Sunday's Message
October 8, 2017

SERVE WITH WHAT YOU'RE GIVEN

At least 59 people were killed and 524 injured in a shooting on the Las Vegas Strip.  As people were being slaughtered others were binding up the wounded, putting themselves in harm’s way.  They were using their shirts and whatever else was available to serve their fellow humans.  Now people are giving blood, not for Democrats or Republicans, not for Christians or Muslims but for people.  It’s just people serving people.

We need to serve others with what we’re given – whatever physical, material, mental and spiritual resources we have.      

This Sunday I’m preaching on “Serve with What You’re Given” about the parable of the talents in Matthew 25:14-30.  Our word “talent” comes from this parable.  “Talent” originally meant a weight of money – about 75 pounds.  A master going on a journey entrusted his “talents” to his slaves.  When he returned he expected a return on his money.  Likewise, God expects us to serve him with what he’s entrusted to us.       

We don’t all have the same talents, spiritual gifts and material goods, but we’re expected to act boldly, creatively, faithfully and lovingly with what God has given us in order to add to his kingdom.  Please come Sunday and learn to serve with what you’re given. 

Meanwhile, let’s pray for the people of Las Vegas, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, the Virgin Islands, Puerto Rico, the other Caribbean Islands and Mexico.  Great tragedies have struck our world recently.  Let’s offer ourselves in service through prayers, giving and deeds.

With love in Christ,
Dr. Jim Meek
