God wants us to come to Him just as we are. So many people may say when I do this or do that and when I get my life straightened out then I can become a Christian. God is the only one that can change us. On our own it’s impossible.
It amazed me when I got saved how my wants began to change, the things I use to love, I didn’t love them anymore and the things I hated I began to love. I’m talking about church and things of God.
After becoming a Christian you have a desire to tell others about what God has done for you. And let them know He can do the same for them, if they will accept Him as their Lord and Saviour.
What an honor to serve God. You don’t have to be a missionary or become a pastor or even a teacher. Each day we probably meet people that never go to church or open the Bible.
We should take every opportunity to share the plan of salvation and tell them that God loves them and He gave His life so we all could have a home in heaven.
“Serve the Lord with gladness: come before his presence with singing.” Psalms 100:2
It’s an honor to serve God.
