Service to the Lord

have you waited in the presence of God? 

I assume that as believers in we are definitely devoted to service the Lord Jesus Christ, and I make an appeal…to all here as to whether that is so.  I do not presume to define what the service is.  Probably that is a matter that lies between the Lord Jesus and your own souls; but that every one that belongs to Him is devoted to service, and that for ever, must go without saying; for the immensity of what Christ has done lays us under eternal obligation.  Our lives, our abilities, all that we possess, must be at His feet for service…

I ask you, in regard to your service, have you waited in the presence of God?  Have you a sense that He has taken you up?  There are two dangers: one is to serve unintelligently, and the other is to not serve at all.  There should be a sense in our hearts that God has definitely taken us up for service.  It was so with Christ…there abode in His heart the secret that He was God’s Servant.
