Few Burdens are Heavy When Everybody Lifts
By: Lee Larsen
For Christians, our strength comes from the Lord. When we truly place our complete trust in Him, He promises to always watch over us. He guides us around life's obstacles and when we fail, as we all do at times, He's there to carry us through it. We can find comfort and peace in this truth.
An important part of the support that God provides to us is "His body", the church, made up of the family of believers. God provides us with physical, emotional and spiritual support through church. As "the body" works together, insurmountable challenges are overcome and amazing things are accomplished in God's glory.
One great way that you can grow and strengthen "the body" of Christ is through Planned Acts of Christian Kindness® (P.A.C.K.®) events. These outreach events bring fellow believers together to go out into their community and share God's love by giving away simple gifts or doing free acts of service. Through this method, you can give people a taste of what God's love and grace is like: freely given and cannot be bought or earned. P.A.C.K.® makes it easy for anyone to share the love of Christ. The relationships that you develop will begin to lift your burdens in both your personal life and your church body.
