Service as an Act of Worship

Human beings are wired for worship, and what people worship is what they ultimately serve. 

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Human beings are wired for worship, and what people worship is what they ultimately serve. Did you get that? We ultimately serve who we worship. It’s why when it comes to serving others in the name of Jesus, it is not just an act of kindness or charity — no; rather, it is a way of exalting the Savior; and worshiping Him in a manner that is holy and pleasing. Just look at Romans chapter 12, where the Apostle Paul urges us to “offer our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God, for this is true and proper worship.” So friend, roll up your sleeves and serve others in Jesus name – even if it’s hard. Whether you greet guests at your church, visit the elderly at a nursing home, or wipe the drool off of your 3-month old baby — when you see it as an act of worship that is holy and pleasing to God, you can’t help but serve with a smile.
