Why is serving God important?
Here's the answer:
Serving God is important because it brings glory to God.
When we serve God, we bring Him glory. We also serve others when we serve God. God created us to glorify and praise Him. When we are serving Him, we are doing what God created us to do.
When we serve God, the light of Jesus shines out of us. This means people will see Jesus in our actions. How amazing is that?! Our lives can be a testimony of Jesus. When we serve God, more people will be able to see Jesus’ love for them.
Since we are Christians, we should want to serve God. Jesus died to save us and give us eternal life. It is not asking too much for us to serve Him for the rest of our lives. Serving God is fun and awesome! You can start serving Him today!
"God’s gifts of grace come in many forms. Each of you has received a gift in order to serve others. You should use it faithfully. If anyone speaks, they should do it as one speaking God’s words. If anyone serves, they should do it with the strength God provides. Then in all things God will be praised through Jesus Christ. Glory and power belong to him for ever and ever. Amen" (1 Peter 4:10-11).
"In the same way, let your light shine so others can see it. Then they will see the good things you do. And they will bring glory to your Father who is in heaven" (Matthew 5:16).
"Brothers and sisters, God has shown you his mercy. So I am asking you to offer up your bodies to him while you are still alive. Your bodies are a holy sacrifice that is pleasing to God. When you offer your bodies to God, you are worshiping him in the right way" (Romans 12:1).
