Everyday Servants

As Jesus and His disciples were on their way, He came to a village where a woman named Martha opened her home to Him. She had a sister called Mary, who sat at the Lord’s feet listening to what He said. -Luke 10:38-39

It did not take long for Jesus to attain “Rock Star” status after His ministry began.  Imagine the logistics required to support Him, His twelve constant disciples, and the many that followed Him everywhere, day and night.  To make it possible for Him to minister to the multitudes, a multitude of others working invisibly “behind the scenes,” were required to provide their food, shelter, transportation, security, rest.

Some of these workers are known to us through the scriptures, like Mary, Martha and Lazarus, but there must have been many, many more whose names we will never know, but who worked hard for the simple love of the Master.  They did whatever they could, using whatever everyday skill or talent they possessed that would fill His needs, enabling His love to touch so many others even though only He would know their names.
