3 Ways to Serve God by Serving Others
Serve others with love."If I’ve learned anything from my time in Jacó," World Racer Tymon explains, "is a smile goes a long way. Learning the barista’s name at the local coffee shop, hearing their story, just simply loving on Him/Her makes a bigger impact than you might realize."
Serving others with love is the key to reaching a broken and hurting world that does not know Jesus. People are waiting for someone to show up and display the love of Jesus. We need to love others with our actions, not just our words.
Serve others with joy."It wasn’t until I felt the light breeze from the car window washing against my face and through my hair did I realize how overjoyed I was to be in Guatemala." Paula shared about arriving in the first country on her World Race route.
I get to serve locals. I get to share the love of God. I get to live in community with five outstanding ladies. I get the opportunity to wake up in a different country and serve a wide variety of communities during a pandemic."
Serve others with diligence."[W]e are helping around the church by shoveling and bagging dirt to save up for the upcoming rainy season, building doors for the church door frames, and constructing flooring and walls for the upstairs portion of the church." Victoria reflects about her time on the World Race in the mountains of Costa Rica.
"As I sat with God, staring at the stunning valley before my eyes, the verse came to mind about working for man with excellence, as if working for the Lord."
