a last thought on service…

As I prepare for the mission with youth… gathering up paper… pens… on which to write thoughts… I find a Word… that needs to be tucked in my heart… for such a week…

For you were called to freedom, brothers.
Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh,
but through love serve one another.
Galatians 5:13
ESV

Freedom… an opportunity to serve others…

And scrawled below this verse… was a definition…

serve the Greek meaning… to be a slave… serve… do service…

To serve… with love… free to enslave oneself to the needs of others… is the only way… to servewith joy… and without complaining… or grumbling

Lord Jesus… here’s to a week… of service… through love… and with joy… this is only possible through the freedom found in You… help me to walk in that freedom…
