If we serve God, He will honor us - John 12:26
If any man serve me, let him follow me; and where I am, there shall also my servant be: if any man serve me, him will my Father honour.
To serve Christ, one must follow Him. He would have His servants obey His teachings and resemble Him morally. All servants are promised the constant presence and protection of their Master, and this applies not only to the present life but to eternity as well. Service now will receive God’s approval in a coming day.
