TEXT: ACTS 6:1-7

MEMORY VERSE: “Wherefore, brethren, look ye out among you seven men of honest report, full of the Holy Ghost and wisdom, whom we may appoint over this business” (ACTS 6:3).

At the most basic level, all that God created was made to serve Him. This is true of human beings in general, and is even more relevant to believers. Serving God is what we were made to do as His creatures, but our service has been corrupted by sin which renders our service unacceptable to God.

Jesus came to redeem mankind from the ruin and corruption of sin, to purify unto Himself a peculiar people zealous of good works. An important part of the gospel is that in Jesus Christ, we can begin to serve God again acceptably. Christian service is both a duty and a privilege.

Our text today highlights the importance of upholding a high standard of godliness and morality in God’s service. It is only a spiritual man that can render spiritual service unto God.

We must serve God in Spirit and in truth. We must serve in faith and obedience. We must serve Him in humility and absolute surrender. We must serve God in wisdom and power of the Holy Ghost.

QUOTE: Christian service is both a duty and a privilege.

CHALLENGE: Only a spiritual man can render spiritual service.

PRAYER: I want to serve You to the end, dear Lord.
