Thoughts From A Recent Sermon...

Joy in Serving
 
Bro Josh Thilmony, 09/18/2016 
 
Philippians 2.7 But [Jesus] made himself of no reputation, and took upon him the form of a servant. 
 
Joy in serving is like the joy of harvest. You sow seeds, and later you reap. Recently while my wife was out of town for a few days my boys and I did dishes and laundry.  When she returned, she was happy about the work that was done. Her happiness made me happy. I wasn't so happy when we were doing housework, but I was happy later when she was happy. 
 
Our service is directed toward Christ. Paul says in verse 20-21 that he had no one like Timothy, for all sought their own instead of the things that were Christ's. Timothy was different. He sought the things of Christ. Epaphroditus also, in verse 30 was nigh unto death for the work of Christ. These men served Jesus. They found the joy in serving.
 
The way we serve Christ is to minister to the souls of men. Paul says in verse 16: Holding forth the word of life, that I may rejoice...  If the Philippians took it upon themselves to minister to spiritual needs around them, Paul rejoiced. Sadly, some churches focus more on physical needs than spiritual ones. We do minister to physical needs in poor countries, and we support the local city mission, but our main focus is to offer the word of God to minister to the soul of man.
 
How should we serve?  In love and mercy. Verse 1 of this chapter says in comfort of love, in bowels and mercies, and in consolation in Christ. By love we serve one another. Charles Spurgeon mocked some other ministers of his day, saying that they always ministered vinegar when they preached.  May the Lord help us to serve with a smile and a song. There was a family once that invited my wife and I to visit in their home. The entire visit the man of the home acted like it was a bother for us to be there.  My wife asked me on the way home, "I wonder why he invited us if he wasn't in the mood to visit tonight?"
