The Best of the Portals of Prayer

Read: Titus 2

“We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works.”
Ephesians 2:10

Saved to Serve

God has called us to His kingdom for a purpose. He has chosen us to be instruments for good. Jesus has redeemed us that we may “be His own and live under Him in His kingdom and serve Him in everlasting righteousness, innocence and blessedness”. Faith is the root of Christian life, and good works are the fruit. Without faith, it is impossible to render any service pleasing to God. But faith must also bear fruit, for faith without good works is dead.
Jesus set us a pattern for life in His own life. He said: “The Son of man came not to be served, but to serve” [Mark 10:45]. Similarly, service is the real test of the Christian life today. By it, people determine the sincerity of our faith. “You will recognize them by their fruits”, Jesus said [Matthew 7:20].
The Holy Spirit has created the “New Life” in us by faith in Christ so that we might serve God. If our lives follow His will and purpose, we shall act as His lips to speak words of truth, comfort, and hope. We shall be His feet to run errands of mercy and love. We shall be His hands to be His for deeds of kindness. We shall be His heart to share His peace.

O Christ, You did die for me. Help me to be faithful in service to You. Amen.
