Ministry or Job

Some people have a job in the church
Others invite themselves in a ministry
What’s the difference?

If you are doing it just because no one else will, it’s a job
If you are doing it to serve the LORD, it’s a ministry

If you quit because somebody criticized you, it’s a job
If you keep on serving, it’s a ministry

If you’ll do it only as long as it does not interfere with your other activities, it’s a job
If you are commited to staying with it even if it means of letting 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 though nobody recognized your efforts, it’s a ministry

It’s hard to get excited about job
If our concern is faithfulness, it’s ministry

An average church is filled with people doing jobs
A great and growing church is filled with people involved in ministry

Where do we fit in? What about us?
If God calls you to a ministry, don’t treat it like a job
If you have a job, give it up and find a ministry

God doesn’t want us to feel bored and go stuck with a job.
But be excited and faithful to HIM in a ministry
