When we’ve experienced the goodness of our God, a desire to serve, to engage, and to participate is the natural response. We are not content to simply observe or consume, and we can’t imagine keeping the good news of God’s love to ourselves. We serve.
We serve in the Church because in God’s home we are HOSTS – active participants in the family of God – caring for those in his family and welcoming those who haven’t experienced the wholeness in Jesus as we have. We serve in our community and world because we are sent into our neighborhoods, cities, and world to make a Kingdom IMPACT. We are the hands and feet of Jesus, called to love and serve all people, showing them the One who loves them most.
