Jesus said in Matthew 9:37, “The harvest is plentiful, but the workers are few.” And here’s what fires me up about Fellowship Church. I want to applaud your work ethic. You people blow me away. I’ve seen it for 14 years. The work ethic that you’re involved in by inviting people, through your work and prayer and diligence through your preparation; with conversations with God and with inviting others with; with stepping up in so many ways.
It is just so inspirational to me. And there’s been many, many weekends where I’m kind of feeling down and I’m like, “You know, I’m the dude with the food, but I don’t feel like cooking this weekend.” But I’ll see an act of service, I’ll see someone bring someone else or I’ll know that person is a person without Christ, or I’ll know this person has a marriage problem, or I know that person just experienced a death and is asking these big questions and they’re going through all these issues, and that just energizes me. So thank you, thank you, thank you from the bottom of my heart. But see, we can’t stop here. We have to continue doing the stuff.
The preparation is a huge piece. But also, there’s the presentation as well. When we serve the food, we have to serve the food, as I said earlier, where people can get it and understand it. You know, we don’t just throw the food on the table and say, “Do with it what you want. Just throw the food, play in the food, we’re not going to give you utensils.”© Copyright 2012 admin, All rights Reserved. Written For: Ed Young
