One of the most distinguishable qualities of a Christian is his service toward others. Just like what Jesus Christ when He walked on this earth, a believer should do whatever it takes to serve others with compassion and mercy. But why?
Most Christians tell others that God loves them, and that He offers that love to everyone. However, love is an abstract term, thus cannot be seen, felt or understood properly. In order for love to really come alive, it should be shown through actions, such as giving and serving.
Only when a follow of Jesus does this giving and serving would he be able to show what kind of love God wants to give to others who have no hope. Serving others has a goal, that is to lead more people to have faith in God.
