Be like the Master

Written by Alfred Ofori Agyemang.

"Each one should use whatever gift he or she has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms." 1 Peter 4:10

It is common to see and hear that people are now too busy even when it comes to serving God and fellow humans. Varied excuses are given in order to avoid our duties as Christians. But we must all admit that our duty is to work for God’s work and serve others.

One of the greatest legacies of our Master Jesus Christ was that He was a servant of His people. Even though He is the Master, He was humble enough to serve and wash the feet of His Apostles. Jesus said, “But I am among you as one who serves.” (Luke 22:27).

Jesus Christ did not only serve but also taught his followers to serve everywhere they are. “Whoever serves me must follow me, and where I am my servant also will be” John 12:26. God is so wonderful he gave all humanity the talents to serve in different capacities within the church and outside. We should never see serving as punishment or inferior duties but as service to God. “Each one should use whatever gift he or she has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” (1 Peter 4:10).

When we serve others, we serve Jesus. “Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for people, since you know that you will receive an inheritance from the Lord as a reward. It is the Lord Christ you are serving.” (Colossians 3:23-24).

When we serve, we are blessed. “If any person would serve me, let that person follow me; and where I am there shall also my servant be; if any person serves me, that person will the Father honor.” John 12:26. Choose to serve well today and be lifted like our Master.
