We serve whom?
... He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again. (II Corinthians 5:15)
Evidence of a changed heart is a changed motivation for life. Those who truly have been born again are spoiled for anything and everything that is less than a 100% commitment to doing the will of the resurrected Lord Jesus Christ; no cost spared.
A Christian does not serve other causes, nor does he serve other men. A Christian serves the Lord Jesus Christ, and seeks to do all things in obedience to His commandments.
Oh Lord! Is that my motivation, or have I compromised in any way! Lord, please show me my heart and ensure that I live only for the glory of Your Name and the extension of Your Kingdom, in time and on earth.
