Use Me, Lord pt 4

Lord, Use Me!
One of the most discouraging things we could say to our minister is ďThe church is your responsibility, not mine.Ē By contrast, one of the most encouraging things we could say is ďI want to be on your team. How can I help serve the mission of the church here in the community around us?Ē Itís offers like these that help make the church into the light of the world that Jesus wants it and us to be.

We all know the statistics; church attendance is decreasing in many places. But rather than lose hope, letís decide to go out and love, because love is the foundation of true evangelism. More than anything else, love will bring people back to the Lord. Letís ask the Holy Spirit for the attitude of a servant so that we can make a difference.

The apostle Paul once said, ďFor we are his handiwork, created in Christ Jesus for the good works that God has prepared in advance, that we should live in themĒ (Ephesians 2:10). We have all been appointed by God to do something special for him. Each one of us has been created to add to life, to build people up, to give and not just take. Itís built into our spiritual DNA, and we wonít be at peace until we discover what our calling is. If we donít step forward, the job wonít get done.
