It almost felt like a dream. I was reclined back in my seat taking a nap in a parking lot. A few hours prior I woke up at 3:30am attempting to jump start the day. Around 5:00am my to do list had been hijacked by a nap.
What happened at 6am that felt like a dream?
My nap was sweetly interrupted by an older gentlemen accompanied by a crowd with bags in their hands. His voice rung out, “Good morning, would you like some breakfast?” I shook my head “no.”
I could not fall back asleep because I realized there were several cars and trucks around me with napping cargo. The group went to each car and passed out what must have been a hearty breakfast.
I was so moved by the kindness that I quickly caught up to them and asked if they were a ministry. He responded, “Yes, First Baptist Church South Hill”
As I drove off my heart was filled with praise. I understood in that moment what Matthew 5:14-16 means.
There were no strings attached no agenda. I just felt the joy of witnessing a pure good deed.
It inspired me and motivated me to believe nothing that I do for Christ is in vain.
Body of Christ we were saved not by but for good works. Let Ephesians 2:10 resonate today!
Hallelujah! Praise Yahweh!
They were shining bright light high beams 🙂
Matthew 5:14 “You are the light of the world. A city situated on a hill cannot be hidden. 15. No one lights a lamp and puts it under a basket, but rather on a lampstand, and it gives light for all who are in the house. 16. In the same way, let your light shine before men, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father In heaven.
Ephesians 2:10 For we are His creation, created in Christ Jesus for good work, which God prepared ahead of time so that we should walk in them.
