Bedtime Stories

Life Group was a lot of fun tonight. Patricia was a gracious host, and Venus was a superb leader in our lesson plan for tonight. Tonight’s topic was all about ‘Acts Of Service’ – another one of ‘The Five Love Languages For Singles‘. We talked about those people in our Life who have personally spoken acts of service to us recently, as well as some of the various ways that we see others performing acts of service.

The common denominator to these acts of service was God. Serving Him. When we serve others without regard to whether or not we’ll be paid or served in return – when we serve others as a sheer act of love – when we serve others and feel fantastic while doing so – that’s when we totally serve our Lord Almighty.

There are lots of lost, dazed, confused, and directionless people in this world of ours that have never been served, and have never served others. They look at serving as a job to look down to – as an act of pity. They just don’t know Him.

Jesus served us more than we can ever serve Him. He gave up His Life for us so that we could live. To honour God is to serve Him freely.

Our homework assignment for this week is to perform acts of service for at least three friends this week and then watch as they respond to it.

Next week we’re doing Life Group twice – once on Tuesday night (food, fun, and fellowship at Anne J.’s house), and then our regularly scheduled Wednesday night session. I’m looking forward to it.

Have a peaceful and comfortable Wednesday night everyone, and I Love You Ela. I’ll be talking to God in a few minutes, and I’ll be talking to Him all about you.
