In the midst of such pain and brokenness, the followers of Christ cannot stand idly by, for God calls them into the mission of reconciling all things, first by easing suffering and then by.

Knowing that Jesus’ life was perfect in regard to putting God first, we should look at the way He lived His life and imitate Him, attempting to “walk in the manner that He walked” (1 John ). Jesus’ life was characterized by submission to the Father’s will, service to others, and prayer.

Peter addresses the importance of serving God in 1 Peter “Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.

You cannot serve God and wealth. That’s the way God meant for it to be. The truth is, serving God by serving others is not always easy. Sometimes you’re going to get discouraged. So what do you do when you start to get discouraged. You remember two things.

First, you remember that you’re going to receive a reward that’s going to go on for eternity. By the word “serve,” I am not referring first to the content of what you do when serving but its essence. When I say you should serve God, it means that your entire life, which includes how you live, and what you think, say or do, must be an act of service to God.
