Proverbs 3:27-28 (The Message) --- Never walk away from someone who deserves help; your hand is God's hand for that person. Don't tell your neighbor "Maybe some other time" or "Try me tomorrow" when the money's right there in your pocket.
Our people at The Community are gearing up for SERVolution that begins today. Tonight we have 2 teams going out to share Jesus through acts of kindness at Laundromats and in some low income neighborhoods. Tomorrow that will mushroom into more and more teams doing more and more things. Oh, I'm excited about all that God is doing.
What I am most exicted about is seeing people who have never served serve for the very first time. Another part is the people who rarely serve that are getting into the action. Have you ever noticed that excitement are energy are the best ways to get people involved in the work of the church? It is happening right here.
We ain't seen nothing yet. There is so much more coming that we are not going to be able to hold back the overflow. I'm expected to hear stories and to watch lives changes. That is lives on both sides of the table: those who already know Jesus and those who don't know Him yet.
Who are the people you live around, work with and such?
2 Corinthians 6:6 (nlt) --- We prove ourselves by our purity, our understanding, our patience, our kindness, by the Holy Spirit within us, and by our sincere love.
Proverbs 11:17 (nlt) --- Your kindness will reward you...
Matthew 5:7 (nlt) --- God blesses those who are merciful,for they will be shown mercy.
That is who I want to be and want to be known as. That is what I pray the people I am honored to lead will be and be known as. As SERVolution takes off, my prayer is that none of us will be same as we create a culture of hope and acceptance as we display the love of God through simple acts of kinds.
