I am not a strict constructionalist, believing that we seal our eternal progress by what we do here. It is my belief that God will save all of His children that he can: and while, if we live unrighteously here, we shall not go to the other side in the same status, so to speak, as those who lived righteously; nevertheless, the unrighteous will have their chance, and in the eons of the eternities that are to follow, they, too, may climb to the destinies to which they who are righteous and serve God, have climbed to those eternities that are to come. J. Reuben Clark

We want to stay on the straight and narrow path and serve God, yet we continue a practice that often pulls us in the wrong direction. Joshua Harris

Sometimes we need a personal crisis to reinforce in our minds what we really value and cherish.

But these dear boys and girls–there is, something to be made out of them. If now they yield themselves to Christ they may have a long, happy, and holy day before them in which they may serve God with all then hearts. Who knows what glory God may have of them? Heathen lands may call them blessed. Whole nations may be enlightened by them. O brethren and sisters, let us estimate children at their true valuation, and we shall not keep them back, but we shall be eager to lead them to Jesus at once. Charles Spurgeon

The visionary who is serving God ceases to live for personal ambitions, but rather for God’s ambitions. George Barna

Lukewarm people will serve God and others, but there are limits to how far they will go or how much time, money, and energy they are willing to give. Francis Chan

It is within my power either to serve God or not to serve Him. Serving Him, I add to my own good and the good of the whole world. Not serving Him, I forfeit my own good and deprive the world of that good, which was in my power to create. Leo Tolstoy

Top Serving God Quotes

Serving God doesn’t mean we’ll no longer have difficulties. We’re still on the battlefield, but we don’t have to fight alone. Joyce Meyer

Ultimately you are doing what you do for one of two reasons: to serve oneself or to serve God. There is enough time in every day to do God’s work…in God’s way. Theodore Wilhelm Engstrom

What is it to serve God and to do His will? Nothing else than to show mercy to our neighbor. For it is our own neighbor who needs our service; God in heaven needs it not. Martin Luther

The highest act of love is the giving of the best gift, and, if necessary, at the greatest cost, to the least deserving. That’s what God did. At the loss of His Son’s life to the totally undeserving, God gave the best gift – the display of the glory of Christ who is the image of God. John Piper

Martyrdom does not consist only in dying for one’s faith. Martyrdom also consists in serving God with love and purity of heart every day of one’s life St. Jerome

It is only serving God that is doing immortal work; it is only living for Christ that is living at all. Charles Spurgeon

Humility does not disturb or disquiet or agitate, however great it may be; it comes with peace, delight, and calm. . . . The pain of genuine humility doesn’t agitate or afflict the soul; rather, this humility expands it and enables it to serve God more. Teresa of Avila

It is serving God and others persistently with full heart and soul that turns testimony of truth into unbreakable spiritual strength. Henry B. Eyring

Since God is the one who calls people to their work, the worker becomes a steward who serves God. Leland Ryken

We need to remember the purpose of our service to one another. If it were only to accomplish some part of His work, God could dispatch ‘legions of angels.’ . . . But that would not achieve the purpose of the service He has prescribed. We serve God and our fellowmen in order to become the kind of children who can return to live with our heavenly parents. Dallin H. Oaks

In Benedictine spirituality, work is what we do to continue what God wanted done….God goes on creating through us. Consequently a life spent serving God must be a life spent giving to others what we have been given. Joan D. Chittister

I did nothing to deserve God’s love; in fact, I was living as an orphan, without hope. Yet God chose to pursue a relationship with me, and through the death of his son Jesus, I was adopted into God’s family. Steven Curtis Chapman

If we wish to serve God and love our neighbor well, we must manifest our joy in the service we render to Him and them. Let us open wide our hearts. It is joy which invites us. Press forward and fear nothing. Katharine Drexel

True leadership is serving God and not looking for the glory that might come from it. You don’t do it for the glory or personal benefit but for God’s glory. You don’t take credit for anything that is done, but praise God for everything that He has done through you. Vonette Bright

We don’t serve God to gain His acceptance; we are accepted so we serve God. We don’t follow Him in order to be loved; we are loved so we follow Him. Neil T Anderson

God takes that which is nothing and makes something out of it. When you become a Christian, you cannot patch your Christianity onto your old life. You are to start over. Accept God’s call as a promotion. Burn the old bridges and fix it so you cannot go back ; then serve God with all your heart. Aiden Wilson Tozer

True religion is when you serve God to get nothing else but more of God. Many people use religion as a way of getting something else from God they want-blessings, rewards, even escape from judgement. This is wearisome to us, and to God. But when God is His own reward, Christianity becomes thrilling. Sacrifice becomes joy. J. D. Greear

Selfishness is when we pursue gain at the expense of others. But God doesn’t have a limited number of treasures to distribute. When you store up treasures for yourself in heaven, it doesn’t reduce the treasures available to others. In fact, it is by serving God and others that we store up heavenly treasures. Everyone gains; no one loses. Randy Alcorn

Thank God we don’t serve God with our feelings, otherwise I don’t know where I would be. – Pray for me. Mother Teresa

I’m only here on Earth to serve God. I never had a career. I don’t care about commercialism. I have a ministry and I’ll fight for the ministry. Larry Norman

We cannot have any preconceived ideas of what service means. We never know from one moment to the next, what will be asked of us. Reshad Feild

It is futile for us to try to serve God without the power of the Holy Spirit. Talent, training, and experience cannot take the place of the power of the Spirit. Warren W. Wiersbe

Thats what I love about serving God. In His eyes, there are no little people…because there are no big people. We are all on the same playing field Joni Eareckson Tada

We are foolish to expect to serve God without opposition: the more zealous we are, the more sure are we to be assailed… Glory be to God, we know the end of the war. The great dragon shall be cast out and for ever destroyed, while Jesus and they who are with him shall receive the crown. Let us sharpen our swords to-night, and pray the Holy Spirit to nerve our arms for the conflict. Never battle so important, never crown so glorious. Every man to his post, ye warriors of the cross, and may the Lord tread Satan under your feet shortly! Charles Spurgeon

So many times we say that we can’t serve God because we aren’t whatever is needed. We’re not talented enough or smart enough or whatever. But if you are in covenant with Jesus Christ, He is responsible for covering your weaknesses, for being your strength. He will give you His abilities for your disabilities! Kay Arthur

God gets me into a relationship with Himself whereby I understand His call, then I do things out of sheer love for Him on my own account. To serve God is the deliberate love-gift of a nature that has heard the call of God. Oswald Chambers

Serve God with integrity, and if you achieve no success, at least no sin will lie upon your conscience. Charles Spurgeon

It is by serving God and others that we store up heavenly treasures. Everyone gains; no one loses. Randy Alcorn

Serving God is doing good to man, but praying is thought an easier service and therefore more generally chosen. Benjamin Franklin

Every man naturally desires knowledge; but what good is knowledge without fear of God? Indeed a humble rustic who serves God is better than a proud intellectual who neglects his soul to study the course of the stars. Thomas a Kempis

An ounce of cheerfulness is worth a pound of sadness to serve God with. Thomas Fuller

Christianity is hard when we try to serve God in man’s way instead of serving God in God’s way. Aiden Wilson Tozer

The institution of marriage works better when there’s a spiritual connection. If you’re marrying just for the sake of the woman, then you may lose interest in each other very soon. When we marry in the interest of the Holy Spirit with the intention of serving God and humanity, then it gives a much larger perspective. A. R. Rahman

The soul of one who serves God always swims in joy, always keeps holiday, is always in her palace of jubilation, ever singing with fresh ardor and fresh pleasure a new song of joy and love. John of the Cross

Whenever you serve others in any way, you are actually serving God. Rick Warren

…we are quick to rationalize our entertainment and priorities yet are slow to commit to serving God. Francis Chan

The Hebrews have a saying that God is more delighted in adverbs than in nouns; it is not so much the matter that is done, but the matter how it is done, that God minds. Not how much, but how well! It is the well-doing that meets with a well-done. Let us therefore serve God, not nominally or verbally, but adverbially. Ralph Venning

We serve God by serving our fellow man; kids are suffering from malnutrition. People are going to the fields hungry. If you are a Christian, we are tired of being mistreated. Fannie Lou Hamer
