THE SERVITUDE OF GOD'S LOVE



There is no greater inspiration for men to serve one another than Almighty God serving us.

From THE JESUS YOU NEED TO KNOW, "God is bigger and greater than we can ever imagine, and yet He serves us - individually. It is important to keep in mind that the Son of God is the same Jesus who walked the earth and washed the disciples' feet. The same God, who has need of nothing, is the one who was mistreated all the days of His earthly ministry when He revealed Himself as the Messiah of Israel and the Savior of the world. Jesus served mankind in creation, and He will continue to serve by sustaining it forever." Page 19, chapter 2, Jesus, the servant God, the Servitude of God's Love.


The all-important point in the servitude of Jesus Christ is that He need never serve. The fact that God is eternal, omnipotent (all powerful), omniscient (all knowing), and omnipresent (everywhere present) means He needs nothing. Therefore, God had no need to create anything. Paul stated the undeniable truth describing the assurance of God's love when he wrote,


"He who did not spare His own Son, but delivered Him over for us all, how will He not also with Him freely give us all things? Who will bring a charge against God’s elect? God is the one who justifies; who is the one who condemns? Christ Jesus is He who died, yes, rather who was raised, who is at the right hand of God, who also intercedes for us. Who will separate us from the love of Christ? Will tribulation, or distress, or persecution, or famine, or nakedness, or peril, or sword?" (Romans 8:32-35)


He answered his own question with a divine answer, as His words were inspired by God. "But in all these things we overwhelmingly conquer through Him who loved us. For I am convinced that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor things present, nor things to come, nor powers, nor height, nor depth, nor any other created thing, will be able to separate us from the love of God, which is in Christ Jesus our Lord." (Romans 8:37-39)


If God did not need to create anything and He could have remained in perfect contentment within the triune Godhead, then why did He created anything? As stated in my upcoming Podcast, there are concepts in this life, which upon consideration ultimately can only lead us to worship as a complete answer is beyond or grasp.

In my book, I consider some enormous ideas to guide my readers to worship at the feet of Jesus.


Consider the benevolence of Jesus Christ, who serves forever those He created, whom God the Father gave to His beloved Son as a bride and gift of love. Be thankful, full of appreciation for the great love with which He loved those whom He chose to redeem, forgive, and welcome into His divine family.
