Thank you man of God, this means a lot as this is something some of us battle with on a daily basis.
What a revelation, insight and impartation! I’m really amazed.One sometimes feels stretched and subsequently begins to ask if God really hears. We eventually count the number of times we have been going to church, praying and fasting and assisting the poor.
“Will any one of you, who has a servant plowing or keeping sheep, say to him when he has come in from the field, `Come at once and sit down at table’? 8 Will he not rather say to him, `Prepare supper for me, and gird yourself and serve me, till I eat and drink; and afterward you shall eat and drink’? Does he thank the servant because he did what was commanded? So you also, when you have done all that is commanded you, say, `We are unworthy servants; we have only done what was our duty.'” Luke 17:7-10
Indeed this scripture verifies the words in your article. This is so powerful as we often think we can bribe God by giving to the poor, by our offerings and loving our neighbours.
According to this chapter in the book of Luke, what we do for the Lord is what is expected of us.Our deeds do not necessarily move God as they are supposed to be a life style.
