#BGIM on Christmas Day.
Hurray. It’s Christmas!!! The Saviour is born. He is Christ, the Lord. The reason for the season.
Merry Christmas to all #BGIM patrons and readers. God Bless You All.
This week’s #BGIM (Bless God It’s Monday) is centred on what the Saviour came to do as well.
“For even the Son of Man came not to be served but TO SERVE, and give His life as a ransom for many” (Mark 10:45 ESV)
Most of us tend to akin service or serving to slaves, servants, subordinates and lowly people. But today #BGIM beseechs us all to serve in whatever capacity we find ourselves for service has always proven to be an approved route to greatness.
Look around you. Look for all the great people around you and go and check their background. You will see that they were and are still people of service. Serving society with one solution or the other. Some for free, some for a reduced cost or the full cost. The most important thing is that people like Kwame Despite (Despite Group Ltd) and Joseph Siaw Agyapong of Zoomlion served society with one solution or the other for which they have now burst forth into greatness.
Those who serve: be it serving food and drinks at an event; serving on various committees at their workplaces, church, mosque, associations; serving in various capacities as leaders of little or large groups, secretaries, organisers and even WhatsApp Group Administrators are surely churning out their skills. They are developing and harnessing those skills unconsciously. And just as they hone those skills, they are preparing themselves for that great door/ opportunity that would pop up when others least expected. And that’s when they will shine through to their life of greatness.
And just as my favourite preacher, Lady Rev. Adelaide Heward-Mills says those who serve will always get privileges that those who do not serve might never get, might have to pay to get or even have to struggle to get. She always says that those who serve drinking water to ministers at their church are the ones who are assured of coming into close contact with preachers like Benny Hinn and T. D. Jakes when they come to Ghana. And the most blessed of all things is when the preachers call out all of these serving kind after close of church to pray for them, impart them and bless them.
