Topic: COMMUNITY SERVICE (Giving Gift And Impact Another)
Our dear father and Lord, thank you for another day and another week in Jesus mighty name. Amen. Protect and keep watch over us even as you prosper the works of our hands in Jesus name. Amen.
Many are Christian that are so much spiritual that their understanding is still very shallow as regard care for another. They are more concern about their personal self and will say 'Christianity is a personal race and so let everybody take care of their selves'. It becomes a challenge to care for another, not even a care for a friend in place of the church or their immediate community. Another reference to make is 'love your neighbour as yourself not more than yourself'. With all these COMMUNITY SERVICE becomes a challenge and this the enemy take advantage of our communities.
Community: The people with common interests living in a particular area
Service: Contribution to the welfare of others
Community Service is contributing to the welfare of the people one share common interests together in a particular area.
The children of Israel when the Lord instructed them to build the tabernacle, all gave gift. And not that alone, they ensured that the gift were not just given but judiciously used.
Moses instructed them to take his message throughout the camp, saying, “Let no man or woman do any more work for the offering for the sanctuary.” So the people were restrained from bringing any more. It is our responsibilities to ensure we not just give gift to or offering to our church or community, we should rather give and keep watch over the good usage of such gift.
"Now the materials were more than enough for them to do all the work. All the skilled among those who were doing the work made the tabernacle with ten curtains of fine twisted linen and blue and purple and scarlet; they were made with cherubim that were the work of an artistic designer. The length of one curtain was forty-two feet, and the width of one curtain was six feet – the same size for each of the curtains." Exodus 36:6-9 (NET)
I pray this week shall release for you every necessities needed to keep you strong and responsible in Jesus name. Amen. Jehovah will connect you and reconnect you to the link of your testimony in Jesus name. Amen. You will prosper in the your endeavours this week in the mighty name of Jesus Christ. Amen.
Help someone around you and ensure your community is feeling your impact. The grace to impact another is hence release for you in Jesus name. Amen. Happy new week and good morning.
