"All You Need is Love"Doug MitchellMany of us have read the passage in Matthew 25 (NIV) where Jesus says; “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat. I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink. I was a stranger and you invited me in. I needed clothes and you clothed me. I was sick and you looked after me. I was in prison and you came to visit me. Truly, I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these, you did for me!”   Sunday, October 12 is Service Sunday. This day and every day we have an amazing opportunity to love people and serve others at the same time. Matthew 20:28 says; “Just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give His life a ransom for many.” Jesus came to serve, not be served. He came longing only to give and sacrifice himself for others. What a beautiful image of what we are all called to do for each other.   Serving others means giving our time, strength, energy, finances and talents to another person without expecting anything in return. God has created each of us with a purpose to love and serve one another. Our greatest joy and fulfillment is found by living according to His purposes for our life.   So let our service for our friends, family, classmates and even strangers today be performed as though we were actually serving Christ. Because in truth, we are!
