I have the privilege this week of attending the ReachGlobal Europe Conference in Slovenia.
Early in the week we had a slide show with pictures of ministry sent in from all over Europe. One thing that stood out to me was how many pictures were nothing more than a group of people gathered in a living room or a coffee shop. Yes there were pictures of schools and churches and camps, but most of the pictures were merely people in life together.
This should not be surprising. Ministry is about people, and people are not projects. If we truly care about those around us we are naturally going to spend time with them. This is what we do.
Earlier in the week we talked about Jesus washing His disciples’ feet during the last supper. He did this to show them the extent of His love for them. The most influential ministry workers I have ever met are not those with the best programs or the most charismatic personalities or the greatest ability to preach or those who have the most meetings, they are the ones who love others the most.
This is who we are. This is what we do. We are ReachGlobal Europe, and we love others as Christ loves us.
