Your church needs you. I mean both the congregation of which you are a member and “The Church” meaning the entire body of Christ. You have gifts and talents. If you are like me you can’t sing a note, so the worship team might not be for you. You might cringe at the thought of speaking in front of folks, so maybe you are not a teacher.
It’s time we stop thinking in terms of a “Sunday only” establishment. The church is not a place or a time; it is a body of believers, each one uniquely gifted by God to guide, help, challenge, and support the rest. In fact, most service to the Lord doesn’t take place inside the church building. It happens out in the world, where we do all the things that Scripture commands.
We all have spheres of influence. Our immediate sphere may not be large, but it interacts with other spheres. When we act or speak, only those closest to us notice, but a chain reaction ripples outward to affect an entire community.
A gentle rebuke, a listening ear, or a loving deed benefits the church by strengthening one brother or sister, who then supports another.
We are on this earth to serve the kingdom of God and His church. And we do that by ministering to each other in small ways that steady the whole body as we give extra support to one member. Let’s pray that God will show us the needs we have been created and molded to meet and the courage to step forward.
