Serve Others

Missionaries are some of the most selfless people in the world. Many leave their comfort zone, their homes, and families to serve God and others. Missionaries give selflessly of themselves.

In the Wings

As the world jockeys for position at center stage, Christ followers are answering the call to serve in the wings of life. Jesus said, “Whoever wants to be my disciple must deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me” (Mark 8:34 NIV).

Minister

The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others.

When There’s No Extra Present

Sometimes the best kind of selflessness is unplanned. We often define selflessness by scheduling time to teach a Bible study, volunteer, or help someone in need.

The Eyes to See

The hearts of missionaries in full passion is a beautiful thing to behold. In my time in the Middle East, I had the opportunity to encounter the beauty of God’s children loving the nations, their neighbors, and embracing God’s vision for the world.

When Praising is Perilous

This Easter, while many of us donned new dresses and enjoyed hearty meals with our families, many believers around the world risked their lives in order to gather and celebrate their risen Savior. One such believer is Julia*.

Pause to Celebrate

Sometimes I miss my childhood days when everything seemed to stop for the summer.

For most working adults, jobs, chores, and responsibilities go on straight through summer with little to no change of pace.

Sigh.

Wrap It Up!

Steeped in over 180 years of missional history, Fayetteville First Baptist exemplifies The Great Commission! With nearly 10 active groups in place, Women on Mission® remains vital in answering the call of Jesus to go and make disciples (Matthew 28:19).

Emphasize the Association

I’m thankful to be a part of a church that values our local Baptist association. Keeping the ministries, resources, and needs of the association in front of the church assists the church in continuing to pray for and be a part of the ministries of the association.

Surrender

The first step to selflessness is to surrender your life to Jesus and become one of His disciples. Selflessness requires the stopping, quitting, halting of anything and everything that might impede our fellowship with God.
