Why Serve God?

Why Serve God? by Keith Cook

"Do you not say there are yet four months and then comes harvest? Behold I say to you, Lift Up Your Eyes, and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest." John 4:35

NEWS EVENT: On The Go Staff will be ministering in San Pedro Island, Belize - July 14-25, 2018. We will be hosting several outreaches including a Men's and Women Conference, Festival of Hope, and local Churches. We Covet Your Prayers!

There are several reasons people serve God.

1. For Fame - They want to make a name for themselves. They want to help the poor "heathen people."

2. For Fun - They think that mission trips, ministry, and service to others take them to exciting places. They want to have fun and meet other people.

3. For Adventure or Fantasy - They want to have a great experience with the culture or blaze a trail that no one has ever been on.

4. For Family - Their parents or spouse want them to minister and they agree to do ministry to save face or go along with the family on a project.

5. For Escape - They have nothing better to do and it will get them away from school or job for a while.

6. For Peers - Everyone else is going and they do not want to be left out.

7. For God - They are called by God and want to make a difference for Christ. They have lifted their eyes and looked on the fields that are ready for harvest.

Which one of the above represents you?

We serve God because...

He died for us.
He asked us to go for Him.
He loves the lost and so do we.
He will be with us as we go.
He will use us if we are "on the go" for Him!

Why serve God? Because He served us!

After taking thousands of people all over the world and all over the United States to do ministry I have experienced all of the above reasons why people want to go for God. When I find someone who really wants to go for God and they give all they have for Him I usually have made a co-worker for life.

Is God calling you to Go for Him?

Are you willing to listen and do what He says?

Daily Prayer Focus: Pray that God will purify every wrong motivation that you may have for serving Him.

On The Go Prayer Focus: On The Go's GoKids Clubs. The focus of GoKids Clubs is to present a clear Gospel message to young children in our festivals, missions, and local neighborhoods. Pray for On The Go as we minister to boys and girls and share with them the love of Jesus Christ.

Thank you for taking the time to pray for this important division of On The Go Ministries. For more information on any our ministries here at On The Go, you may send your questions to info@onthego.org.
