Why we serve…

I am so grateful for all of the actionchurch folks who will be serving this weekend…and every weekend.   Whether it’s making a delicious shaved ice cup for someone, picking up trash, serving coffee…or breakfast…or serving someones kid by providing a great and safe area to play.  Whether you load heavy things, or twist tiny knobs, or teach tiny toddlers, EVERYTHING we do at actionchurch should point to one thing…one person.

Jesus said it this way:

“In the same way, let your light shine before men, that they may see your good deeds and praise your Father in heaven. ”   -Jesus   (Matthew 5:16 NIV) 

We “shine our lights” so that people can see Jesus. It should work sort of like a properly focused stage light.   Our acts of service should make it easier to see the one we focus on…Jesus.   If people notice the stage light…and not the person it’s supposed to be focused on…it’s distracting instead of being helpful.

Thank you all for letting your lights shine.  I pray that EVERY THING we do points people to our kind and generous heavenly father.
