Serve Him in the place where you are, Praise His Holy Name!

We can wonder what does God want us to do? How can we serve Him? Sing Praise to the Lord Jesus Christ, and proclaim the Good News! And, tell the world that He alone is the Holy One, He alone is Lord, Most High and the Creator of all things seen and unseen ~ COl 1:16.

You can serve God in the place where you are? Jesus's public ministry began with teaching in the synagogues of Galilee and was praised by all. And, He came to Nazareth, where He had been brought up; and as was His custom, He entered the synagogue on the Sabbath and stood reading from the book of Isaiah. "The Spirit of the Lord is upon Me, Because He anointed Me to preach the Gospel to the poor. He has sent Me to proclaim release to the captives, and recovery of sight to the blind, to set free those who are oppressed, to proclaim the favorable year of the Lord." Luke 4:14-19.

Jesus came to proclaim the Good News (the Word of God) to mankind! Why? Because of the condition of mankind. And, what was/is mankind's condition? Mankind's condition then and now is being: poor, captive, blind and oppressed! Poor in spirit - lacking the Word 'Light of the World' and the Blessings in it that are only of the Kingdom of God, being captive in sin, being blind to his/her own condition, and oppressed by the powers of evil. 

Who can deliver us, who can do/did the Work that needed and needs to be done in this case, in and for this fallen world? Jesus Christ! His Work at the cross is now our work but a joyous one indeed for we are free indeed in Jesus Christ ~ John 8:36. What works are we to do/ be known for ~ Praising the Lord Jesus Christ for all His Good Works that He alone did for mankind- human beings! "Praise the LORD, my soul; all my inmost being, praise his holy name" ~ Psalm 103:1.

Serve Him in the place where you are, Praise His Holy Name!
