What do you think of when you hear the word "service"? There are three main words in the New Testament that are translated service. 1) a servant or slave who serves another; 2) official service (also in a religious use) this is where we get the word "liturgy"; 3) service in the church either with the word like pastors, or deacons who serve in other ways as well. Paul reminds us in Eph. 6 that when we serve we are remember that we are serving the Lord. The Lord serves us in many different ways, and as a result there are many different ways that we serve our Lord and our neighbor. There is always something that we can do to serve using the gifts He has given us.
