What are some practical ways to serve God?

Somehow I ended up reading in 2 Chronicles 29 and 30 today. It was talking about a willing and right heart to serve the Lord. In chapter 30 verse 8 it says, “...but yield yourselves to the Lord and come to his sanctuary, which he has consecrated forever, and serve the Lord your God, that his fierce anger may turn away from you.” 

This verse is both humbling and exciting! 

I also referenced Psalm 36, and 1 Corinthians 7:17, which I memorized. “Only let each person lead the life that the Lord has assigned to him, and to which God has called him.”

After reading these passages today, I see again that there is absolutely no room for arrogance. I need to be reverent and humble in God’s presence because God has assigned me a life to live. He has a plan and that plan is to serve him. If I serve him, his fierce anger will turn away from me. How exciting is that!?

What are some practical ways that I can serve God?

  1. I'm reminded of the speck and beam parable-focusing on someone else's life while mine goes unattended. True arrogance. To "lead the life the Lord has assigned" me is challenging and time consuming enough; I need not lead another's.
