An Acts-ive Faith (Part 6)

Ministering Daily

Acts 6:1 In those days, as the number of the disciples was multiplying, there arose a complaint by the Hellenistic Jews against the Hebrew Jews that their widows were being overlooked in the daily distribution.

Problems caused by quick growth started to occur in the early church. Some people and their needs were getting overlooked. Specifically, some widows were not receiving their daily distribution. This meant that these widows were to be visited daily — given what they needed for that day. The contact with the needy was constant.

This challenges me with the thought: whose need have I met today? Am I living for myself, just doing whatever I please, or am I actively seeking ways to minister to others?

Another challenge to myself from this verse is: am I daily ministering to the Lord and allowing Him to minister to me? Am I seeing all the ways the Lord is ministering to me? I recognized yesterday that the Lord had used my husband to minister to me in several ways.

My husband and I are in a season where we are taking daily communion. Am I spending enough time in communion with the Lord?

Prayer: Lord, may we all minister to you daily and allow You to minster to us. Help us think of a person to minister to each and every day.

Now, I’m off to email a friend who may need to hear from me.
