He shows Mercy and Grace………..   4 comments

*********

The Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve,
and to give His life as a ransom for many.” Matthew 20 : 28

When we wait for others to wait on us- we may find the outcome disappointing.
It happens in every day living.
We wait for complements  – we don’t receive  -or recognition- we do not get
In each case we have expectations of service -which we did not receive.

If we focus our attention on self
-our feeling:  our expectations and our rights –
it indicates that we want others to serve us.
God calls us to serve others.
Jesus came to give His life in service for others
and He asks us to follow His example.

Ministry is being unselfish,
His Love through us makes us think of the needs of others than our own.
By inquiring- “what can I do for someone?”
Ministry is – words of witness about God’s love;
Encouragement for the hurting and lonely person who needs support.
It reaches out to people with broken emotions and relationships:

It is Christ serving others through us- if we have this vision  for SERVICE to others.

Help us to be mindful of the needs of others-
Take our focus off us and ask God to go with us.
