Devote Yourself to Serving I Daily Walk Devotion

God placed in each human an innate desire to give ourselves to other people. When you fulfill that desire, it produces a sense of joy and satisfaction when you neglect it a sense of frustration starts to build. Jesus set the example. He came to serve and not be served. (Mark 10:45) Devote yourself to serving.

‭‭Acts‬ ‭6:2-4‬

And the twelve summoned the full number of the disciples and said, “It is not right that we should give up preaching the word of God to serve tables. Therefore, brothers, pick out from among you seven men of good repute, full of the Spirit and of wisdom, whom we will appoint to this duty. But we will devote ourselves to prayer and to the ministry of the word.

Whenever things begin to grow there will going be growing pains. The early church was no exception. The everyday needs had become too much for the Apostles to handle on their own and they recognized what was important, preaching and praying. They delegated to the job of serving the needs to the Deacons, or servants. These men were in any way lesser than the Apostles; they just fulfilled different roles.

Play a Role

Every person has a role to play in the church. We have all been equipped and called to serve the saints and to evangelize the lost. How that plays out in your life depends on your gifts. There are those who are called to preach and pray, and there are those who are called to serve and support. Each role is vital to the mission of the church.

Devote Yourself to Serving

Seven men were chosen to head up the duty of feeding the saints. They had good reputations and were full of the Holy Spirit and wisdom. These three qualities are something that all of us can exhibit. A good reputation means that you are a person who keeps your word and can get along with others. Working in the power of the Spirit and wisdom multiplies the work that we are capable of doing on our own. Devote yourself to serving.
