Time to get in the game

Games are won by active participants. No matter how much you yell at your TV you can’t help the Tigers win the World Series from your living room–believe me I tried. Shout and holler all you want and you won’t affect the outcome of the Lions next season–though they need all the help they can get. In Colossians 1:24 & 25 Paul says he rejoiced in his sufferings for the church because he’d been given a stewardship by God toward the church to make the Gospel fully known. He’d become an active participant in spreading the Gospel. All followers of Christ have been given that same stewardship. Now is the time for you to find a way to serve the Lord with joy. If you aren’t actively serving the Lord I’d suggest you ask God to open your eyes to opportunities to serve for His glory and then get in the game. When you serve, you benefit and others benefit–everyone wins. And when you serve for God’s glory you are a part of making the Gospel of Jesus Christ, the good news, fully known.

With you in the ministry of the Gospel,

  1. good message.. had to come home from work at noon…so sitting in my desk chair…(fits my back) and listened to a couple of your messages…
    “Saved to Serve” exactly… very true…
    That is what I want to keep doing…as long as I can.

    Thank you and family for the nice gifts for Mother’s Day.
