God does not forget your labor
For God is not unjust to forget your work and labor of love which you have shown toward His name, in that you have ministered to the saints, and do minister (Hebrews 6:10, NKJV).
Can I just tell you how proud I am of this church?
Part of our job is “the equipping of the saints for the work of the ministry” (Ephesians 4:12). We are equipping and sharpening one another to serve Christ and His bride, the church. So, it is exciting to see the church laboring for the Kingdom.
Recently, we put out a plea for help with the lawn and grounds, and people stepped up to help. We did the blitz and the healthcare clinic, and people stepped up to serve. This afternoon, we are hosting a community cookout, and people have stepped up to serve, setting up, fixing food, grilling, talking with the community, and praying.
We put out a plea, as we do every year, for help with VBS. What happened? Our church responded. We have teachers and workers and helpers and people inviting friends and people praying.
Next, New Mount Calvary Baptist Church invited us to serve with them, helping to provide summer lunches for kids in need, and several people have volunteered to serve.
Then, we had a request for help in Iowa to help Scott and Anita Hill. What happened in that situation? Well, again, people from our church volunteered to go and serve the Kingdom of God.
I cannot wait to see how God blesses and works through our church tonight at the cookout, next week at VBS, and throughout the summer with the children and as our church goes on mission to Iowa.
God will not forget your labor of love and how you have ministered to other believers.
