Someone is coming soon who is . . . so much greater that I’m not even worthy to be his slave and untie the straps of his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and with fire (Luke 3:16).
A gospel song by Mahalia Jackson expresses that without God, we can’t do anything, and that we must depend on Jesus. We might nod at the lyrics and sing along, but perhaps we could take a moment to ponder how much we really do live out our faith in this wholehearted way. Do we depend on Jesus fully, rather than on the trappings of religion or tradition? Do we know in both our head and our heart that our sins are forgiven?
Jesus said that He came not to be served, but to serve. We want to follow His example and be servants, whether it’s within our church, our community, or across the globe. Serving gives us the opportunity to use our gifts to benefit the people around us, and we grow in the process.
If you’re ready to serve, we’re ready to help you find a place to get started!
