Love of God should spur us to serve

 

Jesus began His ministry at about the age of 30 in Galilee by reaching out and touching the lives of people. His first miracle was the wedding in Cana (John 2:10). “Usually a host serves the best wine first but you have kept the best wine until now.” But this miraculous event did not astound witnesses like the power Jesus displayed in healing those in need. His ability to teach, cure and cast out demons not only excited the disciples but all who sought to be healed.


Yet Jesus does not stay in one place. He tells His disciples through Peter, still Simon, that all people should hear His proclamation of the Gospel. He laments that He does not belong to any one sect but to all. Nor does all the work of God need to be completed in one community. Instead, He equips us to complete and foster the ministries that have been started. His goal is to restore others so they can be productive again. Mark 1:30, 31 is a good example. “Simon’s mother-in-law was sick in bed with a high fever. He went to her bedside and took her by the hand, helped her to sit up, and the fever suddenly left and she got up to prepare a meal for them.”


As Jesus prepared His disciples and others to carry on His ministry, He intends for us to get our hands dirty to heal and comfort where applicable. Where do you think we fit in this scenario? Real greatness in Christ’s kingdom is shown by service and sacrifice. Ambition of love, or power, or position should not be our motive. Instead our love for God and Christ should be our impetus.


Remember, Sunday services are at 8 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. Refreshments for all are served in the Fellowship Hall before Sunday School at 9:15. Be safe!
