2/4/14 Daily Devotion

Ephesians 2:8-9 For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith and this not from yourselves, it is the gift of God not by works, so that no one can boast.

Serving within the church will not save us from eternal punishment in Hell. Serving within the church will not bring to us the forgiveness of our sins. Serving within the church is a byproduct of our salvation. That means that we serve because we are saved, we serve because of our salvation. When we come to understand the need for forgiveness and salvation, we seek Christ and baptism. Following this, we should come to understand the importance of our service. For as we serve within the church, we open up avenues where others can walk into salvation, where others can find forgiveness. If we have been truly changed, we will be willing servants.

Prayer Starter:

Lord, help me become a willing servant of the church. Help me become a willing servant of You.
