Preachers and pastors are sometimes viewed as rather unusual people. After all, they will speak about answering God's "call" to full-time ministry for the church. As a result, some people think preachers have a special internet-like connection with God! But they aren't the only ones called to Christian service.
Paul encouraged Christians to strengthen one another in their faith and to help people understand the implications of their beliefs. He applied the truth of submitting "to one another out of reverence for Christ" (Ephesians 5:21) to their church life and their personal lives.
Paul reminds husbands, wives, parents, children, employers, and employees, that in all our relationships we must gauge whether we're serving the Lord God is the ultimate rewarder for work done. It's not our salaries or the praises of people. We're to look forward to a welcome home from God, who greets us with the words, "Well done, good and faithful servant!"
Christ is the Master we serve by serving others. Every member of every church should be serving in some way, and every servant of the Lord should remember that it's more than just serving others; it's loving them: "Serve one another humbly in love" (Galatians 5:13).
