Devotions

The Church Emergency Center

Have you considered all the emergency needs and care that is tended to within the church body?  People arrive to the church gatherings with many normal human conditions like lonliness, fear, pride, loss, financial struggle, and many other concerns.  Men, women and children deal with the sin consequences of everyday life.  The church body does care about the physical, emotional and spiritual needs of a human.  Jesus, himself, healed the mental and physical illnesses.
   Some congregations will  provide a "parish nurse" who can take blood pressure checks and answer or guide in some of those medical questions.  Historically, Christians have been leaders in building hospitals.  You probably have heard of hospitals with a connection to the Methodist, Lutheran or Catholic Churches.   Did you know that the founder of the Hospice Programs was a Christian doctor named Dame Cicely Saunders?  She also was a social worker and writer.  
   The point is that "healing" in various ways, is a big part of the church being our emergency center.  Some weeks the human urgency care is a heavier load.  And other times we might even find ourselves positioned to be the "emergency care-giver" to another human in need.  
  Which area do you feel "called" to serve in the Church body emergency center?  Are you the one who helps more with physical needs?   Maybe your calling is comforting the mentally distressed!   Have you ever considered ALL the urgency of needs in a group of even 10?  The good news is that God lines up our pathways to be in the right place at the right time so we accomplish His purpose.  So, this means you can handle that task before you.   Be faithful, sure-footed, and trust in the timing of God using you to be that emergency care provider!   Remember to praise Him when your urgent need was brought to a peaceful solution, due to others working in God's name!
 Thank you Lord Jesus for paving out pathways, so goodness and blessings are received.  Amen.

Prayer

We give thanks unto You, O God, because we can approach Your throne, at any time, with freedom and confidence! Father, we thank you that we are Your workmanship and our identity is found in You. We are grateful that we were chosen before the foundation of the world, that you adopted us, that you love us, and that we belong to You. When we are tempted to worry about what others think or we are afraid of how others see us, God remind us that You have not given us a spirit of fear, but of power, love, and a sound mind. We are no longer condemned; we are forgiven. We are delivered. We are healed. We are set free. We are overcomers by the Blood of the Lamb! We are Your sons and Your daughters. Hallelujah! We are victorious. In Jesus' name, Amen.   (By T.Morrison)
