Becoming Outstanding In The Lord's Service : Inspired By Pst Itoro Isong
One of the way anyone can gain recognition in his or her endeavour is to be OUTSTANDING with profane success. No one wants to be associated with failures,just as it is commonly said:
"Success attracts or has a lot of friends while failure as no friend"
Every employer will obviously like to have employee that will be outstanding in his or her job; this equally applies in every facet of life
The big question is; as a christian do we need to render to God outstanding service as it relate to our christian faith?
Let's not forget:
But without faith it is impossible to please him: for he that cometh to God must believe that he is, and that he is a rewarder of them that diligently seek him.
I will simply picked out two words that is related to this post
Anyone that gives God a faithful service deserve blessings from God in the form of reward and let me clearly state that God does not give award but He gives reward. Award can be compromise: giving to a wrong person because he or she belong to popular class of people with affluence but Reward is giving by a higher authority to anyone for properly executing responsibility(ies) that has positively created impact. On the same playing field, anyone that is diligent in his or her responsibility(ies) ofcourse will surely produce positive result and reward in due time
Does God Deserve To Be Given Outstanding Service?
I believe the answer will be a profane big YES!
Can this be possible ? The answer is another big YES!
Darius decided to appoint a hundred and twenty governors to hold office throughout his empire.
2 In addition, he chose Daniel and two others to supervise the governors and to look after the king's interests.
3 Daniel soon showed that he could do better work than the other supervisors or the governors. Because he was so outstanding, the king considered putting him in charge of the whole empire.
Daniel 6:1-3(Good news Translation)
From the above Scripture, verse 3 shows that Daniel was outstanding in his duty and as a reward the king was to put him in charge of the entire empire
As a christian,your service to God is paramount, the best is only what suits God: don't forget the scenario of Cain and Abel on the occasion of their sacrifice; God accepted Abel's sacrifice because he gave his best while that of Cain was rejected because it was not good enough.
Every Christian should make up their minds to give their best which will equally result to being outstanding. More so, I will not forget to mention that it will cost you a lot to be outstanding in your service to God this is where sacrifice comes to play. If you love God as a christian you can render a sacrificial service to God .it really depends on your understanding of what service to God means and and your personal relationship with God.
What Does It Require To Be Outstanding In The Lord's Service
- Selfless(i.e sacrificial)
Whatever service we render to God its for our own good not to the good of God
"You don't get good to get God but you get God to get Good"
As a christian we can't out give God but We can give God and excellent service. Always know God deserves the best and only the best is good for God. Stay bless and be outstanding in your selfless service to this awesome Almighty God.
