Time to Serve

Every Sunday, join me here as I leave the words to those who have come before me – inspired writers from the Bible as well as others who followed in their footsteps. I pray the portions of Scripture, commentaries, and songs you find here will bless you as they have me.

Time to Serve | The Engrafted Word

“One good deed is more worth than a thousand brilliant theories. Let us not wait for large opportunities, or for a different kind of work, but do just the things we ‘find to do ‘ day by day. We have no other time in which to live. The past is gone; the future has not arrived; we never shall have any time but time present.

Do not wait until your experience has ripened into maturity before you attempt to serve God. Endeavor now to bring forth fruit. Serve God now, but be careful as to the way in which you perform what you find to do – ‘do it with thy might.’ Do it promptly; do not fritter away your life in thinking of what you intend to do tomorrow as if that could recompense for the idleness of today. No man ever served God by doing things tomorrow.

Whatever you do for Christ throw your whole soul into it. Do not give Christ a little slurred labor, done as a matter of course now and then; but when you do serve Him, do it with your heart, and soul, and strength.

But where is the might of a Christian? It is not in himself, for he is perfect weakness. His might lieth in the Lord of Hosts. Then let us seek His help; let us proceed with prayer and faith, and when we have done what our ‘hand findeth to do,’ let us wait upon the Lord for His blessing. What we do thus will be well done, and will not fail in its effect.”

( from Charles Spurgeon’s Morning & Evening )
