Today I am posting a Marriage Monday over at Woman to Woman. We are talking about taking care of the master bedroom. Drop by and share your thoughts.
We do not serve to convert. We serve because we have been converted. ~Bobby Hawk
Yesterday Jeremy and I had the pleasure of visiting the church of an old friend. When he said the above quote, my eyes popped wide open and I wanted to shout, "yes!"
So many times we choose to serve just to "convert" people to Jesus. Then when they do not respond how we would like them to, we become disappointed, sometimes angry, and we often give up. This is the wrong way to look at serving.
We should serve others just because it is the right thing to do. Serving because Jesus served. Because we have already been "converted" to a life of Christ. And while we are serving, others will see our hearts and this is what leads them to Christ.
