Getting Ready to Serve God
When you are preparing yourself to serve God you should be in constant prayer and of the things happening around you. Don’t allow yourself to get into a position that God never intended for you. It’s important that you have an ear to hear even when you do not the purpose that God has for you because this is your time for preparation.
We must be faithful in little things: God supplies each us with different assignments and no matter how uncomfortable they maybe to use we still have to trust and have faith that he will with us every step of the way. Know that you want always understand what he asks of you can’t be afraid because the work still needs to be completed. If you are not doing your very best then that means you are not being faithful.
We must be faithful in church attendance: After giving your life over to God you must be baptized because it is your way of saying you’re completely belong to him. Once you have made this change in your life it is important that you surround yourself with other believers to keep you spiritually lifted and help you to grow.
We must be faithful in spending time alone with God: Because it helps your form and builds your personal relationship with God. We can more easily find out what God wants for our lives. Spending alone time with God helps us to refocus and get our minds off the worries of the world. The most important reason to spend time alone with God is that we become more naturally like him as we begin to love him more.
