A Devotional in Serving
Scripture tells us that we are meant to Go! and preach the Good News. The book of Romans puts it like this;
Furthermore we are His, having received differing gifts through the Holy Spirit to serve Our Lord.
So, what do we do with these differing gifts? Serve His Body of course! The prior verses in 1 Corinthians also goes on to explain.
What a beautiful reminder that wherever we are in life, we are meant to be with each other and help each other no matter where they are. Now, I know what you're thinking. What can I possibly do to contribute and be useful to others. You may think you have nothing to share. You may say “But Lord, I don't have the power to heal”, but can you just listen? Can you hug a child? Can you encourage others or just simply cry with them when they are hurting. Your part of The Body and that can’t be a mistake. You have more to give than you think. Our Father is deliberate in his actions and his words are always true! Just ask someone who has had a major experience with The Great Commission. There is something unexpected that usually happens. You spend so much time preparing yourself to be a blessing to those in need but what usually happens it is you that is also blessed in such a complete and fantastic way. Only our Lord can do such things! Jesus also gives us the strength to walk in this task. Listen to his last words to his disciples before Heaven opened up to receive him.
So, What are your gifts to share with His people?
