Serving God (2 of 49)
David's Spiritual Secret
1 Samuel 16
Everything seems so fragile these days. News gets old in seconds, emails in hours, movies in days, electronic gadgets in weeks, cars in months, and buildings in years. Nothing seems enduring in our world.
We live more and more in a world that is temporary. From the delete button on the email screen to the trash can on our digital cameras—everything seems to be short lived. All around us we see decay, even on the cosmic level everything is headed towards what physicists call ‘heat death'.
WHAT LASTS FOREVER?

Revelation 22:3 And there shall be no more curse, but the throne of God and of the Lamb shall be in it, and His servants shall serve Him. NKJV
Revelation 22:6, 9 Then he said to me, "These words are faithful and true." And the Lord God of the holy prophets sent His angel to show His servants the things which must shortly take place. 9 Then he said to me, "See that you do not do that. For I am your fellow servant, and of your brethren the prophets, and of those who keep the words of this book. Worship God." NKJV
So we need to get a grip on who are God's servants and how do they serve? All that lasts are God and those who serve Him; that is what God's Word is all about. If we are to someday spend eternity serving God, how are we doing at our current serving?
