Let your service be to God, not man. Man does not hold your future in his hands. People may slander, tell lies, and show evil towards you. Pray for them. For they know not what they do. Remember God loves you.
When we serve God we are to display humility and God’s character. We are never to let our positions or titles become our character. Nor should we deny God’s love to those we encounter when we serve. We are to show love and who we are in God’s kingdom in our service. For, it is who we are to others in God’s eyes that he will see. Love all your sisters and brothers just as He. God loves you. He will reward you.
Titles are not what God will honor when judgment day comes. But he will judge you according to your works – how faithfully you served, when the day comes. Remember, you are a reflection of God when you serve his people. Attitudes and disposition that are not in alignment with his will can negatively affect other people. Do what pleases God, not people. God holds your future in his hands. Don’t let man deter God’s plan. Magnify the Lord. Serve and give honor to Him. You are an ambassador of Christ. Let your work for God speak for itself. Worship Him.
Don’t hate the sinner, hate the sin. Hate the evil that resides within. Work to overcome it. Love everyone in spite of it. God loves each and every one of us. Don’t let the evil intentions of others drive you away from what God has promised.
Acquaintances are people you meet and know of you. And just because they may have known you for a long time, they don’t know you. Don’t get it confused with who you are in Christ. Don’t let the attitudes and intentions of man towards you be your light. Don’t let it define who you are. You are a child of God. Do the work of God.
They lied on Jesus but it didn’t stop him from fulfilling the plan God designed for him. Nor should it let you be removed from God’s promises or Him. It doesn’t matter how people see you. Or the evil intentions or motives they may have towards you. See yourself as God sees you.
Be steadfast, diligent, and committed to the work God has called you to do. The only thing that matters is what God sees in that which he has placed inside you. Do your best to display the characteristics of God no matter how others may treat you. God is all knowing and sees everything. Put it in his hands. He will take care of everything.
God holds your future in his hands. Not man. Let God handle it. He has the final say. His judgment will stand.
Be blessed! -JD
