God doesn’t need our service.
He doesn’t “need” us to do His will.
He isn’t crippled by our lack of obedience,
Neither is He empowered by our willingness to obey Him.
He alone holds all power,
Regardless of what we do or don’t do.
We can not change who He is.
But He can change who WE are.
That is why He calls us to follow Him.
It is because He loves us.
We need Him.
That is why He calls us to obey Him.
That is why He calls us to serve Him.
We need Him.
We serve Him because we love Him.
We love Him because He first loved us.
Out of hearts that are overwhelmed by His sacrifice and empowered by His Spirit,
We offer our lives to Him.
Make no mistake. God does not “need” us. He WANTS us.
We NEED Him.
The question is:
Do we WANT Him?
“I beseech you therefore, brethren, by the mercies of God, that you present your bodies a living sacrifice, holy, acceptable to God, which is your reasonable service.” Romans 12:1
“I have no need of a bull from your stall or of goats from your pens, for every animal of the forest is mine, and the cattle on a thousand hills. I know every bird in the mountains, and the creatures of the field are mine. If I were hungry I would not tell you, for the world is mine, and all that is in it.” Psalm 50:10-12
