Why Serve God?

May 29, 2019

The God who made the world and all that is in it, the Lord of heaven and earth, does not dwell in sanctuaries made by human hands, nor is he served by human hands because he needs anything. (Acts 17:22 – 18:1)

So God does not need us to serve Him?

God does not want us to serve Him because He needs it. He wants us to serve Him because we need it. By serving Him we fulfill our purpose on this earth. By serving Him we grow in faith and understanding. By serving Him we empty ourselves and become more like Him.

Jesus taught us that we best serve God by serving others.

God does indeed want us to serve Him, but for our own benefit and that of our fellow men – not because He needs it.
