I. Abel's Offering: Excellence in Worship (Genesis 4:3-4)

Our journey begins with Abel, who offered the best of his flock as a sacrifice to God. Genesis 4:3-4 tells us that "the Lord had regard for Abel and his offering." Abel's offering was not just about the substance but the heart behind it. He exemplified excellence in worship by giving God his best, demonstrating that true worship is about offering our hearts and resources in devotion.

II. The Service of Bezalel and Oholiab: Skill and Dedication (Exodus 35:30-35)

Working is a good thing (Eph. 4:28). Serving the Lord will keep us busy

III. The Example of Mary of Bethany: The Importance of Personal Worship (Matthew 26:6-13)

Matthew 26:6-13 introduces us to Mary of Bethany, who anointed Jesus with costly perfume. Her act of extravagant devotion illustrates the importance of personal worship. Mary's willingness to pour out her best for Jesus challenges us to consider how we can offer our most valuable possessions, time, and love in our personal relationship with the Lord.

Lastly, the Parable of the Talents in Matthew 25:14-30 teaches us the importance of faithfulness in administering the resources and gifts God has entrusted to us. The servants who multiplied their talents demonstrated good stewardship. They recognized that serving God with excellence includes using our talents and resources wisely for His kingdom.

VI. And how do we know whether we truly serve Him?

Some people believe in God and follow his teachings; others believe in God but don’t necessarily follow his teachings. Serve is follow his teachings.

Samuel: Remove foreign gods, turn your heart completely to the Lord and He will deliver you

To know whether we are serving God, we must first understand who he is. He is not just some distant figure sitting up there watching us. He is our Creator, our Savior, and our Lord.
