Why Serve?

Our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ informs us that God’s “greatest commandment” is to “Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind” and to “Love your neighbor as yourself” (Matthew 22:37-39).  When asked who is our neighbor, Jesus responded telling the story of the “Good Samaritan” (Luke 10:25-37), clearly revealing that our neighbor is anyone in need whom we have the opportunity and capacity to help.  Jesus further said, “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers of mine, you did for Me” (Matthew 25:40), so doing for others is the same as doing for Him, honoring Him.  And finally, we are to do more than care for people’s physical needs, but also share the “good news” that Jesus has come bringing forgiveness, salvation, and life eternal to all who will receive and believe in Him.  Jesus has given us the “great commission” to “Go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you” (Matthew 28:19).  Therefore, we are not sitting idle waiting for people to enter our doors.  We worship at church, but our real work for Christ is serving Him in the world.  Come grow with us!
