Message for June 13, 2010

I have an interesting question for you to ponder.  Do you serve God or does God serve you? Even though it may seem obvious we don’t always act like we know the answer.  How many times do we dismiss obedience as unnecessary and do what we feel like doing?  Yet, when we want something from God, we expect Him to be right there on the spot ready to do our biding.
How seriously do we take our relationship with God?  Why did Jesus establish the Church?  Were we created for the church or was the church created for us?  Why are there pastors, evangelists, prophets, and elders and deacons?  The Bible plainly lays out instructions for the gathering of the church body.  “Forsaking not the assembling of yourselves together, as the manner of some is.”
Is it the church’s responsibility to serve you or your responsibility to serve the church?  How much do you want to see the church do?  How willing are you to help?  We want all we need to feel good about how things are, but are we personally willing to get involved?  Most people that complain about church are the ones that never get involved in the ministry of the church. Attending services when you decide to and never doing anything else doesn’t make you an active member. You must decide where you want to fit in.  Don’t just drift the easy way by staying uninvolved.  “Have I therefore become your enemy because I tell you the truth?” Gal. 4:16
