The scripture for today, December 26, is John 12:26 as found in the New Testament of the Bible:
“Whoever serves me must follow me; and where I am, my servant also will be. My Father will honor the one who serves me.”
Who or what are you a servant to or even slaves to? Power in a workplace, club, congregation, neighborhood? Prestige in a community, an occupation, an organization? Self-indulgence of money, music, entertainment?
While you are pursuing things in life, is Jesus there with you? Are you doing what he would do? Dare to be a servant only to the power of Jesus’ love, prestige only in the eyes of God, self-indulgence only in the joy of worshiping Him. In this only is there true and enduring honor.
