If Everyone Will Be Saved Anyway, Why Serve Christ?

Everything is permissible but not everything is beneficial. Everything is permissible, but not everything is constructive. (I Corinthians 10:23)

Why do you serve Christ?

Some recent friends reminded me how difficult many Christians find this question. It always seems to catch Christians off guard. Many even admit to not knowing the answer.

Why do you serve Christ?

Someone, "To get to heaven."

Me, "I serve Him because He is the Way, the Truth, and the Life."

Someone, "Because He told us to."

Me, "Hmmm. Must my groom really DEMAND that I make love with Him? His words but caress my spirit, leaving me longing only for more. My Lover, come to bed with me so that everyday my love for you might grow. Lover, where have you gone? Your bride awaits."

Someone, "If I serve Him, He will give me eternal life."

Me, "TODAY he gives me life, and I trust tomorrow He will also. I can not move my hand without His presence. I can not eat without the taste of His honey, His meat, His manna upon my lips. I am refreshed by His wine, His water, His milk. I can not listen without His words falling upon my ears. Life? HE is my life. And my soul, flesh, and spirit overfloweth with love."

If you want you can return to a life of sin, for everything is permissible, but I have found that the wages of sin is death. For I was once a lost son, and took part in the world. But there was no manna, honey, meat, wine, water, or milk. Nor was there any joy. But I did find plenty of loneliness, pain, starvation, and misery. But lo and behold, PRAISE THE LORD! When I returned home I found that my father had prepared a feast for me! And in His arms I find constant love and companionship! I shall not leave again!

Grace merely allows us to live a life of sin, but IT DOES NOT MAKE SIN BENEFICIAL!

So please, we are all free to return to our perversion and desires of the flesh, but as for ME AND MY HOUSEHOLD WE SHALL SERVE THE LORD! And I have many brothers and sisters! I will but live and die for Christ. Who is with me? I can already hear your trumpets blowing!

I Corinthians 6:12 Everything is permissible for me, but not everything is beneficial. Everything is permissible for me, BUT I WILL NOT BE MASTERED BY ANYTHING!

In His joy, love, peace, patience, goodness, mercy, discipline, strength, grace, compassion, comfort, healing, and much more!
