One of our core values at New Season is, “Saved people serve people.” We say that a lot!
Where are you currently serving?
Can I encourage you to start moving? Don’t sit and wait for God to flash it on your computer screen or post it on your Facebook wall. Jump in to a ministry and do something!
Start serving somewhere. Make a short term commitment. Serve in a particular area of ministry for a month. Check it out and see how you like it. Find out if it is a fit for you…is it your passion? Is it the way God wired you? God saved you to serve.
Ephesians 2:10 says, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them.”
If you are not careful, you will become a consumer instead of a contributor. You will be a sponge who soaks up everything, but never gives in return. God has uniquely gifted & wired you with certain specific gifts, natural talents, & passions. It’s in that area where you need to be serving! Life is too short to be a sponge, a bump on a log or a chair warmer. Step up & step out. Saved people serve people!
God has an amazing plan for your life. He wants to use you in touching someone else’s life.
There’s a baby whose mother does not know Christ and she needs to hear the gospel. Someone needs to care for her baby so she can attend service
There’s a single mom who brings her little boy every week. He needs a father figure to help guide him.
There are tons of teenagers who need a friend and mentor to share their problems with.
There’s an adult man who lost his job this past week. He needs a friendly smile and a warm handshake. He needs to be escorted to a seat so he can hear a message of hope.
Do you teach the Bible? Can you be a mentor? Can you visit the hospitals or shut-ins? Can you volunteer in our church office to answer the phone? Get in on the action, get off the bench, get in the game! You have been called to make a difference…
Saved people serve people!
