If you’re doing it because no one else will, it’s a job.
If you’re doing it to serve the Lord, it’s a ministry.
If you’re doing it just well enough to get by, it’s a job.
If you’re doing it to the best of your ability, it’s a ministry.
If you’ll do it so long as it doesn’t interfere with other activities, it’s a job.
If you’re committed to staying with it, even when it means letting go of other things, it’s a ministry.
If you quit, because no one praised you or thanked you, it’s a job.
If you stay with it even when no one seems to notice, it’s a ministry.
If you do it because someone else said it needs to be done, it’s a job.
If you do it because you are convinced it needs to be done, it’s a ministry.
It’s hard to get excited about a job.
It’s almost impossible not to get excited about a ministry.
The average church is filled with people doing jobs. A great church is filled with people involved in a ministry. If God calls you to do a ministry, for heaven’s sake (Literally), don’t treat it like a job. If you have a job in the church, give it up and find a ministry! God doesn’t want us feeling stuck with a job, but excited, fulfilled and faithful in a specific ministry
- What is God calling you to do?
- Is God telling you to do a “Job” in the church or to do “Ministry”?
- Which would of the two would you invite a friend to come join you in doing…a Job or Ministry?
- Which of the two would a friend be more excited about getting involved in with you… a Job or Ministry?
May I never loose or deny doing the ministry God has placed in my heart! ... Nor may you!
