1 Corinthians 16:15, “I beseech you, brethren, (ye know the house of Stephanas, that it is the firstfruits of Achaia, and that they have addicted themselves to the ministry of the saints…” Addiction is typically a terrible word. We usually think of it in relation to drinking or drugs. However, in this verse we see a very good addiction: being addicted to the ministry of the saints. What a blessed addiction! To commit ourselves to serving our fellow believers in Christ is one that will honor our Lord and benefit our fellow saints. Whether the need is spiritual, emotional, or physical, may we addict ourselves to serving one another. With a heart to serve, the Lord will surely direct us into a life of service to others.
Galatians 5:13, “…by love serve one another.”
