S. O. A. P.
Here’s Your 90 second AM Devotional!
So the word of God spread. The number of disciples in Jerusalem increased rapidly, and a large number of priests became obedient to the faith.
The sixth chapter of Acts records the institution of the ministry of deacons in the church. The Apostles had been so overwhelmed trying to care for the daily duties of “Church Work” that they were in jeopardy of neglecting the Word of God. When they appointed deacons to handle the “Church Work,” everything grew MORE.
It’s true, “Spread The Work In Order To Spread The Word.” Whenever and wherever leaders have opened the door for people to have greater opportunities to serve, more people find it necessary to stay planted in the house of the Lord. When people are planted in the house of the Lord they flourish (Ps. 92:13)! When people begin to flourish as a result of obeying the Lord, they feel indebted. There’s a sense of spiritual payback. Spiritual connection to one another and the House of the Lord is somewhat like a Holy Spirit combustible force that is attractive. But it all starts when leadership “Spreads The Work In Order To Spread The Word.”
Help me to create more avenues of service for the people I lead. I want to “Spread The Work In Order To Spread The Word!” Amen
