The Price Tag Of Ministry
In the spiritual realm the size of the congregation is not necessarily a good measure of “success”. The “GO” of the Great Commission did not expire at the end of the first century. 21st century churches should be involved in sending as a part of fulfilling our calling and identity. Although not everyone is called into the “ministry”, all are called to be “ministers”. Today’s message from Philippians 2:5-8 focuses on our calling to serve. Since that is what we are called to do, God has also given us the talents necessary for the task. “Inactive Christians” ignore the blessings that God has offered; but those who recognize “ministry offers” receive extreme fulfillment when they work in the power God provides. Are YOU a Christian? Will you surrender your will and way to God? He will accept that surrender and reward it with JOY.
