Feeding the Homeless
Faith in Action
You hear sermon after sermon about being a disciple of Yeshua,
yet it never seems to hit home. Then you hear “Go buy someone a sandwich!” Nothing out of the ordinary, but it seems to stick with you.
You gather with your brothers in Messiah (Christ), and cook all the time–for church fundraisers; for youth groups, but what about those outside the walls of the synagogue, church, etc.? What about the poor, the widows, the orphans?
Then it hits you! The world is so full of in reach that it never looks for opportunities to reach out. Sure it’s talked about, but as James states: “What good is it, dear brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but don’t show it by your actions? Can that kind of faith save anyone?
Suppose you see a brother or sister who has no food or clothing, and you say, ‘Good-bye and have a good day; stay warm and eat well—but then you don’t give that person any food or clothing. What good does that do? So you see, faith by itself isn’t enough. Unless it produces good deeds, it is dead and useless.’” (James 2:14-17 NLT)
As Rabbi has stated time and time again, “People will never care how much you know until they know how much you care.” We are called to be the hands and feet of Yeshua, not just a mouthpiece, and if we don’t ever let them know how much we care, how will we ever tell them about the One we know? We must serve!
We at Beth Yeshua will serve! God loves a cheerful giver. We will serve the homeless! Praise the Lord! Be Shem Yeshua Ha Mashiach!
We welcome our young people who are interested in serving. High school students, 9th grade and above, are preferable with parental supervision.
Beth Yeshua started feeding the homeless beginning January 26, 2020.
We have been assigned the last Sunday in each month, January through December. For the remainder of this year, Tommy Campbell will be training volunteers. We will fill in when there is a shortage. The location is Christ Episcopal Church, located at 582 Walnut Street in Macon.
More details will follow. Stay abreast of updates by bookmarking this page.
