Serving Others

Finding the Solution in Service

Gary Wilkerson

Sometimes the solution to our problems is a person who serves. That probably doesn’t sound like a fix, does it? Our answers are usually “Let’s have a three week prayer and fasting meeting. Set up a series of revival meetings! Why don’t we send someone to Bible college?”

The apostles response to the early church's problems of racism, favoritism, classism, conflict over people’s pasts was “Let’s find some people who really love to serve.” 

Romans 15:1-2

We who are strong have an obligation to bear with the failings of the weak, and not to please ourselves. Let each of us please his neighbor for his good, to build him up.
