God hath set some in the church . . . helps

By A.B. Simpson

      In the Apostle's lists of officers in the church, the helps are mentioned before the governments, By the ministry of prayer, by the ministry of giving, by the ministry of encouragement, by the shining face and mute pressure of the hand and a little word of cheer, and by the countless ways in which we can help-or at least can keep from hindering-we can all still find the footprints of Aquila and Priscilla, if we want to follow them. It is a valuable gift to be able to rejoice in another's work and pour our lives, like affluent streams, into great rivers. But God knows the source of every drop, and in the greater day of recompense many of the helps shall have the chief reward. Are you helping? Are you helping your pastor, your brother, your husband, your mother, your father, your fellow worker? And when the harvest comes shall not he that soweth and he that reapeth rejoice together? You can help by holy prayer, Helpful love and joyful song, Oh, the burdens you may bear, Oh, the sorrows you may share, Oh, the crowns you yet may wear, If you help along.
