Title: Come, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD.
Author: Pastor Wallace Ong
Psalm 134: 1 – 3
A Song of Ascents.
1 Come, bless the LORD, all you servants of the LORD,
who stand by night in the house of the LORD!
2 Lift up your hands to the holy place
and bless the LORD!
3 May the LORD bless you from Zion,
he who made heaven and earth!
As Christians, we are called to be “servants of Christ.” What a joy and privilege to have God who made heaven and earth as our Lord! He knows how stubborn and imperfect we can be, He understands our hearts were wicked and prone to wander, and yet Christ died for us while we were still sinners.
It is truly a privilege, and wonderful to be the servant of the Lord MOST HIGH because He is the perfect King and God who loves us so dearly. We receive true peace in our heart, joy in our everyday living, and love abundance. We can then love, give and serve others with the love that He has bestowed upon us, and have the strength to forgive and forget the actions of those who were unkind to us.
When we come to our Lord and stand in His house, lift up our hands to the holy place of Zion and bless Him. This will help us constantly look to Him, adore Him, yield to the Holy Spirit, and He will enable us to bear good fruit.
As we consistently and daily abide in Him, we will find ourselves growing closer to Him, becoming stronger in faith, and feeling more secure in our relationship with Him. When we are filled with His love, joy, peace, and strength, we will be able to become His light and salt of this world, serving others with good works that glorify HIM.
Dear Heavenly Father, we are so thankful that we have been given the opportunity to be Your servant as well as Your children. As we see Your absolute and glorious attributes, we realized how far we have fallen short, and in so many ways. We thank You for Your continuous forgiveness and mercy. O Lord, give us a willing heart to accept and be led by Your Spirit. Guide us and teach us the way to serve You wholeheartedly. Thank You for what Jesus had done on the cross and Your way of redemption revealed in the Gospel. Strengthen our faith, O God, and use us in Your will to help others. Take away our selfishness and fill us with Your love and compassion. We pray in the name of Jesus. Amen.
