In this week's episode, join co-hosts Anna and Jordan as they discuss what serving in the church looks like for them. We chat through our own roles, attitudes to serving, generosity and gifting.
1 Thessalonians 5:11:
"Therefore encourage each other and build each other up"
1 Peter 4:8-11:
"Above all, love each other deeply,because love covers over a multitude of sins.9 Offer hospitalityto one another without grumbling.10 Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others,as faithfulstewards of God’s grace in its various forms.11 If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God.If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides,so that in all things God may be praisedthrough Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen."
2 Corinthians 9:6:
"6 Remember this: Whoever sows sparingly will also reap sparingly, and whoever sows generously will also reap generously."
"Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship"
"41 Then he sat down opposite the offering box, and watched the crowd putting coins into it. Many rich people were throwing in large amounts. 42 And a poor widow came and put in two small copper coins, worth less than a penny. 43 He called his disciples and said to them, “I tell you the truth, this poor widow has put more into the offering box than all the others. 44 For they all gave out of their wealth. But she, out of her poverty, put in what she had to live on, everything she had.”
