This past Sunday, we had our Second Annual “Labor for the Son” Day. The idea behind this day is to truly “be” the church. The word “church” never really meant a place to go until the German word “kirche” was used to define the church. All of a sudden, the mindset changed from “being the church” to “going to church.” We may go to church once or twice (or more) times per week, but we should “be” the church everyday. This past Sunday was (and is) a reminder to us of that fact and an opportunity for us to let our light shine before men.
Rick Sons led us in a devotional and a time of prayer before we were mobilized to go out into our community. He challenged us to drive around and see what the needs of our town are. He also challenged each of one of us to walk around each of our own streets and pray intentionally for our neighbors.
There were projects accomplished and prayer walks accomplished. Only God and those who were served know who specifically was a light in their world that day. Let us pray that we will remember to “be” the church everyday and to do so with a humble, servant heart.
