Today's Devotion: October 31
 

Saved to Serve
 

For you, brethren, have been called to liberty; only do not use liberty as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another.

Galatians 5:13

 

   

Recommended Reading

Mark 10:41-45

 

 

Children think that the absence of rules means the absence of restraint—and not just physical children; spiritual children often think that too. Paul dedicated part of his letter to the Galatians, teaching that “liberty”—freedom from the law—is not a license for the unbridled appetites of the flesh. Rather, the energy formerly spent obeying the law is now to be redirected to serving others.


Jesus told His disciples that He did not come into the world to be served but to serve and to give His life for others (Mark 10:45). Indeed, He said that greatness is determined by the humility of service. Two of Isaiah’s most powerful images are that of the nation of Israel as a servant to the Gentiles (Isaiah 49:3), then of the Messiah as the Suffering Servant for both Jews and Gentiles alike (Isaiah 53:11). If Christ came to honor God by serving the will of God, we who go by His name must do the same.


Look for an opportunity today to serve someone in your life. Serve them as Christ would serve—sacrificially and unconditionally.



Use your freedom to serve one another in love; that’s how freedom grows.

In their attempt to set up a caliphate state, the radical Islamist group ISIS leaves a devastating trail of chaos and pain as they move across Iraq and surrounding nations -- destroying towns and families -- and killing those who reject conversion to their form of Islam. Tensions continue to rise between Russia and the Ukraine as the battle for Ukrainian sovereignty rages on.
