From the Board of Stewardship
“When He rose from prayer and went back to the disciples, He found them asleep, exhausted from sorrow. ‘Why are you sleeping?’ He asked them” (Luke 22:45-46). Jesus was exhausted too. After all, He was human. He got hungry and tired, just as His disciples did. We are prone to shake our heads at those lazy, disloyal disciples, but how often do we say we’re too tired to serve, too poor to give, too inadequate to help? Like the disciples who were transformed on Pentecost, we have received the Holy Spirit Who equips, enables, and energizes us to be God’s stewards. Prayer: Our gracious Heavenly Father, You have given us the message and the power to proclaim the Gospel. Give us joy and courage in our task. Forgive us when we fail our responsibility. Thank You for Your Son Who has lived the perfect life of stewardship for us. Through Him we ask these things. Amen.
All are invited to join us for Easter Breakfast from 8:00am to 9:00am in the Family Life Center. Hope to see you there!
