Oh to serve HIM only!!!
To serve Jesus - and love Him with all your heart, soul, mind and strength. Wow! Meditate on that for a moment.
Can you just feel that wave of love and emotion washing over you as you set your heart in tune with the Father's heart?
The Father's heart - to " defend the cause of the fatherless and the widow" (Deuteronomy 10:18), " A Father to the fatherless, a defender of widows is God in His Holy dwelling"(Psalm 68:5). This was the heart of Stephen in the book of Acts (chapters 6 to 7). Stephen, a man full of the Holy Spirit, full of God's grace and power who did great wonders and miraculous signs among the people, did not lose sight of the most humble and most important position of a servant. Stephen served food to the widows and orphans, displaying the heart of God to a needy people.
May we all adopt this attitude, a heart of love and service for Jesus and not chase the 'power' of God, but His heart for the lost.
A great harvest is due and will spring forth from humble and grateful hearts as this.
Let's praise Him, give thanks and serve Him with all our hearts. Have a blessed week!! In His name.
