  Sermon on Determination To Serve God


Good morning, dear brothers and sisters in Christ. Today, we will explore the profound and fulfilling topic of working for God. Our lives as Christians are not just about believing but also about serving—actively working for the Kingdom of God. Our service to God encompasses all aspects of our lives, from our daily tasks to our dedicated ministries. Let's delve into the Scriptures to understand how we are called to serve and the principles that should guide our work for God.

1: The Calling to Service (Ephesians 2:10)

"For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them." God has crafted each of us with a unique purpose and has prepared good works for us to do. Our calling to service is not an afterthought but a part of God's divine plan. Understanding this calling helps us to see the significance of our contributions to His Kingdom.

2: Working with Excellence (Colossians 3:23)

"Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men." Working with excellence means giving our best in all we do, knowing that we are ultimately serving the Lord. Whether in our jobs, our homes, or our communities, our dedication and effort reflect our reverence for God. Excellence in work is an act of worship, honoring God with the talents and opportunities He has given us.

3: The Motivation of the Heart (1 Corinthians 10:31)

"So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God." Our motivation in serving must be to glorify God. When our hearts are aligned with the desire to honor Him, our actions become expressions of our love and devotion. This motivation transforms ordinary tasks into sacred acts of service, reflecting the glory of God in every aspect of our lives.

4: Dependence on God’s Power (John 15:5)

"I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he it is that bears much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing." Effective service requires dependence on God's power. Recognizing that apart from Him we can do nothing keeps us humble and reliant on His strength. As we abide in Christ, He empowers us to bear fruit in our work, ensuring that our efforts have lasting impact.

5: The Spirit of Serving (Mark 10:45)

"For even the Son of Man came not to be served but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many." Jesus Himself exemplified the spirit of serving. He came to serve, not to be served. This spirit of humility and selflessness should permeate our service to others. By following His example, we learn to serve with love, compassion, and a willingness to put others before ourselves.

 6: The Reward of Faithful Work (Matthew 25:21)

"His master said to him, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master.’" Faithful work for God is rewarded. Our faithfulness in small tasks prepares us for greater responsibilities and blessings. God recognizes and honors our dedication, and there is joy in knowing that our service pleases Him and advances His Kingdom.

7: Testimony Through Work (Matthew 5:16)

"In the same way, let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven." Our work serves as a testimony to the world. When others see our good works, they are drawn to the light of Christ within us. Our actions can lead others to glorify God and inspire them to seek Him. This is a powerful way to witness and share our faith through everyday activities.
