What We Have To Serve God
What must we have to serve God is a good question. It isn’t unanswerable. There are positive answers at fingertip’s reach where each of us are concerned.
The first thing we must have if we are going to love and serve God is to do it with all our heart. What’s wrong with this world is that people are half-hearted. They are half-hearted in family life, hence there are many divorces. They are half-hearted in their religion; hence, Jesus will cast them out for He said, “With your lips you honor me, but your heart is far from me.”
If you are going to serve God and love Him, you must do it with all your heart. Then you must do it with all your soul. That is breath and body, and He says that you must serve and love Wim with all your mind. “Let this mind be in you, which was also in Christ Jesus” is one passage. Another passage says, “Thou wilt keep him in perfect peace whose mind is stayed on Thee, for he trusteth in Thee.” And “Whatsoever things are pure, think on these things.”
What you see is what you are going to think about. Your mind is a depository and when you put something in it, it stays there and the power of the Holy Spirit, if it is a good thing, it will bring it back to your remembrance.
