14th Anniversary Celebration Devotional: Day 9

Day 9: EXPERIENCE
Ministry – The Dream Team

 

Let each of you look not only to his
own interests, but also to the interests of others. Philippians 2:4 ESV

 

As Paul writes in the above verse, it
is also important to consider the interests of others. To truly serve Christ we
must die to ourselves. Sometimes that means serving others in a way that meets
their needs, and taking a step out of our comfort zone. It’s often easy to
think we have little to offer either with our gifts, our financial resources or
our time. But God promises that if we are obedient in giving back with our
gifts, our finances and our time, He WILL bless us. Today before you enter into
prayer take some time to be still and receive from God. Allow Him to speak to
your heart. Ask Him to show you areas in your life in which your giving back
can be improved upon.

 

Prayer:

Praise God for gifting you with your
spiritual gifts. Praise God for the ultimate servant heart of Jesus Christ. Ask
God for forgiveness for times when you have been selfish with your resources in
the areas or time, talent or treasures. Thank God for the serving hearts of the
volunteers at C3. Thank Him specifically for someone who may stand out in your
mind from when you first attended. Pray that our church family would continue
to selflessly serve and give each weekend.
