If you need a miracle, you might consider serving. When the water turned to wine, it was the guy carrying the water who experienced it turning into wine as he delivered it. The guests had no idea what just happened; they only benefited from the result. Those who were serving experienced the miracle, that was the real gift.
Serving Is A Form Of Worship
God loves thankful heart and gratitude is something God appreciates. When we serve, we do for others what Christ has done for us. We put love into action. ‘Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms… so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ’ (Ephesians 4:10).
Refocusing The Lens On What Is Important
By serving we take the focus off of ourselves and shift it onto others. We begin to see others as Jesus sees them and we see Jesus IN others. ‘And the King will answer and say to them, “Assuredly, I say to you, since you did it to one of the least of these My brethren, you did it to Me.”’ (Matthew 25:40)
Lord, I decree and declare that each person reading this today is seizing the opportunities in front of them to serve others. They are hospitable without grumbling. They have a ministry and opportunity to serve in whatever capacity that is before them on a daily basis. You are leading each of them in the diversity of activity that is so characteristic of your excellent creativity (1 Corinthians 12:6). I encourage you to serve with what you have, where you are right now. Amen!
