Wednesday, January 02, 2013
When we give our lives to God, we need to ask Him how we can better serve Him and help others in all areas of our lives. Asking Him how we can better serve Him in our careers and help others will allow us to put Him first in our jobs. Asking Him how we can better serve Him and help others in our finances will take the focus off what we think we need and put the focus on Him and the needs of others. Giving our lives to God isn’t just talk. It’s action. We need to ask God what we should change in our lives to better serve Him in 2013 and be ready to take action on His answer.
Romans 15:1b-3a “We must not just please ourselves. 2 We should help others do what is right and build them up in the Lord. 3 For even Christ didn’t live to please himself.” (NLT)
Dear Lord, help us to live today not to please ourselves but to please You and to help others. Help us to stop merely talking about what we can do to help others and to begin taking action to do what You want us to do. Show us how to better ourselves so we can help others better themselves. In Jesus’ name. Amen.
