Periodic Reminders

Half the Old Testament is the word Remember. No, that’s not true. It’s 48%. I just rounded up. As Israel forgot, so do we. Today’s insert is a simple reminder of some of the standards we work to maintain as we sing for the Lord. My prayer is that you […]

Small Acts of Service

December 13th, 2010

10:00 Sunday morning.  A few songs are sung, a few announcements are given, and then a lesson is taught that basically challenges the Christian to do and be more.  Sometimes in the quest for higher ground and accomplishing more for Christ, we overlook some of what we think of as “small” duties that get done all the time.  It does my heart so much good every time I sit back, relax, and think for about 20 minutes on how much people do around here!

I started a list of all the things that each of the teens do or have been involved with, and what a blessing it was to think through every single face on my list and be able to point to something they’ve got their hands in at church (well, not quite ALL of them but we’re working on that!)  Some people give time every single week doing yard work or computer work.  Some take care of the choir platform and cleanup, while a team of others are our greeters on Sunday mornings.  We have guys that lead singing and girls who are intentionally friendly and encourage new people.  We have LOTS involved in special music with the Mixed Ensemble and Young Adults Choir, and we have others who want to be involved by changing out the promotional posters around church.  “Small things” like that are often overlooked, but when you think about it… someone’s got to do it!

It’s great to see a few who come to Saturation Saturday, Men’s Prayer Breakfast, or weekly soul-winning, and I love it when the teens immediately volunteer for anything that needs to be done.  Service gets your mind off you and onto Christ.  How could that NOT be helpful?  As was mentioned yesterday, “You’ll know how good of a servant you are when someone actually treats you like a servant!”

When you come to church, think of ways in which you can take initiative.  Teens, I may not see every little thing that’s done in service, but the good news is that God does, and it’ll all come out in your judgment (a reference to our Romans series.)  Thank you all for meaning so much to us!
