Romans 1:09 - Serve with my Spirit Bookmark

Romans 1:9

"For God, whom I serve in my spirit in the preaching of the gospel of His Son, is my witness as to how unceasingly I make mention of you," (NASB)

"For God is my witness, whom I serve with my spirit in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing I make mention of you always in my prayers;" (KJV)

"God knows how often I pray for you. Day and night I bring you and your needs in prayer to God, whom I serve with all my heart by spreading the Good News about His Son." (NLT)

G3000
latreuo?
lat-ryoo'-o

From latris (a hired menial); to minister (to God), that is, render religious homage: - serve, do the service, worship (-per).

"For we who worship by the Spirit of God are the ones who are truly circumcised. We rely on what Christ Jesus has done for us. We put no confidence in human effort," (Philippians 3:3 NLT)

"That is why they stand in front of God's throne and serve Him day and night in His Temple. And He who sits on the throne will give them shelter." (Revelation 7:15 NLT)

"I want to call your attention first of all to that word serve.  It means literally 'to serve as a priest.'  It  was the Greek word used in the Septuagint translation of the Old Testament to refer to the service of the priests in the temple, including the idea of worship.  The same word is translated 'worship' in Philippians 3:3.  This word is a commentary on what true Christian service ought to be: we serve God as priests, and therefore every act of our service should be rendered to God as an act of worship.  In this light the distinction between sacred and secular disappears.  The very ground you walk on is holy, and every trivial act acquires meaning.  If you remember that, all your Christian service (no matter what it is) will become to you significant of that time when we shall be before the throne of God and 'serve him day and night in his temple' (Revelation 7:15).  Again the same Greek word is used that Paul uses here." Dr. Alva J. McClain, Romans: The Gospel of God's Grace

"Pray without ceasing. In every thing give thanks: for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus concerning you." (1 Thessalonians 5:17 KJV)

"Pray in the Spirit at all times and on every occasion. Stay alert and be persistent in your prayers for all believers everywhere." (Ephesians 6:18 NLT)

My spiritual worship in service for Christ is in Christ and from Christ "by the Spirit of God" and not as a result of "human effort."

Dear Heavenly Father, I am a man of unclean lips not worthy to even behold your presence in the temple where the angels cover their faces and feet so only their service shows.  Create in me a clean heart today that I might attend to the appointments you may bring my way.
