HH, Sir Godfrey Gregg D.Div
HERE IS MY CONCLUSIONS
It’s helpful for me to remember that our eyes are focused on one of four places at all times: on our circumstance, on others, on ourselves, or on the Lord. If they focus on any one of the first three and not on the Lord, we will drift and ultimately fail. It’s only a matter of time.
So how are doing? Are you blooming where you are planted? Are you serving God where you are or are you busy making excuses? Are you serving as a missionary in your world, or are you standing on the sidelines criticizing what others are doing?
Our church could not function without scores of people who serve in simple ways every week. There are those who serve in the Nursery, teaching Sunday School, playing the music, lead children’s Church, helping at the hospital, lead youth groups, take up the offering, serve as ushers. There are those who keep the building in shape, there are those who set up and take down tables. There are those who faithfully send out notes of encouragement. And there are those who uphold us in fervent prayer.
Most of those who visit our church come here because someone invited them. Most of the people who make a commitment to Christ do so not because of the persuasion of an evangelist but because of the influence of a friend, co-worker, or family member who shared the truth in a simple way.
When the soldiers on the battlefield faithfully fight their battles, the war is won. When the members of the football team make their blocks and run their routes, the game is won. Likewise, if we will serve faithfully right where we are, the Kingdom of God will be advanced.
So here’s the challenge: this week look around at your life. Notice the mission field that God has given to you. Ask yourself, “How can I serve God in my present position?” Don’t limit yourself to big things; look also for little ways you can show faithfulness. Look for ways you can plant a seed of grace. Look for ways you can honour the Lord. And once you have identified what you can do: Take a step of faith, trust His wisdom and grace, and then get to work.
