There are several lies we cling to that hinder our availability. And surprisingly, not having time is not the only lie we tell ourselves. If you are honest with yourself, you do have time. You might be mismanaging it, but God gave us a sufficient amount. If you think about your first desire each day, you know that if there weren't time for it you would create time. And if it were something you wanted bad enough, you would find a way to squeeze it in. This should not be the case when it comes to serving God, or rather loving Him wholeheartedly. He should be the first priority and if anything, everything else should be squeezed in around that.

Other Lies we give into are that we are physically unable, unworthy, too anxious to be around people, too busy, ungifted, or have other priorities. We might even be self righteous in believing that we are sufficiently serving in other areas besides the body of Christ. But serving the world is loving the world. And if you love the world, the Father is not in you (1JOHN2:15) You can not serve two masters (MATT6:24) 

It is not that God needs you to love or serve Him wholeheartedly. It is that YOU need to love and serve Him wholeheartedly. You can expect Him to be working as prevalently in your life as you are prevalently working in His body. So, we just encourage you to take an honest look at your own heart and motives and evaluate whether or not your greatest desire is to love the Lord, His body, His people, and His commands.

 

Then nothing will stop you from serving.
