Whose Land Is It?

“The LORD appeared to Abraham…he hurried…to meet them and bowed low to the ground…Let me get you something…Then he ran to the herd and selected a choice, tender calf…While they ate, he stood near them under a tree.” Gen. 18:1-8

When Abraham recognized his visitors as the LORD and His messengers, he was tripping over himself to serve them. It is written that no time elapsed before this recognition was met with service. Not only did Abraham immediately bring them water for their dusty feet, and food for their hungry stomachs but he did it all in reverence. He rushed to them and bowed immediately upon recognition. He did not leave them once they were served but stood close by in case they needed something.

So many times we demand to be served by God instead of the other way around. We expect Him to ‘stand under the tree’ and be active in our lives when we need something. We walk through our days focusing on ourselves and own needs instead of standing under the tree of the Kingdom preparing for service. Once Christ becomes a central focus in our lives we too should hurry towards Him in deep reverence and service. We must set our sight on the work in His kingdom, and always watch for His initiation of the needs of His people.

As we stand under His tree waiting for His initiation, we become recognized as His disciples… learning, teaching and serving. We will become the fruit of the tree for which we live by. “A good tree cannot bear bad fruit, and a bad tree cannot bear good fruit…Thus, by their fruit you will recognize them” Matthew 7:17-18.

Are you actively watching and serving God in His land or are you waiting on God to serve you in your land?
