Serving Along the Journey

This past weekend, I had the opportunity to be part of our speaking team during the services at SeaCoast Grace Church. For the last couple of weeks we’ve been on The Journey to Easter, talking about how to prepare our heart and mind for resurrection by discussing the purposes of Lent. This weekend we concluded our series, by talking about acts of service. As a pastoral team, we each unpacked amazing stories from those at SCG who have picked up the towel to serve the needs of those around us.

I invite you to grab a cup of coffee, sit down and be inspired by the faith of God’s people who saw a need, took a risk, assessed their gifts, resourced a need and told the Story.

    What a great message! I love the woman at the beginning who says “I can’t do everything, BUT I can do something.” It’s so true! How many times have I heard, or have I myself asked, “God, what is your will for my life?” I now realize that this is the wrong question! What we are called to do is to simply respond to what God is already doing. This message outlines it so well. See the need, take a risk, THEN assess my gifts, allow GOD to resource it and tell everyone I know about it. I think that so often we want to know all the details before we join in and we put limits on the outcome because we are “assessing” in terms of what man can do, not what God can do through man. John 15:5, “I am the vine, you are the branches. If a man remains in me and I in him he will bear much fruit, apart from me you can do nothing.” Thanks for the clarity of this message. Well done.

      A brilliant synopsis of the message! And I love your input of how often we assess opportunities in terms of what man can do, not what God can do through man! If we can only get it in our brains that the same power source that resided in these great men and women of the Bible also resides in us! Thanks Susan for your great reminder.
