"The Big Serve"Stuart Jones“It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no person can sincerely try to help another without helping him or herself. Serve and you shall be served. If you love and serve people, you cannot, by any hiding or stratagem, escape the remuneration.” (Ralph Waldo Emerson) Service Sunday is a fun day in the lives of the people at First Christian Church. It is a day dedicated to “serving the world” right here in our own community. We are making an offering of time and effort in order to positively impact the Kingdom of God. The Bible tells us the importance of serving others, and Jesus himself set the perfect example for us. In The Wisdom of Jesus, Christ is described as “the most generous-hearted person who ever lived. He never refused a request for help. Great multitudes followed Him, and He healed them all. He went out of His way to cross racial and religious barriers. He compassed the whole world in His love.” (1989, Publications International, Ltd.) Perhaps Jesus said it best in Luke: “Give and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you.” (Luke 6:38)
