:::WHY Love One:::
“Each one should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, he should do it as one speaking the very words of God. If anyone serves, he should do it with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen.” 1 Peter 4:10-11 Peter makes it clear that we have received our gifts from God for two purposes— to serve others and to bring praise to God. Serving isn’t about us receiving attention or glory; it is for Him to receive glory. In all that we do, we serve others so that God may be seen. It is out of our love for Christ that we serve. So that others may see Him and desire to know who Jesus is. In doing so, we have the opportunity to bring others to Christ. Which is another reason WHY we do what we do…so that MORE may be added to the Kingdom of Christ Jesus. It brings us GREAT JOY to love on, pray over, and to SERVE those whom Jesus brings into our lives through the Love One ministry.
