“You’re never more like Jesus than when you serve” — Gene Wilkes
God wants us to serve in the way in which He has gifted us. Each believer has a unique way to serve God as the scripture describes. We are to discover the gifts He has given us and then allow God to use who we are to bring others closer to Him.
We serve because Christ first served us. Jesus’ ministry was focused on teaching and meeting the practical needs of the people around him. Serving others inside the church and in the community is a key way we can demonstrate the love of Christ and draw others to him.
Find a place to serve…
There are many places and ministries within the church and community that you can serve in. Begin by discovering your spiritual gift and learning how God has uniquely equipped you for ministry. It might be teaching, hospitality, administrative help or many other roles.
