But be sure to fear the Lord and faithfully serve him. Think of all the wonderful things he has done for you. But if you continue to sin, you and your king will be swept away.1 Samuel 12:24-25
A Faithful Servant
At the end of your life, what do you want to be said of you? Samuel’s charge told the people to be sure to continue to fear the Lord and faithfully serve Him. What does it mean to fear the Lord? It doesn’t necessarily mean to be afraid of Him, but to understand who He is and His power. Know Him as Creator and Lord of the world, but also know that He is in control. What does it mean to faithfully serve the Lord? Wake up everyday wanting to serve Him and Him only. Faithfully seek Him and no one else. Love Him first and people next. Show people your love for them through your love for the Lord.
At the end of your life, may it be said that you knew the power of the Lord and allowed Him to be in control, and that you served Him faithfully every single day of your life.
A Prayer to Remember
Thank you Lord for my relationship with you. I know that you are always in control of my life. May I be obedient to your Word and allow you to work. May I faithfully serve you in word and deed and show the world that I am a Christian! Amen.
