“Service, Sacrifice, and Selfless Love”Categories: Minister's Corner
I have a tremendous amount of respect and appreciation for our elders here at the Fulshear Church of Christ! Our elders are doing a great job of shepherding us as we move forward in our faith. They are such great examples in service, sacrifice, and selfless love.
I’m excited about the positive plans they have in store for our spiritual family for 2021 and beyond. I ask you to pray that we will make a BIG impact in our Fulshear community for our Lord. I ask you not only to pray but also follow their example.
Please be an encouragement to our elders by sending them a card of appreciation or communicating your love for them verbally for their service to the Lord and His kingdom. Think about ways you can be creative to show your love and appreciation for their diligence. They truly deserve it!
Let’s display the beautiful qualities of humility and submission, along with the desire to be unified and spiritual, as we serve the Lord under the oversight of our elders with enthusiasm and joy. These qualities are definitely needed to be an active, healthy, vibrant, and growing church.
My plea is for God to keep us…
1. Holy (1 Peter 1:15)
2. Hungry (Matthew 4:4)
3. Humble (Philippians 2:1-11)
God wants us to be successful! Let’s be steadfast, immovable, and moving forward in our work for the Lord!
1The elders who are among you I exhort, I who am a fellow elder and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that will be revealed: 2 Shepherd the flock of God which is among you, serving as overseers, not by compulsion but willingly, not for dishonest gain but eagerly; 3 nor as being lords over those entrusted to you, but being examples to the flock; 4 and when the Chief Shepherd appears, you will receive the crown of glory that does not fade away. (1 Peter 5)
