Just because you serve, doesn’t mean you’re saved.

Matthew 7:21-23 Not everyone who calls out to me, ‘Lord! Lord!’ will enter the Kingdom of Heaven. Only those who actually do the will of my Father in heaven will enter. On judgment day many will say to me, ‘Lord! Lord! We prophesied in your name and cast out demons in your name and performed many miracles in your name. But I will reply, ‘I never knew you. Get away from me, you who break God’s laws.’

There is more to the church than serving. And until you realize serving is an addition, not your foundation, you are headed down a road paved by a false sense of security.

I know plenty of people willing to serve the church, but who aren’t willing to seek God. Such people are not serving Christ our Lord; they are serving their own personal interests. By smooth talk and glowing words they deceive innocent people.

God is looking for more than servants. He is looking for seekers. People who go to extreme lengths to seek his face. And although serving is an incredible catalyst in learning the importance of being a bond-servant, it is not meant to be your only avenue for divine wisdom. It’s meant to be an addition.

Don’t let the false security of servanthood get in the way of your relationship with God. Heart work is just as important as hard word.

Matthew 6:33 – Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
