By Paula Willbrant, Ministry Pastor of Care
This is a Bible verse that highlights the purpose and importance of the “Pastoral Care Team” at COTHA. However, we are all servants whether we are on a care team at church or working in the secular world. Jesus reminds us, His followers, again and again that to find our lives, we have to lose them. We have to take up our cross and follow Him.
There are no excuses! We can conjure up every reason under the sun not to BE such a faithful servant, but bottom line, we ALL MUST put Jesus first, clothing ourselves with compassion and kindness and we must serve one another.
Every hour of every day God gives us opportunities to love and serve one another. We don’t have to look far to see a stranger who is being mistreated, or obviously lonely. It doesn’t cost us a single dime to offer a hand to help, or simply pass along a smile or word of encouragement. Like Nike says, JUST DO IT!!!!!
