Topic: Serve one another – Higher Every Day – Pastor W. F. Kumuyi. [Tuesday, June 6, 2017]
“If I then, your Lord and Master, have washed your feet; ye also ought to wash one another’s feet” (John 13:14).
A young mother was busy cleaning the chairs in the church just before the members started trickling in for their evening meeting. “Mama,” cried Helen to her mother, “why is it that you are always the only one coming to clean the church? “Why are you always serving alone in this church?” “Helen, you are very wrong,” the mother replied. “I only clean these chairs and then sit down. During the service, other people serve too.
The Pastor does the preaching, the ushers take attendance, collect and count offerings; the children teachers teach and watch over the children, the security men keep watch around the building for any intruder, the choir do the singing, while the electrical and electronics people ensure good lighting and sound output. I am not alone dear, we are simply serving one another.” Do you know that we are to serve one another in this life? Do you willingly and readily make yourself available for service? Be a willing, humble server.
Challenge: Learn to serve others.
Prayer: Lord, give me a humble heart to serve others.
