Every Good Service Rendered to Humanity is Indeed a Service to God
All my entire younger years i have often believed that for someone to truly get that innate sensation of serving God, one must be a worker in the Church. No one ever told me that i must not be a worker in the Church to be rendering service to God, no one ever told me that whatever good i do to the least of the people i see everyday of my life is indeed a service to God, no one told me that making the life of others around me better is indeed a service to God, no one told me that the essence of living is not entirely to amass wealth for myself and perhaps the people i am closely related with,but to try and help people with their predicaments in whatever ways i can. Yet Durcas was acknowledged as a true servant of God, why because she did some extra ordinary things! Nope because she went out of her ways to do ordinary things that we often say are inconsequential sewing clothes for her neighbors, helping them out with their problems, treating them with kindness and it was very evident when she passed on that the people spoke well of her service to them.
Its saddening this days that the Church has become an institution of men trying to establish the culture of men within the church that does nothing but create a sense of insecurity among the people forcing them to believe that they must belong to a “Local Church” and be known by their leaders to get any kind of service from the church. This is indeed the evil of culture that has kept people in bondage. When you ask any one going to church a simple question as “Where do you worship” you will be surprised at the kind of response you get from them. Some disdain other church and some leaders have instituted young men and women to try and get more members for the church either seductively or politely.Churches are in competition among themselves as regard to memberships.
The beauty of churches this day is no longer on its capacity to bring about message of hope and healing to those who are hopeless but more on showcasing its capacity to erect edifies all around town that people see and marvel at and that suit certain class of individuals who ordinarily can not worship in certain places because it does not meet their social standard.
In the end the true essence of church can not be eroded, people will find solace in small groups where everyone is as important as the person besides them. — if you are a programmer like myself, your duty is to write qualitative programs that solves human problems. in that you find satisfaction and a service indeed it is to God. — If you are teacher, teach students to be better persons and they will always remember you with good wishes. In that you find satisfaction and a service indeed it is to God. — If you are a doctor, take care of the sick people who entrust their life in your hand, for you are like God to them; they believe every word you say to them. In that you find satisfaction and a service indeed it is to God. — If you are a leader guide the people you lead in truth and honesty for they will look up to you for direction, protection and solace. In that you find satisfaction and a service indeed it is to God. I may not be able to mention every services but in whatever service you find doing and if what you are doing bring some sort of succor to mankind. Do it with all you strength for that is your service to man and to God.
