The Spiritual Fruit of Service

In one of the most powerful passages in the New Testament, Jesus informs that as we do acts of kindness, to the least of those around us, then we have in fact done those deeds to God. this is so contrary to the most popularized concept of success . According to the definition of Jesus, it may then not be the well-known accomplishments of our life, that best earn a place in the kingdom of heaven.

service to the least of these poor unfortunate

Rather, it is likely to be the deeds of service, sacrifice and love ministered to people the world does not pay attention to that will gain our nearness and dearness to the heart of God. So then, it is likely that it will not be what the world sees:  but private acts of selflessness and love that are only seen by God and perhaps 1 other refreshed and comforted soul that will truly show our passion for Jesus.

Serve and bless others even in times of trial

In perhaps the most profound and personal act of reverent devotion mentioned in the scripture; Jesus feet are washed by the hair and tears of one of his followers. Such intimate devotion may not be witnessed by the world but it definitely ministers to the heart of God.

In the short sight, selfless acts of devotion that do not get observed by the world may seem not to profit us. But if the tape can be run all the way into the eternal, then the fruit of delight in the union with God’s heart is a reward beyond compare.

Heaven in our soul
