How to Serve With a Heart of Joy

Serving is a simple and noble assignment that pours from our heart. And it is perhaps the most obvious sign of Christ-like maturity. When you are serving others, your heartfelt, Spirit-filled service is a dazzling reflection of the heart of your Savior, the greatest servant who ever lived, the One who set the standard when He…
  • served others whether it was convenient or not
  • served others whether they deserved it or not
  • served others whether they thanked Him or not
  • served others with sacrificial love
  • served you by giving His life as a ransom for your soul

O Lord, give me a heart of joy so I can follow in Your steps and gladly serve others. When my heart tires of serving, remind me of Yourself and Your holy hands washing the disciples’ feet! May I become Your twin in selflessly tending to the needs of others. Amen.
