Service is a vital aspect of our walk with God. Service makes our walk with God meaningful and fruitful. Without service, your walk with God is fake. Your glorious future is secured through quality service to God. Service is your ladder to higher heights in life. We are primarily saved to serve God. The soul searching question now is, “should we serve God with a sense of mediocrity or touch of excellence?” God deserves excellent service from His people because He is an excellent God. God’s name alone is excellent.
Isaiah 28:29 (KJV) This also cometh forth from the LORD of hosts, which is wonderful in counsel, and excellent in working.
Since God is excellent in His workings, you have to reciprocate by serving Him with excellence. This means using the best of your divine endowments, skills, talents and resources for the promotion of God’s Kingdom. It is rendering to God quality oriented service. It is striving for the top or best quality in every work you do for the advancement and promotion of God’s Kingdom here on earth. It is doing your very best in anything you do for the promotion of God’s Kingdom. God believes in excellence. The streets of heaven are paved with gold. He commanded that the Ark be built and finished with pure gold representing glory and excellence. (Exodus 37:1-29)
Why do you use high quality materials in your house and then want the inferior quality things for the kingdom of God? Why do you render excellent service to your boss in the office, which is good though and feel that service to God should be done casually and anyhow? God is the MOST HIGH; He deserves the best from anyone forever.
If your service is cleaning the house of God, seek the best and attractive way to render that service. If you are ushering, usher with a lovely style and skill that will make the person feel at home. If you are decorating God’s house or altar, go for the best and the most modern quality of material and style. Seek to be current always and not outdated in what you do for the promotion of God’s Kingdom. You must strive for excellence at all times in your service delivery in the Kingdom of God.
There are requirements for Excellence in Service and one of it is “Excellence” Mindset. Excellence or quality is a mindset and not determined by size or budget. Developing a quality improvement mindset is very important and essential for everyone who has decided to serve God with excellence.
Another way is to give attention to Details. One major key to excellent service whether in Church or in other corporate systems is paying attention to details. You must pay attention to details if you want to be excellent in your work. You need to be meticulous, detailed, thorough, careful and painstaking. Mind the little things. Minor things if not checked can create major problems that will adversely affect the quality of your service.
Be Innovative: To serve with excellence, you need to seek for new and best ways to do that assignment. You must be creative. Go for new ideas that will depict quality when that service is rendered. Research for new ideas to improve your service. Search the internet for current information relevant to your assignment in the Kingdom of God.
Have a Passion for Excellent Service: Passion for excellent service is the driving force in the heart of any person who truly wants to serve God with his or her best. You may have the mindset for excellence but if there is no burning desire (passion), excellence cannot be pursued.
Focus: Matthew 6:22 (KJV) The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light.
If you put your whole heart into what you are doing, better ideas and insight will come that will enhance the quality of your service. Divided attention will always result in mediocre quality of service.
When you serve God excellently, He is pleased and He will reward you accordingly.
Ephesians 6:7-8 (KJV) With good will doing service, as to the Lord, and not to men: Knowing that whatsoever good thing any man doeth, the same shall he receive of the Lord, whether he be bond or free.
Make a decision today to render quality service to God. Pay any price; make any sacrifice until you make excellence happen in your service to God! God will in turn distinguish you in life in Jesus name- Amen!
God bless you
