Good Morning Warrior!
Word for the Day:
“Passion For Service”
Text: Deut. 4:20
“But the LORD has taken you and brought you out of the iron furnace, out of Egypt, to be His people, an inheritance, as you are this day.”
The “Passion For Service” is on our menu for Breakfast this morning. Oh Wow! “When I think of the Goodness of Jesus - and ALL He’s Done For Me ?
My Soul Cries Out Hallelujah!
I Thank God For Saving Me!!!
This is Our Passion For Service; A Grateful Heart! Ooooh Rah!
He Saved Me To Serve Him!
Our Passion For Service Flows from a Grateful Heart.
Moses is reminding Israel of the Goodness of God; that they have “seen” and “heard.” They heard the audible voice of God! They saw the Pillar of Fire and the Pillar of Cloud - God’s Visible Presence! In spite of what they saw and heard Israel still turned aside into the ‘self-worship’ of idolatry. They forgot the Covenant of the Lord - and their Promised Inheritance. Moses warned them that if they continued in this rebellion that God would scatter them all over the earth (Deut.4:24-31).
This happened to Israel and it can happen to us too. Is our Passion For Service fading and cooling down? Is our Service becoming a ‘heavy burden,’ that weighs us down with the cares of people, our image, how we ‘look’ in the eyes of the people we serve? These cares and weariness belong at the altar of the cross! Our Commander says “Cast your cares upon Me for I Care For You!” (1Pet.5:7). He invites us to “Come to Me, all you who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls.
For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”(Matt.11:28-30)
We need to Remember and Rehearse “..The Goodness of Jesus, and ALL He’s Done For You - then, Your Soul Will Cry out HALLELUJAH!! And you’ll Thank God For Saving You To Serve. Oh a Grateful Heart is a heart filled with Joy! The Joy of the Lord is our Strength (Neh.8:10). For the Joy that was set before Our Commander Jesus Christ, He endured the Cross!(Heb.12:2) Oh How the Warrior Loves to Serve God when they Consider the Goodness of Jesus and ALL He’s Done for them.....
Our Salvation, our Deliverance from the iron furnace of sin, our adoption by God as His son and daughter, our inheritance as a partaker of His divine nature, being made a joint heir with Jesus Christ, Son of God Son of Man, having ALL things pertaining to life and godliness NOW! (2Pet.1:1-4).
We have ALL His Goodness NOW, we don’t have to wait for it - He HAS given all to us now.
Oh, Come on Warrior! Let the passion burn and the joy rise up in your heart. Rest in the Goodness of your Commander, enter into His Courts with Thanksgiving and Praise, Rehearsing His Goodness - and ALL He’s Done For You! Let this fuel your Passion For Service to your King - and spill over into the lives of people you serve every day as a Warrior of their Kingdom of God! Oooh Rah!
Warrior at your side,
