October 10, 2016
Our church is doing an entire month focusing on service to our community. I am very proud of the efforts of our congregation. Many of us have stepped way outside of our comfort zones to serve God's people in so many ways. We are just people. We don't have to have a fancy title or a ton of knowledge to serve. We just have to love the Lord and have a desire to take care of His flock. Acts 4:30 reads, "Stretch out your hand and perform miraculous signs and wonders through the name of your holy servant, Jesus." These words of Peter and John clearly call all believers to action. These men did not have formal religious education but they did have a deep belief in the power of Jesus. Jesus gave these men the gift to serve and He has given us that gift as well. These men prayed that the Lord would give them opportunity to serve. We should follow their lead and fervently ask God to provide the way for us to serve Him. Hold on to your hat though! You never know what Jesus will do with you when you offer Him a willing heart!
