Service

The word, deacon, means a role in the church, generally associated with various services among theological and denominational traditions. It is derived from the Lain word, Diakonia meaning "service."

The churches functions as servants of both God and to his neighbors. The Lord calls His disciples to “Love each other as I have loved you.” (John 15:12) Apostle Paul exhorts the church, “As we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers” (Galatians 6:10)

The Christian community also serves the world around us, not only in word, but also in deeds that go with those words. God did not just speak — he also took action. Actions can demonstrate the love of God working in our hearts, as we help the poor, as we offer comfort to the discouraged, and serve the needs of the church and believers alike.

In this day of history, Father God has loved us. You foreknew us. You have chosen us. You have justified us. You will lead us to the ultimate place of glory.
