God's Words For US

Serve One Another In Love
Date Posted: June 18, 2021

You, my brothers, were called to be free. But do not use your freedom to indulge the sinful nature, rather serve one another in love. Galatians 5:13 (NIV)

Paul writes to the Galatians that we are to serve one another in love. He warns them, and us, that our freedom should not be used in a questionable or sinful way.

How can we keep from causing hurt to others when we serve them? We should ask the LORD to guide us in our actions and our speech as well as our attitudes.

Sometimes we must engage what some call filters in our speech. (Gauge how something might sound if we spoke certain things.)

Other times, we must just do our jobs and choose not to listen to things that cause us to slip up and fall into the ‘world mode’. This takes some maturity in Christ.

We must remember that God loves those we serve and those who serve with us as much as He loves us.
