A Heart to Serve



Every born again believer
Is given a tender heart,
Equipped to serve God and others,
Useful from the very start.
Yet often we walk in the flesh,
Selfishly going our way,
And the inner glow is hidden…
As we live for self each day.

A Christian is known by his fruit,
And it should be evident:
God’s love, joy, peace, and righteousness
Should shine forth so prevalent.
And when we let our Light so shine…
Others shall see and shall know
The Spirit of the Living God…
Lifts to a higher plateau.

Jesus becomes our everything
When we’re redeemed and made whole;
He gives the heart a song to sing
And stills the troubled soul.
If we’ll stay close to our first love,
And fully trust and obey,
We’ll have A Heart to Serve others…
As we live for Him each day.


 “For, brethren, ye have been called into liberty;
only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh,
but by love serve one another.”
(Gal 5:13)
