Serve!

Today’s Verse:

And said, My Lord, if now I have found favour in thy sight, pass not away, I pray thee, from thy servant: ~Genesis 18:3

In tennis, players yell out, “Serve” to indicate that the one who has the tennis ball is about to hit it toward his opponent. I have always thought that was an awkward word to announce that the ball is being "served” to the opponent, but on the other hand, it represents a powerful image of the fervor in which we should serve our Lord.


Our service should be swift.

Abraham responded to the Lord by running to meet Him, hastening into the tent to Sarah, and running to the herd. David said, “The king’s business required haste.” Serving the Lord implies diligence and immediate action. We should not be slothful, drag our feet, or procrastinate. Paul said, “Fervent in spirit; serving the Lord.”
