Your Daily Dose of Boldness – Living a Transformed Life Part 2: Service and Love

Living a Transformed Life Part 2: Service and Love

Service: When many people hear the word “service,” there is either an internal or audible moan, “What do I have to do now?”

When Paul transitioned from doctrine to practice, he expressed the idea that all our God-Given Gifts are meant to serve the church and Christ’s mission. But this is where some people get hung up. They think “calling” means, “I have to be a pastor, a missionary, or serve in some ‘proper’ fashion in the church.” Unfortunately, serving God is too often understood as a “one-size-fits-all” endeavor, and most believers do not feel as if they fit the bill.

Living the transformed life simply means participating in the disciple-making process. This does not mean door-knocking or ditch-digging. God empowers you to serve in the place for which you were designed to serve (doesn’t that make you feel better? It does me). But how do you know that you’re where you need to be and doing what needs to be done? Because as you’re utilizing your gifts, you’re aiding in others’ transformations.

Love: The word “love” is overused. I use the same word to describe my feelings for my wife as I do for a new pair of boots. I say, “I love my kids and I love fried chicken” in the same sentence. We use the same word to refer to our love for people and God as we do for sports teams and pizza, and therefore, it loses its meaning altogether.

True God-like love is essentially the choice to value the need of another over oneself. You know when you’re doing it right because it will feel a little uncomfortable. This manner of living is counter-intuitive to our very nature and extremely counter-intuitive to the way the world works.

Love is one trait that Christ clearly said would distinguish our lives and set us apart from the rest of the world.

Serving and loving are instrumental to living a transformed life.
