Message from Shayne Shaffer, Front House Coordinator | One Bistro
I read a devotional recently that has stuck with me and I am compelled to share it with you. Mainly because I know so many of us are on the fence about service and not sure of where we are supposed to be sharing our time and talents with others. My advice is to (forgive me for quoting the Nike ads) just do it. Try a few things. See where your heart thrills and God speaks to your soul. Sometimes we just need to get out of our comfortable life and see what God can do through us...
"If you’re waiting on God — do what waiters do: serve.
Break free of your comfort zone and do something, touch someone, give something, help someone, pray for someone, serve someone, #betheGIFT for someone. You can't be a world changer until you *serve. * In serving, you are served a feast of what you’re longing for. Because the One who loves you steadfastly, stood fast at the cross for you, so now stand fast for Him.
Each of you should use whatever gift he has received to serve others, faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms... Be generous with the different things God gave you, passing them around so all get in on it: if words, let it be God’s words; if help, let it be God’s hearty help." 1Peter4:10 NIV, MSG. "

Of course, I will invite you to serve with us here at One Bistro. We have many opportunities to serve here. All are welcome.
