Don't serve God carelessly - From our Father's Heart (02/07/2017)

Dearly Beloved,

Jeremiah 48 vs 10 says “ Cursed be he that doeth the work of the Lord deceitfully, and cursed be he that keepeth back his sword from blood.”

God is a God of excellence and order. He does not accept just anything. Serving God has principles, precepts and standard. So, don’t serve Him anyhow. One of the first truths stated in the Bible is the standard of service that God accepts. God hates to be served anyhow. That was what separated Cain from Abel. God accepted Abel’s offering and rejected Cain’s because of the standard and attitude with which they came to God.

You need to know that any service not up to divine standards generates the wrath of God. God loves us but He will never accept wrong and mediocre service from any man. God always wants the best.

It is better not to serve God than to serve Him anyhow. God wants us to serve Him but not at our own standard. Not at your own time but His, not at your own convenience but at His demands. Bring excellence and honour into your service. Any service that you are bringing to God either spiritual or physical must come with honour.

The Lord told me years ago “ My son I am a serious God, if you take me serious, I will take you serious”. Your service must come to God at the highest level of seriousness.

God does not accept careless attitude in service. The two sons of Aaron understood that in a very costly way. They brought strange fire into His presence and He smote them. God is a God of details and specifics. He gives details and specifics of how He wants men to serve Him. Don’t serve God carelessly.

Deut. 10 vs 12 says “ And now Israel, what doth the LORD thy God require of thee, but to fear the LORD thy God, to walk in all his ways, and to love him, and to serve the LORD thy God with all thy heart and with all thy soul.” God wants men to serve him with all their heart and soul. Don’t join the group of people that serve God as if they are doing Him a favour. Serve Him with all your possession and every capacity that He has given you.
