Fruit

Fruit. That's a "term" us religious people use to refer to progress or results in ministry.

My ministry team has been teaching at a new rehab facility since late April. This morning, two ladies (plus two children of one of the ladies) were baptized. That was a sweet moment for me, especially because one of the ladies seemed so very desperate and hopeless a mere 4 weeks ago.

Often when I see these women at the altar, I am struck by God's power. I am completely humbled by his use of me. And I am excited (and a little anxious) for these women as they begin a new chapter in their faith journeys.

Fruit is good. It is a blessing.
