In 1 Peter, Peter tells us, “Above all, keep loving one another earnestly.” Above all. This is the most important thing. Love earnestly. Strongly. Deeply. Intensely. How well do you love those around you? How do you love best? How do you like to receive love?
We are urged to love but also show hospitality to one another. A huge blessing of being together is that we are able to serve one another. Have you ever been to a restaurant and had a terrible experience because of the server that was waiting on you? Those who follow Jesus serve people really well.
Jesus was the best example. He left his throne in Heaven to come to earth to serve everyone. The woman at the well. His disciples. The dead. The unclean. The blind. His mom. The world. Jesus’ entire purpose was to serve the world by dying on a cross, to reconcile the relationship between God and us. Truly, a servant leader.
Who are you serving today?
What are a few things you can do this week to serve like Jesus?
Jesus, I want to be more like you. I want to serve as you served. I want to love people as you have loved me. In Jesus’ name, amen.
