Lead Serve Love is a blog which features inspirational stories about the work of individual Christians and Christian ministries transforming the community for the greater glory of God. Its purpose is to highlight how God has touched and changed lives through His servant people and outreach ministries, all so that His Kingdom may come to be on Earth as it is in Heaven.
Lead boldly. Serve every day. Love all the time! is simply another way to say go forth and be like Jesus. Christ followers believe that reaching out to the community where we live, work and play is a way of life. Loving people the way Jesus loves people means serving them and leading them to the One who can meet all their needs. Here you will find stories about Believers doing just that.
I am a sinner
I am a depraved, morally bankrupt wretched sinner through and through. I’ve attended church sporadically most of my life, haven’t spent a minute in seminary and only recently gave the Bible more than a cursory review. I’ve attended exactly one theology class and I dropped out of that.
However, in spite of my moral infidelity, I’ve come to be filled with the Holy Spirit. I’ve learned my salvation isn’t the result of what I do, but rather what Jesus has done on my behalf. I didn’t find the Holy Spirit, He found me. And in our relationship I have invited Him to change me, to use me for His purpose, to conquer my will with His own. Praise the Lord, for even an unworthy, chronic sinner like me can experience and give testimony to His glory!

I really like sermons that are based on action stories in the Bible, stories that seem improbable and miraculous but which have a deeper meaning waiting to be revealed. Recently I enjoyed such a sermon. It was about the crossing of … Continue reading
One of the things that perplexes me when I read the Bible is I often don’t know what to take literally or simply as an illustrative parable. Just recently while reading Luke I pondered the story of the rich ruler … Continue reading
Much of my Bible reading leads to self-examination, a time to consider the ways of my youth, make a list of my transgressions so that I might go about righting them, and make decisions about how I’m going to … Continue reading
