HELPERS IN THE KINGDOM
TEXT: ROMANS 16: 3
â€œGreet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesusâ€ (Romans 16: 3).
Commenting on â€˜Acts of Kindnessâ€™, an author testified: â€œI was travelling with some men when we spotted a family stranded alongside the road. My friends immediately pulled over to help. They got the car running, talked with the family, and gave them money for gasoline. When the family that was helped thanked them repeatedly, they replied, â€œWeâ€™re glad to help, and we do it in Jesusâ€™ name.â€ As we drove away, I thought of how natural it was for those friends to help people in need and acknowledge the Lord as the source of their generosity. What a challenge! You too can be a helper in Godâ€™s kingdom. Beloved, you are saved to help others like Priscilla and Aquila did. In what way can you help in the Church or school fellowship to reduce the burden on ministers? Kindness is a good tool in evangelism. Be sensitive to opportunities to help in the kingdom. Help weak students with their studies, assist the poor and needy youths with their needs. God keeps record of your deeds and will abundantly reward you.
Challenge: Your help in the kingdom will be a blessing to others.
Prayer: Lord, make me a faithful helper in your kingdom.
Quote: You are saved to help others.
