Great occasions for serving God come seldom, but little ones surround us daily.— Saint Francis de Sales
Profound Christian Service quotations
If you aim for only wealth, beauty, fame, & power, you aim too low.

We have a great deal of activity, but we accomplish little; many services but few conversions; much machinery but few results.
The Christian should never worry about tomorrow or give sparingly because of a possible future need. Only the present moment is ours to serve the Lord, and tomorrow may never come...Life is worth as much as it is spent for the Lord's service.
Here am I, send me; send me to the ends of the earth; send me to the rough, the savage lost of the wilderness; send me from all that is called comfort on earth; send me even to death itself, if it be but in your service, and to promote your kingdom

Worship is an act that develops feelings for God, not a feeling for God that is expressed in an act of worship.
The Sunday morning service shows how popular your church is.
The evening services show how popular your pastor is. Your private prayer time shows you how popular God is!
Never take yourself too seriously.

But I cannot help but think that if Christ ran a public establishment, it would be open to all, and He would be the last to refuse service to anyone. It is, simply put, the most un-Christian of notions.
Becoming a Christian is the work of a moment; being a Christian is the work of a lifetime.
Service is not something we endure on this earth so we can earn the right to live in the celestial kingdom. Service is the very fiber of which an exalted life in the celestial kingdom is made.
If you would make a man happy, study not to augment his goods;
but to diminish his wants. One of the greatest services Christianity has rendered the world has been its consecration of poverty, and its elevation of labor to the dignity of a moral duty.
Christmas: It's the only religious holiday that's also a federal holiday.
That way, Christians can go to their services, and everyone else can sit at home and reflect on the true meaning of the separation of church and state.

The only way you can serve God is by serving other people.

He who does not serve God where he is would not serve God anywhere else.

The highest form of worship is the worship of unselfish Christian service.
God has plans, not problems for our lives.
The life of a Christian is an education for a higher service. God is training you for something.
True Christianity is a life of sacrifice.
It requires that in everything we live for the Lord and others, not ourselves.
There is need of a great revival of spiritual life, of truly fervent devotion to our Lord Jesus, of entire consecration to His service. It is only in a church in which this spirit of revival has at least begun, that there is any hope of radical change in the relation of the majority of our Christian people to mission work.
Simply by our proximity to Jesus, we can bring hope and life to people and places trapped in discouragement and despair.
No man ever served God by doing things tomorrow.
One of the greatest rewards that we ever receive for serving God is the permission to do still more for Him.
To know the Word of God, to live the Word of God, to preach the Word, to teach the Word, is the sum of all wisdom, the heart of all Christian service.
You cannot be Christ’s servant if you are not willing to follow him, cross and all. What do you crave? A crown? Then it must be a crown of thorns if you are to be like him. Do you want to be lifted up? So you shall, but it will be upon a cross.
It is possible to be at the top of Christian service, respected and admired, and not have that indispensable ingredient by which God has chosen to work in His world today - the absolute sacrificial agape love of the Eternal God.
In the poor and outcast we see Christ’s face;
by loving and helping the poor, we love and serve Christ.
