From our Pastor:

         Greetings in that Name above every name, Jesus our Lord

I was pondering the thought about what sort of living sacrifice I'm giving to the Lord. He tells us in Romans 12:1 that it is our reasonable service. It's not excessive in amount, nor is it beyond our ability. This service won't cost you much of your time or be too expensive for you to do, so let us examine ourselves and see if we are doing anywhere near a reasonable service to the Lord.

Would you say that you think about this serving the Lord as an important duty of your living sacrifice of something that amounts to a sacrifice for you to do? Does it take some of your time, for example, that you would normally do other activities? This offering of yourself, is it sacred time that you have planned out with doing some sort of service in Jesus’ name like visiting the sick or spending some appointed time in prayer for others?

It might do us well to consider just how obedient we are to this charge God has given us. Reckon we would get a low grade on a test for our amount of sacrificial service we give to the Lord? Would you be able to say that your service is costing you something; time, labor, going out visiting?

There's an old hymn with these words in it; “Give of your best to the Master.”  Ever thought about the possibility we might be giving leftovers instead of our first work?  Another song comes to my mind, and you hear me mention it often; “I wonder if I've done my best for Jesus, when He has done so much for me.”

Reasonable Service.
