Saved to Serve

Praise to the God of All Comfort ] Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of compassion and the God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our troubles, so that we can comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves receive from God. 2 Corinthians 1:3-4 NIV

Fellowship with other believers can serve as the light in a dark tunnel–that we are saved to serve.  We are comforted to comfort others.  We are loved by God and His love is overwhelming that we are compelled to love others as well.  Because we are loved, we are more patient with others.  We are more willing to serve others.

Have you ever been in love?  Don’t you want to make others happy when you’re in love?  That’s how it is to be loved by God.

Commission. I am listening to the live stream of Colour Conference in Sydney via Hillsong Church.  It hit me.  Commission is done not by one but by the rest of other believers.  When you plant the seed, sometimes God will just ask you to plant the seed.  Then He will ask another believer to water it, then another to water it again until it grows.  Just do what God asks you to do. 🙂

Lord God, thank You for opening up opportunities to know You more, for fellowship.  Empower us to share Jesus with others so that they, too will have abundant peace and love that can only come from You.  In Jesus’ mighty name.  Amen.
