A Contract That Binds Us To Serve Without Excuse

Our Lord and saviour Christ Jesus has a contract with all believers that binds us to serve Him without excuse. For the love of Christ compels us, because we judge thus: that if One died for all, then all died; 15 and He died for all, that those who live should live no longer for themselves, but for Him who died for them and rose again” (2 Cor. 5:14-15). Paul said, “I have been crucified with Christ; it is no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me; and the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave Himself for me “(Gal. 2:20). He was talking about dying to the things of this world and going hard after Christ in all-out commitment and abandonment of self. That’s why Paul could also say, his goal was that20 Christ will be magnified in my body, whether by life or by death. 21 For to me, to live is Christ, and to die is gain “(Phil. 1:20-21).

All believers have been offered the role of serving and living for Christ but some, if not many have opted instead to live for something else. And there are others who have lukewarm attitudes to serving Christ’s interest because of distractions from other ventures. Christ is against His followers serving two masters. It’s a total commitment, not a split role, you can’t combine the roles. “No one can serve two masters; for either he will hate the one and love the other, or else he will be loyal to the one and despise the other. You cannot serve God and mammon” (Mat 6:24).

Christ needs our full commitment. Set the will of God and His work as your top priority. As far as Christ is concerned, you don’t have any plans of your own. The only thing that ultimately matters to all followers of Christ is their relationship to their master. Let’s serve God faithfully, Jesus’ commendation to His follower who pleases Him is, “Well done, good and faithful servant”. Are you serving Christ faithfully? When you are faithful servant of Christ, no task is too small or beneath your dignity. Let’s finish what we start, keep our promises, and fulfil our ministries. May the Lord help us to do exactly that.
