I know some of you reading this have been serving, seeking, and helping others for years, and I want to encourage you to continue! For those that may be new to this whole serving thing, I want to encourage you as well to just take that first step. In this passage it states that through Him we can do the good things he has planned for us long ago. He already has something in mind!! Maybe it is signing up for a service project, helping someone you work with that is in need, or being a friend to the classmate at school who is all alone. Many times it may seem scary and uncomfortable at first, but let me tell you it is well worth your effort. God will help you through any situation you find yourself in, He is just asking you to take that first step. You never know how much a kind word or act of kindness will mean to someone who does not experience that in their lives.
1. How does it make you feel knowing God already has plans for the good work you will do or are doing?
2. How can you take that first step or additional step this week?
Challenge: I know it is not always easy or comfortable, but God has promised He will help us through these times. If there is any way Hillcrest can help you in this journey, please let us know. We would love to come alongside you on this crazy and wonderful journey. He is calling us all to help and serve others, so let’s get out there and get started!!
