Last night I shared a short message with our junior high and high school volunteers. Here is a brief look at those thoughts:
The big picture idea was that God often allows unexpected things to show up in our ministry path…and these things usually provide a couple of opportunities.
1. The story of the good Samaritan reminds us that people will show up in on our path and provide unexpected opportunities for MINISTRY.
2. The story of the Israelites and the Red Sea reminds us that obstacles will show up in our path and provide unexpected opportunities for the MIRACULOUS.
3. Both scenarios have this in common: THE OUTCOME IS DETERMINED BY MY WILLINGNESS TO TAKE ACTION.
As you journey along your ministry path this year, my hope and prayer for you is the same as it is for the men and women on my team: That when God puts an unexpected opportunity to minister or an unexpected obstacle in your path…you would be willing to take action and see what God does through you!
