Do it wholeheartedly

Whatever we do, we must do with all our heart. Just as the Bible says how a servant must serve his/her master, we must serve the Lord wholeheartedly. In the Bible we see the example of David who served the Lord in all that he did. David played the lyre skilfully that he was called to serve the king of Israel. Whenever he played, Saul’s spirit would calm down. David had great success, because the Lord was with him (1 Samuel 18:14). David was mindful of the Lord in everything he did and that is how he defeated Goliath. He served the Lord in all that he did. He also consulted the Lord in everything he did. That is why he was the man after God’s heart (Acts 13:22).  

Once I met a minister of God from abroad, who asked me, “Why are you always in prayer?” I replied that I am preparing for the sermon. He laughed and gave me his Bible to see. I saw many sermon notes stuck in between the pages. He said, “When I go to the stage, I would say “Lord” and open the Bible; whatever sermon points are there, I would preach on that. My dear ones, the scripture says, “Cursed be he that doeth the work of the Lord deceitfully” (Jeremiah 48:10). So whatever we do, we need to wait at the Lord’s feet, do with all our heart to bring glory to God (1 Corinthians 10:31; Col 3:24).
“For the love of Christ compels us” (2 Corinthians 5:14) with the experience of Apostle Paul as said above, we must serve the Lord with all our heart. Even if you pray for just a minute, that prayer should come from the depth of your heart. Then no matter how large the crowd may be, you will pray with tears for them and the Lord will answer your prayer for the people. The service which we do with all our heart and with fear of God is truly the service of a son to his father. Whatever we preach, pray or fast, whatever we do, we must do with all our heart. The Lord will honour you definitely when you serve Him with true love and fear of God (John 12:26).
My Master,

I come to You seeking Your grace to be driven by Your love in everything I do. Let me always be mindful of Your Presence and please You by being diligent in all my work. I want to serve you honestly and with true love and reverence. Help me to love You with all my heart and not be slack or do anything deceitfully. Amen.
