Each of you should use whatever
gifts you have received
to serve others,
as faithful stewards
of God’s grace
in its various forms.
It’s Just What We Do
“We love because He first loved us.” (1 John 4:19). Service is simply part of a Christian’s life. It’s just what Christians do. The more we learn about the immense love God has for us in Jesus, the more we desire to express our gratitude to him in service to others. God’s love motivates us to follow St. Paul’s directive, “Serve one another humbly in love” (Galatian 5:13). Grace provides opportunities for you to serve the congregation, the Charlotte community, as well as outside our city.
There is always time for the important things in life. And serving the Savior is an important thing. Make time. Make it a priority. Service isn’t just important to those being served. It is essential to those serving too. Many times the most cherished blessings are found in acts of service. Find those blessings at Grace.
Be a Role Model
It’s been said that more is caught than taught. If you don’t serve, your children won’t serve either. Be an example to the next generation of church leaders. Don’t just talk about the importance of serving with your children, show them it is important. Be the servant you want your children to become.
