The Privilege of Serving Him

The Privilege of Serving Him

Ephesians 3:7-8 (NLT) “By God’s grace and mighty power, I have been given the privilege of serving him by spreading this Good News. Though I am the least deserving of all God’s people, he graciously gave me the privilege of telling the Gentiles about the endless treasures available to them in Christ.”

Devotional Thought

I discovered in following the Lord, that what the scripture calls a living sacrifice, is a living privilege. It takes a while to discover, that I was not doing God any favour by serving Him.

I had great dreams and visions, which I planned to pursue immediately after I graduate from the university. But, I discovered in my final year in school, that God has another plan for my life, that has nothing to do with my dreams and visions.

I struggled with the idea of serving God in the work of the ministry, I do not want to get involved. My father was, and I was thinking, I could have a better life than him, with my dreams and visions. However, when I realized that I could not run away from God, I surrendered, and yielded to His plan for my life.

In the early days of serving Him, I considered serving as a sacrifice, because of what I gave up to accept the call. After a while, I realized that serving the Lord is not a sacrifice, it is a privilege.

Paul put it right, when he said, “By God’s grace and mighty power, I have been given the privilege of serving him…” Not all of us will serve Him, by preaching the gospel, but all of us have been given the privilege of serving Him in different ways.

It is time to embrace that privilege, your fulfilment in life is tied to serving the purpose, for which God created you. As long as you keep holding back, you deny yourself the joy of serving Him.

Let’s Talk About It:

What other thing is better than living for God?
