How long has it been since you’ve seen a Help Wanted sign? When I was a teenager they were common all over town; today not so much. I can’t remember the last time I saw such a sign. Perhaps nobody needs any help…..
Yesterday I was speaking with a friend of mine about God wanting our help in expanding his Kingdom. God doesn’t need our help, He just wants us to be servants in sharing the Good News of His Son.
God has the ‘Help Wanted!’ sign out and is calling all believers to action. Each one has a skill, talent, or gift that God can use to share His hope with a dark and confused world. More and more of the people we meet in our daily travels are succuming to fear, hopelessness, guilt, and abandonment. Our God is just the opposite of these feelings and He wants you and I to share that Good News with the world.
Everyday I look for the opportunity to share God’s love with somebody. The softest way I know of to share the love of God is to offer to pray for hurting people. Luckily, our God is smart enough to remember each person, their need, and what would bless them. I quickly forget the details of why I am praying for somebody, but my God knows and I am able to trust that He hasn’t forgot the details.
God blesses those who step up and answer His ‘help wanted’ call. Each of us have some unique talent or ability that God can greatly multiply if we allow Him. Look for the opportunity to serve and you will be blessed.
Jesus said, “I didn’t come to be served, but I came to serve.”
