Serving Christ joyfully

A disciple of Christ enjoys serving Christ. 

A disciple sees himself as a servant following the example of Christ. Jesus himself said, "I have set you an example that you should do as I have done" (John 13:15)

The disciple finds joy in serving Christ because he is serving the highest of all causes which is

the cause of Christ.  

Thom Rainer, in his book "I Will", says "It is time for a change among church members around the world to seek to serve rather than seek to be served.

Are you joyfully serving Christ? I f not I hope

you will begin  today!

What are you waiting for ?

I have recently read that each of us spends about one hour every day just waiting. 

Scripture teaches us we are also to wait on God. 

"Wait for the Lord; be strong and take heart and wait for the Lord" (Psalm 27:14). To wait on the Lord can mean to trust patiently in the Lord.

In what area(s) of your life do you need to wait on the Lord? Maybe a relationship, a career decision, the results of a medical test....? Whatever your situation I encourage you to continue waiting on the Lord. In doing so you will deepen your discipleship, be a witness to others, and glorify Him. 

The easter season

The Easter season is upon us and this includes Good Friday. I'm not exactly sure why it is called Good Friday but I think it is because of the good gift of salvation made possible by our Lord's willing sacrifice of himself on the cross. Every disciple of Christ needs to spend time on Good Friday thanking Christ for his sacrifice.

Easter Sunday is our celebration of the great news of our Lord's resurrection and it validates everything else Christ did. It proves he is the only Messiah. Henry Morris said,, "The bodily resurrection of Jesus Christ from the dead is the crowning proof of Christianity. If the resurrection did not take place, then Christianity is a false religion. If it did take place, then Christ is God and the Christian faith is the absolute truth."

The resurrection did take place. In Luke 24:5-6 we read "...Why do you look for the living among the dead? He is not here; he has risen!..."

Have you received Christ as your Savior? If so I trust you will celebrate his resurrection on Easter Sunday.
