14th Anniversary Devotionals: Day 3

EXPERIENCE Ministry – The Dream Team

“The people said to Joshua, “We will serve the Lord our God. We will obey him alone.”

Joshua 24:24 NLT

Serving on The Dream Team at C3 is more than holding open a door or teaching kids about God – it’s about serving others through serving God. At the heart of God’s love for people is a servant heart, one made whole by the serving of others. Since we were created in His image, we were created to serve others. But even when we serve others, we should do so from the perspective of serving God first. See, true fulfillment and happiness in this life doesn’t come from money or power; it comes from the direct act of serving our God. When we serve Him, we are honoring, praising, and giving glory to the Father. All of us serve a god, whether it’s money, possessions, or the one true God. When He is our God, we will find ourselves serving Him naturally, and obeying Him alone.

 

Prayer:

Praise God for letting you serve Him and for giving you joy when you do so. Ask for forgiveness for the times you served another God in your life. Thank God for creating you in a way that finds fulfillment when serving Him and others. Thank Him for all the people C3 has served over the last 14 years. Pray that our church and its family would serve God through serving others each and every week. Pray for ways you can serve others, and as a result God, more in your life. Pray for an army of volunteers to jump on board in getting plugged in to serve in the life of C3.
