Thankfulness #24-Being The Church

Then the King will say to those on the right, “Come, you who are blessed by my Father; take your inheritance, the kingdom prepared for you since the creation of the world. For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me, I was sick and you looked after me. I was in prison and you came to visit me. Matthew 25:34-36

As Christians we have heard the story of the sheep and the goats in the Gospel of Matthew. We are called to be the church not just with our words but with our deeds. One of the ways that most of us did was to get together to put together these buckets of cleaning supplies. These supplies are delivered all around the world for people who are in need of after a natural disaster such as a hurricane, floods and so on. Before this pandemic many of the churches did just that, put buckets of cleaning supplies together. On this Sunday afternoon we did one hundred buckets that were sent out.

For the last seven years the church I was serving at ran a free London broil dinner for the community. We would get different businesses to sponsor the dinner and we would prepare the free meal for others. I remember the one month that I over saw the dinner that we feed 170 people that day and with the grace of God we never ran out of food. (Praise God) The picture above is myself with some of my staff helping during the Christmas Season.

Before I knew that God was calling me to be a Pastor, I served in children’s ministry by directing vacation Bible school in the summer, as well as leading Sunday School. I have direct VBS for more than fifteen years and I must admit I was the biggest kid there by getting dress up and bring the Bible to life for children of all ages.

I have shared more than once when I have preach that as Christians we are not just call by Christ to be a pew warmer, we are all called to serve Him and others with our gifts. Nothing brings me more joy than to share the Gospel of Jesus Christ to others, and more important how our Lord walks with me and my family in our journey. I am nothing without the Lord Jesus Christ and what I have done with my own life so far, He deserve all the Praise and Glory.

Today I am thankful for sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ with others.

Grace and Peace to You My Friends
