ARE WE OBEYING HIM
“And Samuel said, Hath the LORD as great delight in burnt offerings and sacrifices, as in obeying the voice of the LORD? Behold, to obey is better than sacrifice, and to hearken than the fat of rams.”
1 Samuel 15:22 KJV
There are people who will give a lot of money to charities and other good causes but these same people aren’t serving Jesus. God is not impressed with the money we give because it all belongs to Him anyway. The thing that makes our Heavenly Father happy is for us to serve His Son.
We read in the Bible. “Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, Whom shall I send, and who will go for us? Then said I, Here am I; send me” (Isaiah 6:8). If we haven’t answered the call of Jesus to go for Him, we are hurting Him and breaking His heart. If you aren’t serving Him, are you willing to serve Him?

Jesus, the Saviour of the world, left His Father, His home and all that He had to come to earth and die on the cross for our sins so we can be saved and go to Heaven. Will you answer His call to serve Him?
Jesus was beaten beyond recognition, spat on, cursed, mocked, rejected and tortured. He endured more ridicule, agony and excruciating pain than anyone has ever endured or ever will. What a Saviour! What a Friend, this Jesus of
! All hail King Jesus! Worthy is the Lamb of God! Praise Him with me. Nazareth
