"Who Serves Who?"
Most people walk around with an upside down attitude. They assume that their life is the most important thing and that this world, other people and even God are there to enhance their life. Thus when their life is threatened or their body become sick they hit the panic button. This is why the medical industry makes so much money. People will pay any price to save their skin!
But the word of God says that as Christians our life is here to serve Christ! My life and body are his. As the Apostle Paul said, our goal is to glorify Christ in our bodies. And we have no desire to cling to this world other than to serve him. This attitude of taking up our cross and serving him actually pays off! For we will live with him and enjoy him forever!
