How Can I Serve in God’s Kingdom?

Author: Samuel Miano — Host: Andrew StevensPosted on: February 10, 2020

How can I serve in God’s kingdom? Often, we as teenagers shy away from this question. We say things like, “Well, I’m too young” or “I’m just not strong enough.” But do these excuses hold up? After all, David was young when God used him to kill Goliath. Gideon was the least in his family, but God used him to defeat the Midianites. Esther was a young woman when she went before the king to save her people. Jeremiah was young when God called him to be a prophet to the people of Judah. I could go on and on about how God used normal people—like you and me—in extraordinary ways in His kingdom. You don’t even have to do anything big for God to serve in His kingdom. Try serving in a Sunday school class, sharing the gospel with a friend, or helping set up the church before the service starts. You might think these small tasks are minuscule and unimportant to God, but they’re not. God delights even in the little things you do for Him and uses them in His kingdom. So, the next time someone asks you, “What can you do to serve in God’s kingdom?” and you feel too young or too weak for the task, remember this: “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me” (Philippians 4:13). • Samuel Miano • In the past, how has God used you or someone you know in His kingdom? • What are some ideas you have for how you might want to serve in God’s kingdom? • Pray about the ideas you listed, asking God to show you how He would like to use you in His kingdom. I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me. Philippians 4:13 (NKJV)
