Service to the church...

"This service that you perform is not only supplying the needs of God's people but is also overflowing in many expressions of thanks to God. Because of the service by which you have proved yourselves, men will praise God for the obedience that accompanies your confession of the gospel of Christ, and for your generosity in sharing with them and with everyone else. And in their prayers for you their hearts will go out to you, because of the surpassing grace God has given you. Thanks be to God for his indescribable gift!"  2 Cor. 9:12-15

Today, I am again proud of the leadership at FBC Hooks.  We had 59 names on the list for volunteer training yesterday.  I had made 60 folders thinking we would have plenty left over for next time and worried about wasting church money on copies.  Guess God knew better.  Thank you for coming out, not knowing all the details, but trusting that we were doing something important.  God had clearly gone before us, prepared hearts and made the path much easier than what I was expecting.  Thank you God and thank you FBC.  

The Scripture given above relates to the giving of financial gifts from the church in Corinth when discussed in context.  However, I would like to extend that application to the fact that "the service", meaning in whatever way you are serving God's church, will praise God and the result will be that "men will praise God."  Through your faithful service and preparation, like yesterday, folks will come to know Christ.  That is exciting.  Your service is an incredible gift from God and I am thankful that you have chosen to use that gift to further His kingdom.

God's blessings,

Bro. Grant
