I am studying Acts 6 in which the Hellenistic Widows were being ignored in the daily serving of meals. I am struck by the opportunity to reach out to those of all different culture background, and yet to do this we need an army of servants so that the leaders may devote themselves to the ministry of prayer and the word. Every believer has gifts that are integral to the body! The servants must be respectable and led by the spirit. When it goes well by God's grace look what can happen!
Acts 6:7 (NASB95)
7 The word of God kept on spreading; and the number of the disciples continued to increase greatly in Jerusalem, and a great many of the priests were becoming obedient to the faith.
