In Deuteronomy 10:12, the straightforward desire of God’s heart for all humanity is revealed:
“What does the Lord your God ask of you but to fear the Lord your God, to walk in obedience to him, to love him, to serve the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul.”
Reverence. Obedience. Love. Service. These are the basics of the Christian faith, and a blatant request from God. It is not a formula or checklist but rather an organic part of our lives as we follow Jesus.
Our name, ServLife, hints at this. Serving both impacts others’ lives and is a way of life. It is practicing our faith while also forming our hearts. Serving is an expression of love, an act of obedience and a response of worship due to God’s incredible holiness and love. It is a way of life. It is the way of Jesus.
Thank you for serving globally through your prayers, support and finances. Through your partnership with ServLife, you are serving orphans, families and entire villages in India and Nepal. Your sacrifice, support and service is making a difference in the lives of churches, children and families in India and Nepal, and the love of Jesus is spreading. Thank you.
Lord, form us into a people of reverence for you, obedience, love and service. Help us to serve others as a way of life and not a temporary project. Teach us to walk in the way of Jesus. Amen.
