This week, while I was doing some pastoral calling. Everywhere I went I heard unsolicited reports of kind deeds, acts of mercy, and good works, done by someone in the church for others. Potato soup for shut-ins, auto repairs for widows, help for young mothers, and visits to those who are sick. I could write you a long list. These deeds were done without fanfare. I can tell you that more is happening than you will ever see. More good deeds are being done than you will ever know. More ministry is accomplished at Evangel than human beings will ever record.
While people are trying to love God and serve God my family and other staff families frequently get “caught in the cross-fire” of these kind acts of giving, worship, and devotion. We are all very much in debt.
As a pastor it warms my heart to see how often the Spirit of God inspires the people of God to do the works of God to advance the Kingdom of God. Keep up the good work. It is kingdom work. Jesus is worthy of our greatest acts of devotion and kindness.
