Responding To God’s Love Through Action
“The King will reply, ‘Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.’” Matthew 25:40
Responding to God’s Grace:
Christians are called to show God’s love to others through service. Each of us possess skills and talents, which, when used together as a group, allow us to make a meaningful difference in the lives of others –in our community as well as in distant lands. Through these tangible acts of love of each other and our “neighbors,” the family at Central Presbyterian Church strives to reflect God’s love.
“As each one has received a gift, use it to serve on another as good stewards of God’s varied grace.” 1 Peter 4:10 (ESV)
There is a place for you:
Serving others with your time, talents, and treasures is an important element of responding to all that we have been given by God. You have been entrusted with unique gifts – for some, particular skills and talents, for others, wealth, and for others, the deep desire to learn in order to teach – in order to make the greatest impact on others.
There is remarkable joy in discovering how your life can hold more meaning through a personal connection with God through serving others in the name of Christ. God wants you to do the best with what you have. Read 2 Corinthians 8:1-9:15 to read the Apostle Paul’s stewardship plan.
God has a place for you in his mission. If you have questions about how that place can be found at Central Presbyterian Church of Waxahachie, please contact us.
“Each of you should give what you have decided in your heart to give, not reluctantly or under compulsion, for God loves a cheerful giver.” 2 Corinthians 9:7(NIV)
