SERVING IN CREATIVE WAYS
Love One Another – A unique and exceptional service prompt.
We invite you to courageously step into this unique service prompt. Lean in, listen long, look with the eyes of compassion, and learn to love one another as God loves you.
A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. John 13:34
We serve one another in love every time we speak a word of encouragement, listen to a hurting heart, lend a helping hand, or compassionately meet a need. Each time we give of our wisdom, time, resources, and experience, we love one another like Jesus loves us.
Service is rooted in our love for God. Jesus pours out for us so that we can pour out for others. With chronic illness, serving in traditional ways can be difficult, but we were created by the One who spoke the universe into being … out of nothing.
And nothing about our God is “in the box.” He loves and meets us in radically creative ways every single day.
It isn’t how well we serve that’s important, but why. When we serve from a heart of love for Jesus, it is His love that moves our hands and gentles our hearts, speaks with kindness and compassion, and patiently engages with tenderhearted mercy.
Today, we invite you to “step out of the boat” of traditional service and listen for God’s still small Voice inviting you to serve one another in His way, out of His abundance, and for His delight and pleasure.
We’re excited to be launching Cultivate 2021 and Love One Another, our Creative Ways to Serve Prompt.
In each post, you’ll receive an email with a captivating image, an inspiring Scripture passage, and a unique and creative service prompt.
Serving reflects God’s love and points people to Jesus.
What happens when the Holy Spirit fills our hearts with God’s love? We serve Him by serving others! Kerry Shook
