"..inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me" (Matt. 25:34-40).
Choose to know and then serve God by practically serving others, believers. Be diff.. why live for the fading-dull things of this world, or to serve yourself as so many are doing?
We need a high view of God who came here to serve those who don't deserve it. We need to maintain a great reverence for Him ..with honesty and some elbow grease if you will. We need a red-hot passion from Him for reaching others that He dearly loves, so people headed for a real Hell will turn and go to heaven through Jesus.
Yes, humbly serve.. just reject becoming an overly-busy-workaholic-for-God (that's basically called idol worship..), serving so much that you no longer take the time to get alone and minister to the Lord (c Matthew 25:34-40).
Your first priority ministry is unto Him. Why love ministry (or anything/anyone else) more than the Chief Minister - Christ? That'd be a lame option.
"God's desire that we return to him, love him, and serve him faithfully has not only the reward of forgiveness, but the mind-boggling assurance that "I will walk among you and be your God, and you shall be my people." ~ M. Meberg
Thinkin' about how.."minister" actually means servant. Love to see and hear about how my dad, Kim (whose ofc in Dana Point had sold more real estate than all other offices in California), along with cleaning his church building weekly, almost every single day goes and serves the lowest of the low, who have the most severe bondages imaginable, but are honestly seeking to break free. Musing over, "For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many" (Mk. 10:45). facebook.com/ShareJesus
