Why Serve?

1 Peter 4:10-11 states, “Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.”

What are your God-given strengths? Has he blessed you with special talents, knowledge, or a heart that longs to help certain causes? What gives you joy? Ask yourself these questions honestly. It’s time to let God use you, and what makes you unique, to serve His kingdom joyfully and intentionally. You can serve in a way that Jesus shines through you!

There are plenty of ways to serve here at Immanuel, in our community, and beyond. Let us help you find ways to use your strengths and joys to bring the joy of Jesus to others.
