Now, I've been asked to work for a rescue mission using my public relation and photojournalism back ground. I am so excited to work for God and God's peoples. The truth is I'm the one who is blessed. God has been speaking to me and preparing my heart for my new job.
After watching a webinar to assist donor relations for rescue missions, one of the speakers shared this verse:
I am not commanding you, but I want to test the sincerity of your love by comparing it with the earnestness of others. For you know the grace of our Lord Jesus Christ, that though he was rich, yet for your sake he became poor, so that you through his poverty might become rich. (2 Corinthians 8:8, 9 NIV)
This verse really touched me because I had randomly read Romans 12 this same day. While the whole chapter spoke to me, Romans 12:9-13 reflected the same idea as 2 Corinthians 8:8-9.
Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves. Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord. Be joyful in hope, patient in affliction, faithful in prayer. Share with the Lord’s people who are in need. Practice hospitality. (Romans 12:9-13 NIV)
My God continue to work and prepare me for this new journey.
