Serving God?

Do you ever worry that you are becoming luke warm? I worry about this all the time.. The Lord has done so much for me, how can I possibly prove myself to be a "good and faithful servant"? I believe that this is a struggle that we all face. I am an advocate of prayerful focus. If we stay focused on our unworthiness, and God's Holiness, EVERYDAY, and we pray for him to give us a servant's heart, He will  give us opportunities to serve.
There are a number of ways that the Lord may ask us to serve. It may be something spectacular such as evangelism, or speaking in public on his behalf. Perhaps it will be something small, but still important, for example:
  • Helping your neighbor, with anything..                  
  • Being friendly to a sales clerk...
  • Visiting someone in a nursing home or a hospital...
  • Calling someone you haven't talked to in a while..
  • Sharing your faith..
  • Encouraging a young person, a family member, friend, or even your minister..

God gives us opportunities everyday. All we have to do is take a deep breath, look around and then jump on them!
