SMARTLY SERVE, SERVE GOD

 

 

By 1940 the Nazis were swiftly conquering Europe.  Churchill was elected as England’s new Prime Minister (which means Main Servant!).  In his first speech to the House of Commons he said, “I have nothing to offer you but blood, toil, tears and sweat.”  In other words, he was offering Britain a chance to keep serving its country “with all the strength that God can give us” no matter what the cost.  The people needed to serve sacrificially and smartly.

Sunday I’m preaching on “Smartly Serve, Serve God” from Luke 16:1-13, which has got to be Jesus’ strangest parable.  It’s about an unjust steward who was commended for his cleverness.  I believe that after Jesus commented on his cleverness he commented on his immorality.  We should be clever yet not  immoral.  Depending on Jesus doesn’t mean we should quit thinking!  Rather it means we should let Jesus think through us.  He’ll use our brains, background and passions, but he’ll use them morally, unlike the steward of the parable.

As we move towards fall may we continue to serve God, our church, our families and our nation.  We should serve smartly for the glory of God.

Love,
Jim Meek
