Good Morning Lord What Can I Do For You Today

Matthew 20:26-27
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

26 It is not this way among you, but whoever wishes to become great among you shall be your servant, 27 and whoever wishes to be first among you shall be your slave;

Being a Christian will turn your life upside down. Competition is so, American! Itís not only sports. We will compete for jobs, promotions, corner offices, best yard in the neighborhood, and affections from the opposite sex. Iíve even seen people try to out spit each other and others race cockroaches. Itís even been said, ďHe who dies with the most toys, wins.Ē

I sometimes think winning is imbedded into our DNA. Yet, when we look at what Jesus says, itís not how we should be with each other. Also, we canít take our toys with us when we die. To quote Mac Davis, ďOh Lord itís hard to be humble.Ē Iíd say for many of us, itís almost impossible.

Fortunately for us there really IS wonder working power in the precious blood of the Lamb! We really canít be Christians without Christ. We need to change. The Holy Spirit led me to this:

Colossians 3:23
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

23 Whatever you do, do your work heartily, as for the Lord rather than for men

Donít compete for that job. Work your job as you are working for God. Work with all your being and the promotion will come to you. Donít win that ballgame for the trophy. Play that game as you are playing for God and that trophy will come to you. In everything you do, do it
for God. It brings home this verse:

Matthew 6:33
New American Standard Bible (NASB)

33 But seek first His kingdom and His righteousness, and all these things will be added to you.

Every day you wake, tell God, ďGood Morning, Lord! What can I do for You today?Ē Live your life completely for Him and He will bless you for it. Be a servant and you will be great in His Kingdom.
