Answering the Call to Serve

"You, my brothers and sisters, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the flesh; rather, serve one another humbly in love." - Galatians 5:13 
As you begin your day, reflect on the call to serve that God has placed upon your life. In a world that often encourages self-centered pursuits, God reminds us of the importance of serving others with humility and love.

Think about the people in your life and those you may encounter today. Who is God prompting you to reach out to? Who is in need of a kind word, a helping hand, or a listening ear?
It could be a friend struggling with loneliness, a neighbor facing a difficult situation, or a stranger in need of assistance. Pay attention to the nudges of the Holy Spirit and be open to opportunities to serve wherever you go.

Remember, serving others isn't just a suggestion; it's a calling. It's a tangible way to demonstrate the love of Christ to those around us and to make a positive impact in their lives.
So as you go about your day, ask yourself: Who has God put on my heart to serve today? And then step out in faith, trusting that God will use your willingness to serve for His glory and the benefit of others.

Each act of service, no matter how small, has the potential to make a difference in someone's life. Whether it's offering a listening ear, lending a helping hand, or simply sharing a smile, your willingness to serve can bring hope, encouragement, and light into the lives of those around you.
I want to challenge you to embrace the call to serve with humility and love, knowing that as you do, you are following in the footsteps of our Savior, who came not to be served, but to serve.
