Him My Father Will Honor
Salt & Light Volume X, Issue 44 by D. Scott Prindle

"If anyone serves Me, let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me, him my Father will honor." (John 12:26)

Put your occupation in the blank.

If anyone serves Me (as a ___________________), let him follow Me; and where I am, there My servant will be also. If anyone serves Me (as a ___________________), him my Father will honor.

It was perfect. Four runs through eight plus inches of light fluffy snow. Very few people out on a Monday morning so every run was in untracked powder.

That morning I had meditated on this scripture and put "skier" in the blank. "If anyone serves Me (as a skier ), let him follow Me..."

What does that look like? On my next ride up the chairlift I would find out.

Nearing the top I saw a skier struggling uphill through deep snow. He had lost a ski and it was tough going in the bottomless powder. He was in an area not many ski in. I rarely go there.

Then came the Spirit inspired thought, "Go get his ski for him."

"What?" I thought. "Somebody else will help him. If not, he'll eventually get to it."

I already had my next run planned and assisting this guy would cause me to miss some great powder.

Next thought, "If anyone serves Me (as a skier ), him my Father will honor."

I caught myself, "Right. Serving Him can mean denying myself."

So I made my way down to his ski, picked it up and delivered it to him.

Of course he was grateful and I really didn't miss out on anything as I made the rest of my way down. In fact, it was really good snow.

What will serving Jesus look like for you today?
