Is It Futile To Serve God?

The Bible reveals that many of the Israelites grew weary of serving God. They found it a burden to worship as God had instructed.  In Malachi 3:13-18 God reminds them of their lack of zeal for Him.  I am afraid that sometimes this sin still lingers in the hearts of some of God’s people.  They grow tired of faithfully attending worship, singing, praying, giving and living as God has told us to do.

Let’s try to remember that God’s way gives joy and satisfaction to those who really love Him and serve Him.  Hebrews 11:6, tells us that God rewards those who earnestly seek Him. God told Abraham that his reward would be “very great” if he would continue to serve (Gen 15:1).  Jesus reminded us that those who suffer will have great reward (Mat 5:12).  Solomon taught us “the one who sows righteousness gets a sure reward.”

Let’s not forget the blessings of serving the Lord.  In fact we should spend much of our time extolling the riches God gives to us as His children.  This way others will see the joys of being a Christian.

    Hi Joe, nice job on the website. Would you do posts for people who struggle with their faith? I think it is really needed…the existence of God, proof that the Bible is God’s word, generally apologetics.

    Blessings!
