growth

I was reading this morning in Acts 6 where the 7 Deacons were chosen.  After the passage about the need and the role these men would play, verse 7 says, “so the preaching about God flourished, the number of the disciples in Jerusalem multiplied greatly, and a large group of priests became obedient to the faith.”  That is growth.  As the people of God served the Lord b His appointment, His Kingdom grew.  It works the same way today.  As each child of God serves Him faithfully, His Kingdom expands.

Every believer can be a part of God doing His work, as we each do our part.  God does not have to use us, but He has chosen to.  It is His desire that we are a part of His Kingdom’s expansion.  Each of us was created and gifted to serve our King.  Only you can do what God calls you to do.  No one else is made and equipped in the same way you are.  What a unique opportunity each of us has to serve Jesus.  We can be a part of His Kingdom’s expansion, as we are faithful to Him.
