DAILY BREAD OF LIFE

(KJV.)  EPHESIANS 6:5-8


(5)  Servants,  be obedient to them that are your masters according to the flesh, with fear and trembling, in singleness of your heart, as unto Christ;
(6)  Not with eyeservice, as men-pleasers; but as the servants of Christ, doing the will of God from the heart;
(7)  With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men:
(8)  Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.

LET'S TRUST AND OBEY


Brethren, this world is full of servants, each and every soul at one point and time, from the time we wake up in the morning until bedtime, serves one another;  regardless of what we do, for our own selves, one another, at home, secular world, in the body of Christ, it does not matter what we do, we are servers;  for example, we serve our own bodies, when we take care of ourselves, sleep and eat well, cleanse and nourish our bodies, keep members in holiness, (Romans 6:13); we serve our houses when we clean up, give away, throw out things that are not useful, but cluttering our space; we serve our children, family members, when we cook meals, launder clothes, pay bills, tuitions, hospital visits, etc.; in the secular world, we serve one another, work together, reach a common goals, achieve greater profits; we serve in the world, however, who owns this world?,  my answer is, Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior owns the world; indirectly or indirectly, we serve him even in the secular environment;  in the body of Christ, we serve Jesus Christ directly, while we serve as ushers, choristers, deacons, pastors, preachers, bishops, etc.;  regardless of where we serve, what we do in this world, we are servers, serve one another, serve our Father through Jesus Christ our Lord and Savior.

If we serve Jesus Christ, regardless of what we do in this world, then, let us do what we do for him, with greater strength, utilize our gifts and talents, to maximize capabilities, receive earthly, eternal blessings. (Colossians 3:24):  for whatever good thing we do in this world, we will receive measures of good blessings, whether believers or unbelievers.

CONCLUSION:


Brethren, let us serve Jesus Christ with all our minds, souls, bodies; without grudgings, complains, reluctances, with perseverances, run the race that we may receive the prize. (Hebrew 12:1).  Amen and Amen!


QUOTE OF THE DAY:


(KJV.)  Romans 6:16  Know ye not, that to whom ye yield yourselves servants to obey, his servants ye are to whom ye obey;  whether of sin unto death, or of obedience unto righteousness?
