Start Walking In Love And Serving Other People

Joyce Meyer (17)

I saw a woman in a restaurant yesterday and she told me this story;  she said:  God had asked me to make a meal for somebody who was battling cancer and take it to them, and she said, first of all, I don’t like to cook and secondly, I was really busy and I didn’t really want to do that so I murmured and grumbled but I knew God wanted me to do it and then I repented because I murmured and grumbled and I took the meal.  She said: while I was there, I met a woman who works for your media-buying agency in Tulsa and she said: oh, well, if you’re going to go to the Joyce Meyer meeting, I can get you front row seats. (whoo!) (applause) you never know what that foot washing may get you. (laughing) you have to understand that God can bless you anywhere. (yes!) Some of you are so intent on finding somebody to marry. Well, you know what?

If you’re serving god, you could take out your trash and meet somebody. Come on! (applause) come on, I want the church to get happy, I want you to enjoy your life and I want you to enjoy yourself! (cheering) can you even imagine what would happen in the world if every person who calls themselves a Christian would really start walking in love and serving other people? (applause) wow!  I mean, there would be a light shining from the church that would dispel the darkness. People would be drawn in. We can’t be like the world. We are in the world but we are not of the world. We cannot act like the world.

We have to go the extra mile and do things our flesh doesn’t want to do because we know God is asking us to do them. Little things.  Simple things. Don’t let the devil tell you: that doesn’t matter. That’s not important. He had died and been resurrected from the dead so now he’s going to appear to his disciples as the resurrected king of kings. It’s one thing to wash feet before you’ve experienced a resurrection but now he comes as the resurrected lord of glory. There’s a whole thing here in John 21.  I’m not going to read you the whole thing but it says he appeared to them and they had been fishing and morning was breaking. Verse 4:  morning was already breaking when Jesus came to the beach and stood there. However, the disciples didn’t know it was him. (v. 5) so Jesus said to them, boys, did you catch any meat? Have you caught any fish? They said, no! (v. 6) and he said, cast your net on the right side of the boat and you’ll find some. There’s a whole message in that. Sometimes we’re doing life our way and we don’t catch anything.
