It Matters

Today I had lunch with a member of our church who has a heart for helping hurting people. She is starting a ministry in our church called Bridge 68, and it's all about Justice; doing our part to help make our city (Kansas City) and our world a better place one person at a time.

What Jesus did on the cross matters, big time. Jesus didn't just get beaten, and then crucified; Jesus rose from the dead and then gave us the Holy Spirit to empower us to do good works. Now of course good works don't save us, they don't get us in God's good graces, or anything like that ... we have simply been empowered to do good through the power of the risen Christ.

I hope and pray that each and everyday we will engage in doing good to others even in small ways.
