"You are the light of the world.  In the same way, let your light shine before others,so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father in Heaven."- Matthew 5:14,16


Walking and Talking for the Hands of Christ


 What do you think? A man had two sons. And he went to the first and said, ‘Son, go and work in the vineyard today.’ 29 And he answered, ‘I will not,’ but afterward he changed his mind and went. 30 And he went to the other son and said the same. And he answered, ‘I go, sir,’ but did not go. 31 Which of the two did the will of his father?” They said, “The first.” Jesus said to them, “Truly, I say to you, the tax collectors and the prostitutes go into the kingdom of God before you. [Matthew 21:28-31]


       This is a story about talking the talk and walking the walk, lip service and labor. Neither of the boys got it right the first time. One of them walked and the other talked, but they both scored only 50%. Surely, we can do better than that!

       Each time we sing a hymn or say a prayer in our worship together, we are giving voice to our loyalty to God in Christ. We are saying “yes!” to God’s instruction to worship him as Lord of our lives by claiming Jesus as our savior. We are truly talking the talk of our Christian community of faith.

       Each time we reach out to those in need, we are walking the walk of the gospel. Jesus was quick to respond to the hungry, the sick, the despondent. His compassion was unflagging when confronted with the misery of human need. We are daily called to respond to those same needs by walking the walk for his glory.

       The Hands of Christ Ministry is the perfect opportunity to score 100% on Jesus’ test of loyalty to God. By its very name, it proclaims our determination to hold up Christ as the most important reality in our lives, and by its goal of helping others, it gives evidence we know what was important to Jesus. The Hands of Christ Ministry passes the test of talking the talk and walking the walk.

       Everyone in our congregation has some role to play as we get ready for distribution day. We have checks to write, clothes and supplies to buy, and jobs to volunteer for. I hope we will score 100% participation on our 100% ministry.
