“For the ministry of this service is not only fully supplying the needs of the saints, but is also overflowing through many thanksgivings to God.  Because of the proof given by this ministry, they will glorify God for your obedience to your confession of the gospel of Christ and for the liberality of your contribution to them and to all” (2 Cotinthians 9:12-13)

There is one fellowship with Christ, the communion of saints.  The Lord is teaching us to work together for good through love.  This is a great mystery, but it is the reality we profess each time the creed is spoken.  Come then into the fellowship and work alongside others in the vinyard, doing what the Lord gives you to do.  Through Him, we are all made part of the work He is accomplishing.

Lord, help me learn how to do my part knowing that in You I will become what You are making me to be.  Guide me in Your goodness to not be so concerned with what is accomplished, but to rejoice that I am a part of Your work.  Guide me to live out the Gospel You have spoken knowing that Your Word never comes back void.  Lead me in the way of righteousness.

Lord Jesus, You have come that we may have life and have it abundantly.  Lead me, O Lord, in the way of truth that I may now and always be guided by the truth You have revealed once for all.  In You is all hope and glory.  Apart from You, all is vanity.  Teach me these simple things that I would rejoice in all the good gifts You give and live into the life to which You have called me.  Amen.
