Matthew 8:15 “He touched her hand, and the fever left her, and she rose and began to serve him.”
What a perfect response to being touched by Jesus. If Jesus has touched you, serve Him. She didn’t wait until it was the right time. She didn’t ask if it was the right thing to do. She didn’t try to clean up her life first. She rose and began to serve Jesus.
Jesus has touched my life. He has healed me from my disease of sin. He has cleansed me from my unrighteousness. So I serve Him. He is my Lord. I am His servant. No excuses. No compromise. No hesitation. Has Jesus touched your life? Get up and serve Him. Have you been healed today? Get up and serve Him. Do you have breath in your body? Get up and serve Him.
It doesn’t matter if you are tired. It doesn’t matter if you don’t know what to do. It doesn’t matter that you never went to college. It doesn’t matter if your life is a mess. Get up and serve Him. Serve Him in your family. Serve Him at work. Serve Him when you don’t feel like it. Serve Him with all you have. I love the words to the Casting Crowns song, One More Song For You, “As long as there’s breath in me, Lord, there will always be one more song for You.”
If Jesus has touched your life then get up and serve Him today. No more putting it off. Today’s the day.
