“Help Wanted” signs are posted when laborers are needed at businesses. In Romans 16, the Apostle Paul recognized those who had assisted him in the work of God.
“Greet Priscilla and Aquila my helpers in Christ Jesus:” Romans 16:3 (in the King James Version of the Holy Bible).
Apparently Paul had never forgotten this wonderful couple who assisted Him. In Romans 16:10, he wrote of more helpers, “Salute Urbane, our helper in Christ, and Stachys my beloved.” We don’t find another mention of Urbane and Stachys in the Bible, but Paul knew how valuable they were to him. The position of helper is held in high regard throughout Scripture.
Heaven has posted a help wanted sign. People are still needed to accomplish the work of God’s Kingdom on the earth.
Prayer: My heart is overwhelmed today, as I recall all those who have helped me in my life. Those who have come alongside me to help in various capacities are invaluable. There are some things we can’t do alone. When I needed help, Lord, You sent helpers to assist me.
