1. The Problem of Evil, part 9; Service

Last week, I described gratefulness to God as a component of the faith of Christ. Genuine expressions of gratefulness should be more than words; they should involve actions. As such, I think that central to Christian faith is service to God. How can we serve God?

Jesus served God by serving others. He washed the feet of his disciples and he prayed for the realm of God “on earth as in heaven.” He said that righteous people can be discerned from unrighteous people: “you will know them by their fruits” (Matthew 7:16, 7:20). Similarly, James said, “faith by itself, it has not works, is dead” (2:17).

I see Christians as called to protect and serve all of Creation, which we should regard with awe and wonder and receive in gratefulness. A position of humility, care, concern, and gratefulness is open to everyone, regardless of their religious views. As Christians, we can be light unto the nations (Isaiah 42:6), which might lead humanity out of these dangerous times to a world where all might flourish and live in peace.
