Outward Action

Jesus regularly pulled away so he could practice silence and solitude as a pre-condition for serving others. Not only did Jesus prepare for ministry through solitude, but he also really engaged in group-communal spiritual formation with his disciples. There is a danger when we take on the role of the servant without understanding our identity in Christ, as men and women deeply loved by God. We need to be deeply rooted in Christ, practicing the means of grace, so that we can love and serve others as Christ did.


How are you preparing yourself for ministry?

Are you feeling exhausted and burned out? Find time to come to Jesus and plug in to the abundance of God’s love for us so that you can serve out of that love.

How is God astonishing you anew with his love and his grace?
