Daily Fountain 2017 - The Help Ministry







Thursday March 23

Bible Reading:     Luke 8: 1 - 3

Topic:         The Help Ministry

Today, Luke highlights the Ministry of the Women who used their resources to care for Jesus and His Disciples: Mary Magdalene, Joanna, Suzanna and many others whose names were not mentioned.

They were not alone.

Acts 9: 36 - 42 also records the wonderful ministry of Dorcas who cared for widows and other needy people.

The Scripture also records numerous examples of others who used their resources to support godly ventures and receive special blessings.

The generosity of Abraham to the Angels of God in Gen. 18: 1 - 14, fast tracked the fulfillment of the promised child Isaac (Gen. 21: 1-3)

The hospitality of the Shunammite woman to Prophet Elisha (2 Kings 4: 8-17) resulted in her having a son.

The faith and charitable disposition of the widow of Zarephath towards Prophet Elijah led to her having more than enough because she never lacked food on  her table throughout the period of famine (1 Kings 17: 13-17)

Beloved what is your contribution or support to the on-going work of God in your Church, family or Community?

Do you seek your Priest's welfare?

Determine to be involved in the Ministry of Help and you would be glad you did.

Prayer:
Father help me to always remember Thy Words as said in Gal. 6: 9 - "let us not become weary in doing good for at the proper time we will reap a harvest if we do not give up", Amen.

Memory verse:   Luke 8: 2 - 3
"And certain women ............ which ministered unto Him of their substance"
