ARE YOU SERVING THE LORD FOR HIM, OR FOR YOURSELF?

THIS IS VALUABLE INFORMATION FOR EVERY SERIOUS CHRISTIAN…..

I read my devotion for today from Max Lucado. It is soooooo very true and we all need to ”pay attention” to his words. Here it is…..

January 12, 2015 — Who Is the Servant?

Martha was distracted with much serving… But Mary has chosen that good part, which will not be taken away from her. — Luke 10:40-42 NKJV

imageMartha is worried about something good. She’s having Jesus over for dinner. She’s literally serving God. Her aim was to please Jesus. But she made a common, yet dangerous mistake. As she began to work for Him, her work became more important than her Lord. What began as a way to serve Jesus, slowly and subtly became a way to serve self… She has forgotten that the meal is to honor Jesus, not Martha……It’s easy to forget who is the servant and who is to be served. (Max Lucado)

Wow, wow, and wow! I had to learn this the hard way on a loooooong stretch of highway while walking in the hot summer sun and carrying a 12-foot cross. (Read the whole story in my book, The Secret Place, Revealed, at GetMyPDF.com) So, better to learn this at the feet of Jesus than on the side of a long lonely highway in the hot summer sun.

Have a great day!

In Him,
Pastor Kevin Kinchen
