Motivation for Service

in New Life Service/Servanthood

What motivates you to serve God? Here's today's Bible Minute.

Now, rewards ought to be an important motivation for us. 1 Corinthians 9:24 says, "Do you not know that in a race, all runners compete, but only one receives the prize? So, run, so that you may attain it." That's rewards. That's motivation.

1 Peter 1:17, "And if you call on Him as Father, who judges impartially according to one's deeds, conduct yourselves with fear throughout the time of your exile." God will judge us impartially but He will judge us according to our deeds. Rewards are designed by God to motivate us to service.
