Serving One Another in God’s Love

Some days ago, during devotions and prayer, my Lord planted this in my heart. As I meditate on it daily, it grows and grows:

It’s not about me:

You will do Your work in me as I do Your work in serving others.

Several Bible verses support this. I leave one passage here, and ask that you leave your thoughts and pertaining verses in the comments.

Let nothing be done through strife or vainglory; but in lowliness of mind let each esteem other better than themselves.  Look not every man on his own things, but every man also on the things of others. Philippians 2.3, 4

God bless you.

  1. What shall it profit a man to gain the whole world and lose his soul. This scripture has been chasing me around the past couple weeks. Fame, fortune, possessions, notarity, wealth…none of this matters in the end. But if God were to bless us with any one of these things, it is He who gets the glory for giving it to us.
    The scripture you gave speaks to me that we need to always remember that when God uses us, it is He who does the work, not us.
    Another scripture chasing me is…Some plant, some water but God gives the increase. We cannot take credit for witnessing to someone or seeing their lives change for the better when they come to God. For it is He who gave the increase not us.

  2. Wow, God’s giving you some deep and wonderful things to meditate upon, my Amy! I’m pretty sure, when we get to Heaven, I will be amazed at how much of everything was of God. I mean, I know it’s all of God now, but I don’t think I have the full impact of it, and how much I need to give and give to God daily.
    “…when God uses us, it is He who does the work, not us.” – I love that.

  3. “‘I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you welcomed me, I was naked and you clothed me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.’ Then the righteous will answer him, saying, ‘Lord, when did we see you hungry and feed you, or thirsty and give you drink? And when did we see you a stranger and welcome you, or naked and clothe you? And when did we see you sick or in prison and visit you?’ And the King will answer them, ‘Truly, I say to you, as you did it to one of the least of these my brothers, you did it to me.’” Matthew 25:35-40
