Serving Jesus

Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. My friend Lynn broke her neck in a tragic auto accident when she was in her late 50s. But God blessed her with a team of volunteers from several churches.  Various women would come each morning to get Lynn ready to sit up in her wheelchair. Lynn keeps a planner open on her dresser and her helpers write down the days they can assist. One day, Lynn’s husband noticed that one helper hadn’t written down “Work for Lynn,” or “Here’s my hours.” No, instead she wrote, “Serve Lynn.” Lynn was the happy recipient of people’s heartfelt service to Christ. Such service blessed not only her, but the many women who enjoyed practicing Christianity with its sleeves rolled up. What an example!  So whatever work you are doing today, consider it your service to God. It makes for a much higher calling.
