COMPASSION AND CO-MISSION

Therefore go and make disciples of all nations...And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.
Matthew 28:19-20

Men and women who have had their lives transformed by Christ found themselves motivated by an unquenchable desire desire to serve the poor, the afflicted, the lonely and the neglected in major soup kitchens and world relief organizations around the world.
Belief in the Gospel placed the compassion of God in their hearts, which we also experience when we feel led to spend our time, energy and money to help those in need.
However, the church's greater calling is to share the Gospel throughout the world so everyone may know God's love and forgiveness.
God does not make us fend for ourselves when we minister to others but invites us to join Him where He is already at work. We go under His authority, with His abiding presence and in His strength.
Personal spiritual growth fuels outreach and outreach keeps our Christian lives from growing mundane and routine-like. Rather than separating our spiritual development from the church, we are at our strongest spirituality, emotionally and physically when we engage in both individual and communal ministry as the Spirit leads and directs us.

Lord Jesus, wherever You place us, my our words and actions reflect Your loving, compassionate heart to those around us. Thank You, God. Amen
