THE RELUCTANT MINISTER

We all love to come to church sit back, relax and enjoy the service. A few of us criticize a few things every now and then, but generally we are content to simply let someone else carry the load and the burden of ministry. No doubt we tend to carry the same tendance into the week, thinking and hoping that someone else is doing the work of ministry. We forget that Sunday is only service time and Monday we ought to accelerate. Coming together for worship only gives you the renewal, revival, recharging and encouragement you need to attack and fulfil your destiny. I specifically call such individuals the reluctant leader.

Let us refuse to sit on the sidelines of life and watch as others make a difference for God. You may procrastinate and hesitate but soon you have to motivate yourself and get on with the job at hand. The excuses never end and the job doesn’t get any easier. Simply accept the call of God to be His ambassador everywhere you go.  Get cracking for God and let the light of the kingdom shine through you every day.

SCRIPTURE READING: LUKE 12:42-47

And the Lord replied, “A faithful, sensible servant is one to whom the master can give the responsibility of managing his other household servants and feeding them. If the master returns and finds that the servant has done a good job, there will be a reward. I tell you the truth, the master will put that servant in charge of all he owns. But what if the servant thinks, ‘My master won’t be back for a while,’ and he begins beating the other servants, partying, and getting drunk? The master will return unannounced and unexpected, and he will cut the servant in pieces and banish him with the unfaithful. “And a servant who knows what the master wants, but isn’t prepared and doesn’t carry out those instructions, will be severely punished.

DEVOTION PRAYER: Oh Lord, am grateful for Your grace to minister. I am a sensible servant with a given responsibility. I accept your call today in Jesus’ name. Amen
