One of the things I love about being involved with ministry is helping out others. I like helping people both inside and outside of church and also in my workplace.
One thing in particular I like is being able to do is help people with church roles they are unable to do. We had an example on the weekend where someone could not do communion at the last minute.
I was able to pray, look at this website, and see if there was anything suitable for communion. I recently led communion in Bruce Rock and talked about the anguish Jesus felt while praying in the Garden of Gethsemane.
This fit in with the service and because I had done it recently, it was still fresh in my mind. And as it often does, it fit in with the songs and theme of the service.
Serving God is a great joy for me. Especially when I can step up and help others in church. It is such a blessing to be able to do this when I am needed.
How about you? In what ways do you like to help others in the church, the community or the workplace? I think that is worth reflecting on today.
