The end is another beginning! – Ruth 4:

The end is another beginning! – Ruth 4: 13-22
Part Two: the end is a new beginning of service!
And we know that in all things God works for good of those who love him, who have been called according to his purpose. For those God foreknew he also predestined to be conformed to the likeness of his Son. Romans 8:28-29
It is God’s primary goal for your life to reproduce the image of His Son in you. But what does that look like? Jesus gives the answer:
The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.
Mark 10:45
It is very appropriate that Obed’s name means ‘Servant’.
Something very basic to our faith seems to be diminishing in the body of Christ. With the arrival of Christian satellite and the mega church it would appear that many arrive on Sunday mornings with the attitude of seeking to be served and given to rather than that of Christ Jesus, of serving and giving. “Please me” “Entertain me” “Make me feel good or else” has replaced servanthood.
Let us all open our hands again and serve like Jesus.
