What a joy it is to see those you have ministered to begin to minister to others! I count it a privilege to minister to people. It is a job I do not deserve, a duty that is a gift. I am starting to experience an even deeper joy. The people I have ministered to in the name of the Risen Savior are ministering to others in the name of Christ.
Our little church has a lot of ministers. There are people reaching out and loving others, sharing the love of Jesus, and having a faith that is alive with works.
I visited Marie in the hospital during her dark times. She now visits the hospital, loving the infirm with a depth impossible before her own trials.
Jeff came to Dayspring seeking what Dan had, and now brings others to share what he found.
Bob had a grudge against preachers, [ understandable] and now is every Pastor’s dream, an elder who can teach, preach and pray.
Melinda was a youth in Praise team, now leads a praise team and ministers to youth.
Mike was an agnostic alcoholic, and now shares the Truth with the struggling as only someone who has been there could do.
Young Michael, who at one time had no communion with the Lord, now prepares His Table in true worshipful service.
Little Jessica, [2 years old] , the one for whose life we prayed, now hands out bulletins . [You should see this, she takes her job seriously!]
G and P ,who once received economic help from the church, now bless the church with what God has given.
The Holy Spirit is working on us all to make us usable for the Kingdom. can anyone ask more?
