Saved to serve!

Friday marked the 50th anniversary of JFK’s murder. While the conspiracy theories continue to grow, so do the famous words of his inaugural speech as US President (20 January 1961):

‘Ask not what your country can do for you; ask what you can do for your country.’

He encouraged his people to think of others. That is, serve and love others.

Many years before this, God brought his people to Mt Sinai and made his inaugural speech to them as the LORD God who had just saved them. It’s what we call the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:1–17).

God encouraged his people to love him and love others. That is, make God number one and put others before self. That is what he saved his people for: saved to serve.

As Christians we have the best example ever of serving: the life and death of our Saviour Jesus Christ. As we follow Jesus, and grow to become like him, let’s do it with joy remembering we were saved to serve.

What are some ways we can serve God and others this week?

In Christ, Tory Cayzer.
