Preaching Good News to the Elderly

The last time I gave a Bible message was during Valentine’s Day of Compassion in 2017, when I was a college senior. We visited an elderly home to share a bit of God’s love with the residents, and I had the added privilege to speak on behalf of our college group.

Recently, an opportunity came up for any volunteers on the staff team to join our Elderly Care Ministry and to preach the worship service message. I signed up to share God’s Word. I want to do my part in living out 2 Timothy 2:15,

15 Do your best to present yourself to God as one approved, a worker who has no need to be ashamed, rightly handling the word of truth. 

This Sunday, I’m planning to share from Matthew 11:28-30,

28 Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest. 29 Take my yoke upon you, and learn from me, for I am gentle and lowly in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light.
