Serving Jesus

In 3 John, verse 6, John said, “These brothers told the church (group of believers) about the love you have. Please help them to continue their trip. Help them in a way that will please God.” That verse reminds me of a mission trip I took with a group of students. We had many churches and places we wanted to visit. But one day we had no plans. We asked God to show us what He wanted us to do that day.
Finally we saw some people we had met at a church service. They brought their friends to a park, and we all played soccer. As the game continued, other people came and brought food, water and umbrellas for shade. We were able to share with these people about Jesus and His plan of salvation. All the people helped us as we continued on our trip. And these ties were the foundation for future trips to that same area.
Maybe you will serve Jesus by going on a mission trip someday. But if not, you can still serve by encouraging missionaries with your gifts, cards and prayers.
