One of the best ways to meet people, develop relationships, and grow as a follower of Christ is to serve. And it’s not just on the weekends! Serving opportunities are available seven days a week.
What is Serving — Really?
I need a thousand things every day. I have big needs and small needs. Everyone around me does too. Sometimes the people around me see my needs before I do. The real treasure is when we act on what we see. When we shoot the text to the co-worker who had a tough day or move the elderly neighbor's trash can to the curb.
As we allow the Gospel to change our hearts, we will develop a deep care for other people. Our attention will begin to turn away from ourselves and to the needs of others (Galatians 5:13). A good measure of our spiritual health is our depth of concern for other people. Eventually, our hearts are so in tune with what Jesus is doing around us, He begins to use us to meet the needs of others.
Serving in the Church
The Gospel is enacted through the church all across the world. The church is us: people who love Jesus serving others by parking cars, holding babies, to praying with others, pouring coffee, and opening their homes.
In this, God changes us. Serving in the church is a vehicle to discover how we are made and how the Lord can use us. Serving provides us the opportunity to know more about how we are created: our likes and dislikes, what we can do well and what we cannot.
God fills in the picture for us. We discover more about ourselves and how He is growing us while He uses us to meet the needs of others. We learn best by doing.
