Be the Hands and Feet

At One7, we hold a strong belief in the act of serving the community. It’s just a natural overflow of honoring God and loving others more than ourselves. Our ministry would fail if we kept company with just those whom we are the most comfortable around, hung out at the One7 apartments, and played soccer all day long. In our desire, and continuing journey, to be more like Christ, we feel a pressing urge to do anything and everything we can to fulfill the needs of those who are lost and hurting.

photo 1-3In the recent months, God has been blessing One7 with donations of food almost every day. Instead of keeping it all to ourselves, we believe God is leading us into the community, to other apartment complexes in the area, and directing us to give it away. We know the more we share with others, the more God will continue to bless us.

Last week, we sent a group over to some apartments that house many of our One7 kids and their families. They stopped by a local market and picked up packs of chicken, bags of rice, and plenty of beans. We added all of that to the donations we had already received. The families began to pour out of their apartments when they realized we had arrived.

photo 3-3We loaded the food onto the back of our trailer and served it right from there. For some, the meal we provide throughout the week at One7, might be the only one they eat for an entire day. It’s such a privilege and blessing for us when we get the opportunity to deliver food directly to where they live.

Romans 12:10 says “Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.” There is nothing more fulfilling than serving others. When the faces of those whom are hurting light up in a brilliant smile, it warms the heart in ways that the things of this world are incapable of accomplishing. It’s all about being the hands and feet of Jesus.

We dont stop at presenting items that can be seen with the eyes like food, clothing, and shelter. We also provide the hope that flows from a loving and glorious Savior. We share the Gospel, and the story of how God sent His only Son to endure the brutality of being crucified on a tree.

It’s this message of eternal hope in Jesus that will fill them more than food or material possessions ever could.

Have a blessed day.

    The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five foot drop,
    just so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad
    is now broken and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I
    had to share it with someone!

    Very good blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring
    writers? I’m hoping to start my own site soon but I’m a little lost on everything.
    Would you advise starting with a free platform like WordPress or
    go for a paid option? There are so many choices out there that I’m
    totally overwhelmed .. Any recommendations? Appreciate it!

    First off I would like to say excellent blog!
    I had a quick question which I’d like to ask if you don’t mind.
    I was curious to know how you center yourself
    and clear your head prior to writing. I have had difficulty clearing my
    mind in getting my ideas out there. I do enjoy writing however it just seems like the first 10 to 15 minutes tend to
    be lost simply just trying to figure out how to begin. Any recommendations or tips?
    Appreciate it!

    Hmm it appears like your site ate my first comment
    (it was super long) so I guess I’ll just sum it up what I had written and say,
    I’m thoroughly enjoying your blog. I as well am an aspiring blog blogger
    but I’m still new to the whole thing. Do you have any tips for novice blog writers?
