There is no such thing as insignificant service.
I’ll say! We have no idea of the significance of small acts. So never belittle the little because it’s all important. Real servants do every task with equal dedication because they know it all matters. It’s all important. Don’t mistake anonymous with insignificant. Just because it’s not known doesn’t mean it’s unnecessary.
I spoke with with a young woman who serves in children’s ministry this week who said, “I feel so good about the work that I’m blessed to do. Initially it was more if I could be a positive role model in a child’s life. That was really why I wanted to do it. And I had no idea of the blessings that would come back to me.”
An adult male I spoke with at one of our church plants who serves as a faithful greeter said, “It’s all about changed lives. By making people feel welcomed, no matter what path they’ve been down, it helps them to relax so that when they’re there in the church they get to hear from God personally and their lives are changed forever.”
How is God using you? If you are not serving in the local church, both of you are missing out. As Pastor Rick Warren says, “You were shaped for Serving God.” The fact is, God wants to use you. He really does. If you’re interested in serving at Mobberly in any ministry area, please contact Christy McNabb (firstname.lastname@example.org).
