THE STORY OF JESUS: Luke 12:35-41
“He will dress himself to serve… and will come and wait on them.” (Luke 12:37)
Can you imagine this scene: Jesus serving you for your faithful service?
Jesus wearing an apron, and holding a serving tray, with whatever I ask for?
Jesus wants us to know how much God values our service to Him.
Especially when the wait is long, and the work is hard.
Jesus has left us with a mission, to bring His grace into the world.
To share His blessing, to bring His peace, to demonstrate His mercy.
This is what He is expecting of us, while He is absent.
His love for humanity and creation is so strong, He wants us to share it.
And He will be extremely happy to find us sharing His passion.
Jesus says these things to inspire His disciples to live and love like Him.
Do I share His passion for the least and the lost?
Am I working hard for Him, like a faithful servant entrusted with a task?
My goal is not to be waited on by Jesus, but to see His pleasure.
To see His smile and hear Him say: ‘thank you for loving those I loved!’
What do you sense the Lord saying to you?
Lord, may I share Your passion for the least and the lost, and bless others with the same generous love as You. May my service of others bring joy both to their hearts and to Yours.
