Genuine Service.

“Amaziah was twenty and five years old when he began to reign, and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. And his mother’s name was Jehoaddan of Jerusalem. And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, but not with a perfect heart.” 2 Chronicles‬ ‭25:1-2‬ ‭KJV‬‬

We have learnt in church how kingdom service opens doors to men. We know how Elisha served Elijah and received his master’s mantle with a double portion of anointing. The Shunammite woman also got her open door to fruitfulness through her genuine service of hospitality and provision of a room for Prophet Elisha.

In our text today, Amaziah the King of Isreal, probably would have been serving for more than 29 years, doing the right thing in the house of God. He did what God commanded him to do. 

In today’s context, he joined the workforce in the church, would come regularly and kept to time, did not go late for any of the services. He would have been a faithful tithe payer, does not play with his offerings and also often sow seeds to the church. 

You know, people would have seen him and be like “wow, that brother is so dedicated” or “that Pastor is really a man of God, the way he preaches and all”. Church would have given him recognition for his services and praised him.

He actually did the right things, he really did serve well but NOT WITH A PERFECT HEART. He did not serve with genuineness. His reasons for doing all the services he did was not with a pure heart. He had other intentions in mind.

A perfect heart in service is working wholly and only with kingdom agenda in mind. No murmuring or working grudgingly but having the delight of God and His joy at heart while serving.

We often should ask ourselves, the reason we do the things we do in the name of service to God. Why did I join the workforce? Is it to show people that me too I am there and get attention? Is it to get praises from men or my Pastor? 

Men will only see what you do, but not why you do it. Remember, God sees the intent of our hearts that is deep down inside of us.


Father, have mercy on me in any way I have served you with a wrong motive and not with a pure heart. Holy Spirit, help me to make it right with you in everything I do in Jesus name. Amen
