Luke 14:1-6

SERVING WITH LOVE ON THE SABBATH

“Then he asked them, “If one of you has a son or an ox that falls into a well on the Sabbath day, will you not immediately pull him out?” Luke 14:5, NIV.

Jerry Bridges said, “Only when we’re thoroughly convinced that the Christian life is entirely of grace, are we able to serve God out of a grateful and loving heart”. The lawyers and Pharisees in today’s passage lacked this loving heart. Though they claimed to love God, by upholding the Sabbath, they lacked the compassion that comes with the love of God. To them, it does not matter what pain that man was going through, once their legalistic rules were upheld. Jesus revealed their hypocrisy by asking them that if their son or ox fell into a pit on the Sabbath, wont they pull it out? Jesus cannot be indifferent to human suffering; He healed the man with dropsy, and proved that love is what fulfils the law. By this act, Jesus opened the way to loving grace which was to replace the era of legalism that put unnecessary burden on people.
We cannot afford to be apathetic towards the needs around us. We are Jesus’ hands today to set people free from the burden of sin and shame which traps those who are yet to experience His grace. Serving God could be seen as an obligation, but the best service – the one that pleases God – is one borne out of the love of God, extended to those who are in need.

RBT Passage: Deuteronomy 26-27

“The only way you can serve God is by serving other people”. – Rick Warren.
