John 6:38-40 I came down from heaven to do what God wants, not what I want. I must not lose anyone God has given me. But I must raise them up on the last day. This is what the one who sent me wants me to do. Everyone who sees the Son and believes in him has eternal life. I will raise them up on the last day. This is what my Father wants.

Whom Does Jesus Serve?

If only God would do what we want Him to do. If only Jesus would just stump up and fix this one problem, deliver this one blessing!! Have you ever found yourself thinking that way?

Honestly, I spent much of my early faith walk believing that I was oh-so-special; that God would wave His magic wand to make all my problems disappear; that He’d shower me with untold riches and blessings.

Why? Because that’s just what we’ve been taught to expect in this world. You won’t be surprised to learn that things didn’t quite turn out like that!

And okay, that was me back in my spiritual immaturity … fair enough. But let’s not write it off, because we all still have that tendency to revert back to a selfish faith. After all, He came to this world for us, didn’t He?

Yes, He did – but on his terms, not on ours:

John 6:38-40 I came down from heaven to do what God wants, not what I want. I must not lose anyone God has given me. But I must raise them up on the last day. This is what the one who sent me wants me to do. Everyone who sees the Son and believes in him has eternal life. I will raise them up on the last day. This is what my Father wants.

The lie that we so want to believe is that Jesus came to serve us on our terms. But that’s not true. He came to do His Father’s will – to save us, to give us eternal life. That can be a painful process, but its outcome is so much better than spoiling us with the trinkets of this world. 

That’s God’s Word. Fresh … for you … today.
