Is Serving God A Choice.


John‬

13“There is no greater love than to lay down one’s life for one’s

friends. 14 You are my friends if you do what I command. 15 I no

longer call you slaves, because a master doesn’t confide in his

slaves. Now you are my friends, since I have told you everything

the Father told me. 16 You didn’t choose me. I chose you. I

appointed you to go and produce lasting fruit, so that the Father

will give you whatever you ask for, using my name. 17 This is my

command: Love each other.”


Romans‬

1“Brethren, my heart's desire and prayer to God for Israel is, that

they might be saved. 2 For I bear them record that they have a

zeal of God, but not according to knowledge. 3 For they being

ignorant of God's righteousness, and going about to establish

their own righteousness, have not submitted themselves unto the

righteousness of God.”


1“Dear brothers and sisters, the longing of my heart and my

prayer to God is for the people of Israel to be saved. 2 I know

what enthusiasm they have for God, but it is misdirected zeal. 3

For they don’t understand God’s way of making people right with

himself. Refusing to accept God’s way, they cling to their own way

of getting right with God by trying to keep the law.”


Serving the Lord is a commitment, an obligation it is

something that you look forward to each and everyday.

Serving the Lord is about building a relationship on a

spiritual level that will led to personal experiences.


How do I commit: Romans‬

9“If you openly declare that Jesus is Lord and believe in your

heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. 10

For it is by believing in your heart that you are made right with

God, and it is by openly declaring your faith that you are saved.

11 As the Scriptures tell us, “Anyone who trusts in him will never

be disgraced.””


Showing my love for Him; John‬

15“After breakfast Jesus asked Simon Peter, “Simon son of John,

do you love [agapao; to esteem, direction of the will and finding

joy in it] me more than these? ” “Yes, Lord,” Peter replied, “you

know I love you.” “Then feed my lambs,” Jesus told him. 16 Jesus

repeated the question: “Simon son of John, do you love me?”

“Yes, Lord,” Peter said, “you know I love you.” “Then take care of

my sheep,” Jesus said. 17 A third time he asked him, “Simon son

of John, do you love me?” Peter was hurt that Jesus asked the

question a third time. He said, “Lord, you know everything. You

know that I love you.” Jesus said, “Then feed my sheep. 18“I tell

you the truth, when you were young, you were able to do as you

liked; you dressed yourself and went wherever you wanted to go.

But when you are old, you will stretch out your hands, and others

will dress you and take you where you don’t want to go.” 19 Jesus

said this to let him know by what kind of death he would glorify

God. Then Jesus told him, “Follow me.””


It Reveals to other your relationship; Acts of the Apostles‬


“But God removed Saul and replaced him with David, a man

about whom God said, ‘I have found David son of Jesse, a man

after my own heart. He will do everything I want him to do.’”


Numbers‬

“But my servant Caleb has a different attitude than the others

have. He has remained loyal to me, so I will bring him into the

land he explored. His descendants will possess their full share of

that land.”


Putting Him first; Ephesians‬

25“For husbands, this means love your wives, just as Christ loved

the church. He gave up his life for her 26 to make her holy and

clean, washed by the cleansing of God’s word. 27 He did this to

present her to himself as a glorious church without a spot or

wrinkle or any other blemish. Instead, she will be holy and without

fault.”

Matthew‬

“Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously,

and he will give you everything you need.”


I show my commitment by keeping my vows; Proverbs‬

“Keep the commandments and keep your life; despising them

leads to death.”


Close; Serving God is not a choice but it is a commitment that I

am thankful for. I serve Him because He shows His love for me,

He provides for me, He protects me, He reveals Himself to me.

He has given me everything I need through Jesus that give me

the reassurance that I can declare what David said that the Lord

is my shepherd and I shall not want.
