Whether we are nine or ninety-nine, we were created to serve God. The Bible puts it this way: “It is God himself who made us what we are and given us new lives from Christ Jesus; and long ages ago he planned that we should spend these lives in helping others” (Ephesians 2:10, Living Bible Translation).
Not only are we called to serve others in God’s name, we need to encourage our children to do the same. We need to teach our children that God put them here to make a contribution, not just take up space watching TV or playing video games. It is only in giving our lives away that we find out what life’s all about.
What will be your contribution? What will be your children’s contribution? How will we give back? How will we use our God-given talents? Will we use them just to benefit ourselves or will we use them to help others?
Everything in our society teaches us to use our talents for ourselves – to make a lot of money, retire, be comfortable and die. That’s the dream. But deep down inside we know we were made for more than that. We know instinctively that there is a bigger purpose in life.
We invite you to make a difference with us. You can support our ministry at Trinity Church. You can join us in serving our city. Or you can contribute to our global efforts to make disciples of Jesus Christ in the nations and solve the pressing challenges in our world today. We need you. We need your ideas, your talents, and your resources. Let’s change the world together.
