Our Vital Role

The servant has a vital and dangerous role in the lives of those he/she serves. They grow when he/she does and they mature as he/she does. They see in him/her what they believe to be the image of Christ. On the other hand a stumbling servant will offend those he/she serves, hurting their conscience and obstructing their spiritual growth. This necessitates that we continuously nurture our spirits in meditations and prayers, with strife and humility, in training to give. The more we serve, the more quiet time we should spend; and the more exercise in sacrifice, endurance and self-control we need. It is said that a sinner repents only when he sees the love of Christ incarnated in the life of whosoever ministers to him.


X  (2 Cor 5:20 NKJV) Now then, we are ambassadors for Christ, as though God were pleading through us.
