Making Deliveries

 

            I was driving in to the office one day, making my way around the clover leaf to get onto John Deere Road from I-74, (I get dizzy making all three turns now that construction has the direct exit closed!), and as I came around one of the turns I noticed a swarm of FedEx vehicles. They were everywhere! A long line of them coming down John Deere Road, some heading to the interstate, some continuing west on John Deere Road. I remember another day a few years ago being at the intersection of John Deere Road and 41st St. when an even bigger swarm of FedEx trucks came up 41st Street and all headed in different directions.

            You see, down south on 41st St. is the FedEx office, and evidently every morning around 9:00 all the trucks are loaded, and all the drivers take off to make their deliveries. And as that swarm moves into the community people’s lives are changed. Maybe just a little bit, maybe in a big way, but those FedEx trucks deliver something that will change their lives. Maybe it’s an important document. Maybe it’s a toy for a grandchild. Maybe it’s a new wood pellet smoker for dad for Father’s Day. It can be small or big, but someone is going to come home that day to something they didn’t have before.

            That got me to thinking how every Sunday morning there is another swarm that leaves from a location close to FedEx. It leaves a brown brick building on the corner of 48th St. and 38th Ave. Every Sunday morning, around noon, that swarm leaves and moves into the community to change people’s lives. Sometimes in a big way, sometimes in a small way. What they deliver is not packages, parcels or letters, but they deliver things like a helping hand, a comforting shoulder, a word of encouragement, and sometime a word of rebuke. But in some way, when that swarm invades the community, people’s lives are changed. Or should be.

            Have you ever stopped to think how much we are like FedEx in that way? Sunday mornings we come together to get loaded up for our deliveries. We learn something new. We see things in a new way. We are encouraged, equipped and our thinking gets changed maybe just a little. And then we go out and influence others because of what we’ve learned, seen or experienced. I think that’s what Jesus had in mind when he said, “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I will be with you always, to the very end of the age.”

 

Think about it. (And go make your deliveries!)
