Thank you for your service today. It has been most appreciated. Many of us go through life performing what seems to be thankless tasks, or if we perform a job well done nobody seems to notice. Well, your service has been recognized today and we ask that God may give you a special blessing for it.
The ability to work and serve others is a blessing and is truly a gift from God. God has given you the ability and opportunity to serve the needs of others and in so doing, bless them. Again, a special thanks to you.
In appreciation for your service I would like to share with you Someone else who served others. His name is Jesus Christ. When Jesus left the glories of heaven to come and dwell with mankind, it says He “made Himself of no reputation, and took upon Him the form of a servant, and was made in the likeness of men.” (Philippians 2:7) A servant is one who serves or offers help and assistance to another. Jesus came to offer His assistance to us in the area of sin. You see we all have a sin problem, “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.” (Romans 3:23) And when you sin against the infinitely holy God, it is no small matter. It is not just a speck of dirt that can be swept under the rug. There is no such thing as a “small” sin with God. Notice that God doesn’t make a distinction between sins when He says, “Whosoever hath sinned against Me, him will I blot out of my book. And whosoever was not found written in the book of life was cast into the lake of fire.” (Exodus 32:33, Revelation 20:15) Now God does not want to send you to this place. But “the LORD is our judge, the LORD is our lawgiver” (Isaiah 33:22), so in order for Him to remain a just judge, He has to judge those who have broken His law “for sin is the transgression of the law.” (1 John 3:4) It should be evident to you that you are in a desperate situation here. You have a grave problem - literally a grave problem. Everyone will have to face the grave on account of their sin for “the wages of sin is death” (Romans 6:23) Then after you die you will be resurrected from the grave to face God at the judgment, “as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment.” (Hebrews 9:27)
I hope you realize that you are in need of a helping hand. What are you going to do about your sin problem? You can’t forgive yourself. God has to forgive you. What are you going to do on judgment day? You can’t pardon yourself because it’s God’s law you have broken so only He can pardon you. But He can’t pardon you because you are guilty of breaking His commandments, i.e. His law. It looks like you are going to need two hands to help you out here, but not from another sinful human being. You must look to….
Jesus “came not to be ministered unto, but to minister, and to give His life a ransom for many.” (Matthew 20:28) Here are your helping hands - nail pierced hands that is. When Jesus was nailed to the cross he paid the wages for your sins and exchanged His life for yours. All people are held in bondage to sin and Satan, bound by chains that cannot be loosed but by Jesus Christ who came to set the captives free. Jesus “was in all points tempted like as we are, yet without sin.” (Hebrews 4:15) Therefore, He was worthy to “bare our sins in His own body”, (1 Peter 2:24) and pay the ransom for sinners. He bought your way out of hell’s prison through His death on the cross and resurrection from the grave. He suffered God’s judgment for you. When Jesus spread His hands on the cross and the Roman soldiers hammered the nails into His hands and feet, He served humanity in a way nobody else could. As a result, “Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. In whom we have redemption through His blood, the forgiveness of sins.” (Acts 4:12, Ephesians 1:7) The glorious Son of God, who came down from heaven and was made in the likeness of man, took upon Himself the role of a lowly servant for the sake of a lost and fallen world. Today, it is up to you whether or not you will let His nail scarred hands wash you of your sins. Jesus told the apostle Peter, “If I wash thee not, thou hast no part with Me.” (John 13:8) And if you have no part with Jesus, you have no part with Him in heaven. Yet if you will confess your sins and make a decision to turn from them and turn to Christ for salvation, then God will forgive you and wash them from your soul. “If we confess our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us our sins, and to cleanse us from all unrighteousness.” (1 John 1:9) Call on Jesus Christ and put your trust in Him as your Lord and Savior. “He that covereth his sins shall not prosper: but whoso confesseth and forsaketh them shall have mercy. For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Proverbs 28:13, Romans 10:13) However, if you have no desire to turn from your sins, then you truly have no desire for Jesus Christ.
Heaven, forgiveness, mercy, and pardon from judgment can be yours...but only through the Heavenly Servant. We pray that you receive His assistance today, for “Our help is in the name of the Lord.” (Psalm 124:8)
