Bible Reading: Matthew 23:1-39
But all their works they do for to be seen of men…. Matt 23:5
To whom do you give your service, to God or to man? There are eye service men and women in every congregation. They work not unto the glory of God, but unto man. They are among the workers, they are on the altar. Like the Scribes and the Pharisees, they want to be noticed anywhere they are; they want to be appreciated for everything they do in the house of God. Who is your God? Deceit is iniquity before the Lord. Falsehood is an instrument of destruction. If you are one of those who work in the house of God for people to see and appreciate you, for pastor to see and commend you, you are not a true child of God, the spirit and love of God is not in you. A true child of God is happy doing the work of the Father without any expectation from man. He is not in service because of the pastor or his leader, but because he loves Jesus Christ. His mind is not unto man but unto God, he expects no reward from man but looks unto God. His focus is unto eternity. He is willing to do anything to please his God.
Prayer Point: Heavenly Father, give me the grace to
serve you faithfully in Jesus name.
