In Service to the Lord By Brenda Drake

John 12:25-26
He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal. If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.

In Service to the Lord

Pointed in the right direction, with eyes focused on the goal;
Self is laid aside and God is in control.
Others become more important as God has designed.
Your life is offered in service as you give God your time,
You have heard it is more blessed to give than to receive;
The truth is when you give you will get more than you need.
The world’s way and God’s way are worlds apart;
The world reasons with the mind and God reasons with the heart.
The world demands more with self and greed in control,
God’s way says when you give to you more from Him overflows.
The kind heart is poured out with love to their fellow man,
With an understanding, open mind, and with a generous open hand.
Jesus is the example He laid His life down,
To prepare the way so salvation could be found.
He gave His all for the fallen race,
So that they too would know the Father’s sweet embrace.
His undeserved favor we will eternally thank Him for.
What a great honor to be use on earth to serve the Lord.
