Serve One Another by Avine Macugay

It was a great day to fellowship the sun was out and the weather just right.  God’s word was clearly defined during our picnic day, for love, indeed was in the air. There was so much fun to be had, from feasting on the food, to the baseball game played by all ages, to the laughter shared by all. It was a wonderful sight to see people lending a hand to one another–women prepping for the meal, men putting up the tents and setting up tables and grilling on the barbeque, children playing and goofing around, simply being kids. 

In Galatians 5:13, it declares, “For you were called to freedom, brethren; only do not turn your freedom into an opportunity for the flesh, but through love, serve one another.”

Our church family exemplified Christ’s actions in serving one another at the picnic. Our Lord served as an example by living among us, humbling Himself;  He served like a slave would, rather than to be served like a king should.  It was wonderful to bear witness to the many that emulated Jesus’ actions through their act of service, whether it was in sharing music, leading a prayer and fellowshipping with others.

A simple proof of a happy/healthy church family is when our actions speak on our behalf, serving as evidence of our attempts and desire to walk closely with our Savior, Jesus Christ, as we show love, humility, in how we serve and take care of one another.

Coming together as a choir is not as easy as gathering a family together. But I can assure you that each time we practice, everyone’s voice just comes in as “one”. These are the people of God who are thirsty not only to serve or to sing but also excited to go out there and spread the gospel of Jesus. Each member has a song in their hearts and expressed the love of Christ through music.

We started our outreach during the 2011 Christmas season, and boy what a great time to get started. We’ve seen people who are hungry for the love others and needed the love of Jesus in their lives. We have reached out to families, friends and elderly who have truly appreciated the music of Christmas. The carols we sung reminded me that Christmas is not only about gifts, carols, but it’s all about the love of God for us.
To follow that, we decided to  keep going  and so we did. We did an outreach this past Easter. Little did we know that the people we visited during the holidays were anxious to hear us back. Hallelujah!
We have visited the Rehabilitation Center in Daly City; Aegis in South San Francisco and Linda Mar facility for the elderly in Pacifica. I’ve never seen so much joy on their faces and how excited they were to hear us and see us. Making conversations with them was so precious to them and to us.
I have had experiences in singing in church, at home, during the fellowship, but the experience in coming together as a choir, as a team reaching out outside our comfort zone is “Priceless”. Should we do it again? That is the wrong question. When do we do it again? We can’t wait for the next one!
