Bearing Fruit

 

Author: Yerusha Bunag

 

Read Titus 3:14

Our people must learn to devote themselves to doing what is good, in order that they may provide for daily necessities and not live unproductive lives.

One of the things I was most grateful for in 2020 was the opportunity that God gave me to lead Idlewild’s effort to provide relief to our community struggling with the pandemic. Through our Give Help, Get Help platform, I connected with hundreds of incredible Idlewild volunteers and to hundreds of hurting families in our community.

Idlewild Church, you have strengthened my faith through your willingness to serve Jesus and bring hope to the least and the lost. I witnessed volunteers, new and old believers, blossom and grow in their faith as they were meeting the needs of others.

On one occasion, after helping two different families with furniture and food, I had a conversation with a volunteer about how in-sync with the Spirit we felt while out serving “on our mission.” We forgot about ourselves and our issues during that time and became focused on meeting others’ physical and spiritual needs. It was “blessed self-forgetfulness.”

That is one of the reasons that, when I watched a short video based on Titus 3:14 by Dr. Daniel Davey, it struck me in such a meaningful way. Idlewild Church, you have been an example of believers living productive and fruitful lives as you live out the Gospel producing works of godliness.

Are you searching for ways to strengthen your faith? Do you desire to live a productive life-bearing Gospel fruit? Idlewild is a church committed to helping you. Give your time and giftedness to serving the Lord here in the Missions Department or any other ministry, and you will be amazed at the return you will receive – deeds that have eternal value!
