Summoned to Serve

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe are called and admonished,

to do continual good;

for those who do as Jesus,

the word of God, understood.

Those who choose to do evil,

have not seen the heart of God;

rather, imitate Jesus,

the trustworthy path to trod.

Be kind to those who teach us,

show much hospitality;

for the sake of the Father,

side by side in unity.

Encourage those who’ve given,

their lives to serve our great Lord;

may He bless them and keep them,

support them in one accord.

To be church, be family,

care for sisters and brothers;

meet the needs that can be seen,

live, love and serve each other.

How we care well for our own,

our very testimony;

living life as a servant,

humble and faithful to Thee.

“Dear friend, do not imitate what is evil but what is good. Anyone who does what is good is from God. Anyone who does what is evil has not seen God.” – (3 John 11)

Dear Heavenly Father, thank You for sending Your Son, Jesus, to show us how to seek and serve You. He did not come and place Himself on a pedestal, but rather He loved and served others, even unto His death in our place. Thank You that after You rose and ascended into heaven, You sent Your Holy Spirit to lead and guide us in the way we are to go. Thank You too, for Your word that illuminates our path. We have been prepared to pursue You. Forgive us for ignoring known needs that You prompt us to meet, and grant us Your eyes to see others. Teach us to trust You more so that we are quick to care for others, and help us to show hospitality to Your servants. Show us how we are each called to serve. May many come to see You clearly as we walk in obedience to all that You ask. Father, please show us how to pray, love and obey. Amen.

Dear friends, please also join me in praying for my dear friend, Anne. She was showing signs of kidney failure in the wee hours of the morning, and has been taken to the ER. Father, please be her Comforter, her Healer, and her Peace. Thank You that You know her need and You hear our prayers. Amen.
