God does his work of saving grace in our lives for a purpose—that we might serve him and others. Jesus is the great example of a servant, who gave his life so others might live. He willingly turned his back on his rightful privileges as God, to become a human being, to submit to death upon a cross, so as to serve us. He gave his life as a ransom to set us free for a life of service. Mark 10:45 Philippians 2:6-11
People say that it’s more blessed to give than to receive and this is so true. We’ve been created in God’s image, and we can be re-created in the likeness of Jesus, to give our lives in the service of God and others. This is what life is really all about—giving our lives to God to make a difference for eternity. Romans 8:28-29
At Stromlo we don’t employ pastors to do the work of ministry. We believe that God calls us all to be ministers = servants, and the pastors are here to coach us along the way. God has gifted us all to play our part in the body. The task is to see what needs doing and how we might be able to contribute. Ephesians 4:11-13
