In God’s Service

Indian Administrative Service (IAS) officers are proud of their appointment, opportunity to serve the nation. All IAS officers would not become Chief Secretary to the State Government or Principal Secretary to Prime Minister. However, each officer is considered as an asset for the government. All officers have their appropriate level of service, based on their expertise, experience, and needs. All believers, both men, and women are In God’s Service (IGS) irrespective of their age, experience, education, and context.
Pray: All believers are expected to pray, and intercede for harvesters to be sent for harvest. “The harvest is plentiful, but the laborers are few. Therefore, pray earnestly to the Lord of the harvest to send out laborers into his harvest.” (Luke 10:2) Prayer for new harvesters and toiling harvesters on the field.
Witness: All born-again people of God are His witnesses in the world. (Acts 1:8) Their words, deeds, behavior, attitude, relationships, and lifestyle should reflect God’s attributes of love, wisdom, grace, and goodness. In other words, they are the light of the world and the salt of the earth. (Matthew 5: 14-16)
Make disciples: Disciples are called to be disciple-making disciples. (Matthew 28:18-20) God’s desire is for all humans to repent and receive Him. (II Peter 3:9) Disciples from all tribes, people groups, languages, and nations will be in heaven worshiping the Lord. (Revelation 7:9) Making disciples should be the desire, the passion, the priority, and the life purpose.
Teach to obey: It is not enough just to make disciples but teach them to obey. Disciples ought to be obedient disciples. Teaching, training, and equipping them to excel in discipleship is the task of all believers. It begins at home, with children, and spreads to the neighborhood communities, and the whole nation.
Do Good: The ministry of Lord Jesus Christ on earth was doing good. (Acts 10:38) Disciples are also equipped to do all kinds of good work. (II Timothy 3: 15-17) Those who are people of faith, do good work to alleviate the suffering of people and bring reforms in society. (James 2:26)
