Sharing with you a timely devotional from Dr. David Jeremiah:
Perhaps you have established patterns of daily prayer and Bible study, and you’re part of a good church. Yet you feel there’s something missing from your Christian experience. During the weekends of March, let’s spring forward with four additional opportunities, beginning with servanthood.
Kentucky pastor Jerrell White, who pastored for more than sixty years, passed away at age eighty, one month after preaching his last sermon and baptizing four new believers. His granddaughter said, “He modeled servanthood. I went with him many times to nursing homes or to visit people in the church. I saw the ways he and my grandma intentionally gave and visited and served and loved. He was always so encouraging. He modeled to us what a genuine Christian looked like. He studied God’s Word and he lived it out.”
This March, ask yourself if you model servanthood. How can you better live out God’s Word? Developing the servanthood habit may be as simple as letting a traveler exit the plane before you or picking up a piece of litter thrown onto a neighbor’s lawn. Often it’s the small things that enable us to spring forward.
We are all called in some way to be servants for the glory of God! What a wonderful opportunity for us to partake in, not just during this Easter season, but every day. There are so many ways to serve each other … to serve our family, our community, our church. We don’t really have to look far or too hard to see the opportunities.
Jesus was the ultimate in leadership and servanthood! He served as the sacrificial lamb for us. With his death on the cross, we began to really live … our sins were forgiven! Living is giving … let’s strive to live and love like Jesus!
We see the servant’s heart running through the comments we’ve received lately from our CTW family. We wanted to share with everyone. Jesus is smiling!
Thank you CTW for the beautiful video. Thank you for what you do. The crosses are simple life changing gifts to so many. I also make crosses and give them away. It is my ministry to make unique crosses to brighten the lives of others. Your CTW crosses are such a blessing with the message attached. I love passing them out. God bless you for your cross ministry.

In response to the post ‘Snowstorms and Angels’, this comment:
What a wonderful example of the anticipation of Jesus, like a snowstorm. I absolutely loved it. I could sense the anxiety in the angels as they waited…such a powerful message! Thank you so much for that! I needed to hear that tonight, as my anxiety was taking over. Now, after reading this, I am quite at peace. Praise God for His wonderful gift of Salvation through Jesus. And may God continue to bless you ALL at Cross The World!

A shout out to you and your service to our Lord Jesus. It was my brother that told me about your crosses. I will be ministering to the homeless, with a cross in my hand to pass them out, with the Holy Spirit guiding me. I am only 3 years in my walk so I’m stepping out in faith and know that God will prevail, because He’s such a loving and good God. So, bless each and every one of you for touching lives in the name of Jesus.

The crosses arrived today and I cannot thank you enough for shipping them so quickly! Am so thankful we have them in time in for Ash Wednesday. Please know how very much we appreciate your wonderful volunteers, and the time and attention you pay to each order. We see God’s hand in all you do. The crosses are so beautiful, as are the smiles, and yes, sometimes the tears, they bring to those who needed a reminder of God’s love at just the right time.

Thanks so much for your ministry. You have helped us share the gospel in so many ways over the past few years. I received my first cross from a friend in IN and have been passing them out since! This order is being delivered to a nursing and rehab facility at Easter. God richly bless you all!
