There is a health rule called “The Daily Dozen.” This rule states that if you want to lead a healthy lifestyle, then you need to eat and/or do the 12 items on the list.
For the Christian lifestyle, there are other disciplines that we know are essential for leading a healthy, Christian life. Reading your Bible and spending time with the Lord daily, sharing the Gospel, and using the gifts and talents God gave you to serve Him and others.
When you serve, you are helping yourself just as much as you are helping other people. There is no greater joy than living in obedience to God. He calls some people to be full-time missionaries, and He calls others to work in an office in downtown Memphis. Either way, God is giving you opportunities to serve every day.
If God has called you to serve here at Bellevue, then the best thing you can and should do is follow that command. Whether it’s greeting, teaching a Life Group, serving in the nursery, or helping with Senior Adult Valet, you will grow in maturity and joy as a believer by faithfully serving where God has called you to serve.
Serving not only helps those around us, but it also helps us become more like Jesus.
“Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Mathew 20:28
