Service is not optional! In fact, I was saved to serve, and you were too! Day 29, Accepting Your Assignment, really spoke to/blessed me. So often we walk through life with an inward focus…wondering what we can get. This is our mistake. We need to approach life saying, “What can I give?” What I love about this chapter the most is found on page 229 when the author writes:
Have you ever wondered why God doesn’t just immediately take us to heaven the moment we accept his grace?
This question is deep and speaks volumes. God doesn’t take us straight to heaven because He wants us to fulfill our purpose in this world…which is given to us by Him, not the world; not our boss, not our parents, not our spouse, not our friends, not our school, but God! God and God alone! We were created and saved to serve. Point. Blank. Period.
Ask Yourself: What is holding me back from accepting God’s call to serve him?
