PLEASE READ THIS FIRST: 1 Chronicles 24-27
What do you sense the Lord saying to you in this passage?
“Here is the list of the men who performed this service…” (1 Chronicles 25:1)
If you are like me, you tend to skip the lists of names in the bible.
Why would lists of names be inspired by God, how are they helpful or inspiring?
And yet a list becomes important if you think your name might be on there.
I’ve scoured articles or lists intensely when I thought my name might be there.
“Rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” (Luke 10:20)
My name is not on this specific list, but it is written on God’s list.
I am listed with those assigned to the task of serving the Lord.
I was commissioned when I accepted the promise of Jesus’s baptism.
To be a Jesus follower is to be called to serve with, like and for Jesus.
It is not enough to just be on the list, am I actively doing something for Jesus?
According to this list in Chronicles, every person had unique gifts and roles.
What are my gifts, and how am I using them in the service of Jesus?
If you are a Jesus follower, your name is on the list too.
How or where are you actively using your gifts to serve the Lord?
Lord, thank you for assigning me a place in your service, and for assuring me my labour is not in vain!
