Well this past Sunday I was ordained as a Deacon at my church. It was a very proud day for me as I now have a greater responsibility for serving the Lord. This is not a position I consider prestigious or worthy of praise. It is a position of service to not only the church but our pastor.
How many of you guys are Deacons at your church? I'm just curious. How has the experience been for you?
At the end of the ordination service, we did what is called "laying on of hands". Talk about a powerful experience. Very touching and emotional.
I am happy I serve the one and only Lord of Lords, Jesus Christ!
...and on that day when my strength is failing, the end draws near and my times has come, still my soul will sing Your praise unending, ten thousand years and then forevermore!
