"Let a man regard us in this manner, as servants of Christ and stewards of the mysteries of God" (I Corinthians 4:1)
In church this morning, we were treated to a special speaker. Our friend and neighbor John Gray shared his work with us as a Gideon. For anyone not familiar with the Gideons, all one needs to do is check the nightstand at the next hotel where a Gideon Bible will be found. Over two billion of these Bibles (including millions of New Testaments distributed throughout the world at schools, events, and within the military) are available to anyone, anywhere at no cost.
And the Gideons? Just regular guys with regular families...called to serve and answering that call to be "stewards of the mysteries of God".
We are all called--but do we answer? Who are the daily servants of Christ? How is one a steward of the mysteries of God?
Just look around...these good folks are everywhere.
And you're probably one of them, too.
Every time we do something for our family, our neighbors, or our friends--no matter how small the deed--and do it in stewardship to God, as a servant of Christ, we are putting into practice the call. No matter what the deed, we are following the instruction of our Lord and increasing the Kingdom of God on earth.
Peace be with you.
