Imagine Seeing People as God Sees Them - Priceless and Worthy of our Serving Them!

(Part 7 of 7)

IV. Seeing People as God Sees Them—Priceless and Worthy of our Serving Them!

Life is priceless! To honor life is to be honored by God.

  • We find clear instruction for our life from God’s obvious protection through pregnancy care centers, doctors, nurses, adoption workers, foster families, and a vast array of others who care for children as gifts from the Lord (Psalms 127:3).

  • Beginning with our own children, grandchildren, and families—“He who provides not for his own family is worse than an unbeliever” (1 Timothy 5:8).

As we extend our charity and mentoring, our orphan care and protection of the unborn, might others say of us as it was the midwives of Moses, “So God was good to them” (Exodus 1:20).



Serving is Christ-like! We are never more like Jesus than when we are serving.

The greatest among you is one who serves” (Luke 22:26).

The burden and calling of Jesus in John 9 was to serve the man born blind. The burden and calling of each Jesus follower is to serve people in the work God puts before us.

It’s this wonder and mystery of serving that we see in the incarnation— that the Word would dwell among us and serve us all the way to the cross.


Serving others through the work He has put before you.

Even as we have reflected together on this man born blind, we might easily minimize the kingdom impact of our work, and yet viewed through the framework of a Christ-like servant’s heart, you are extending His life and love right in the work where He has “planted” you.


You might not encounter many born blind, but God sees every need and knows every story of those in the “traffic patterns” of our daily work. God hears each of their heart cries even as they intersect with us in our work. He sees and hears but do we? In closing, let’s focus on hearing what He hears and seeing what He sees.


Walking in the Light of God’s Son Through Frequent Encounters With Jesus (John 12:35, John 8:12).

The sheep hear his voice, and he calls his own sheep by name” (John 10:3).

Pause for the next few moments and ask God’s Spirit to bring insight and direction concerning God’s divine calling for your life. Claim this promise: “Call to me and I will answer you . . .” (Jeremiah 33:3).


Quietly ask the Lord, Why am I here? What special purpose do you have for me? What specific calling do you have for my life?

Now listen to the Lord. Celebrate that He longs to involve you and share these things with you, so that others might come to follow Him.
