is found in serving and selflessness. When you put someone else before you, when you put your shoes on a prisoner in a trash dump or spend the money you were saving for a trip to Disney World on freeing a slave across the world that you’ll never meet, you’ll know the love of God.
The amazing thing is, so will they! Serving and selflessness should be the calling card of every drop-dead, sold-out Jesus freak. Is it yours? When was the last time you demonstrated Jesus? If it’s been a while, serve somebody. It’s a powerful thing.
