It cracks me up when people say “HEY I WANT TO GO DEEPER WITH MY WALK WITH GOD.” It really does! Well if you want to go deeper, then start serving! That’s right serving… Check out what ministry really means.
- Ministry is from the Greek word diakoneo, meaning “to serve” or douleuo, meaning “to serve as a slave.”
If you want to “Go Deeper.” start serving, stop worrying about yourself and get up and go! Go serve!!! People get confused with church, they show up and want to be taught, or poured into. They sit in a Bible study then go to worship, leave and go to lunch. That is a typical week of some people that go to church, you can now cross that off your list.Then they say, Hey I want to go deeper in my walk! Well stop soaking and start serving. Get up, from the pew/chair/floor/rug circle, and start serving. I am sure that your church has a place for you. Then you can have a huge impact on the lives of so many people. If you have been going to church for a long time and you have just been going through the motions each and every week, and aren’t serving. You are missing the point. I hope that you are challenged, and stop complaining about things not being deep enough and start serving Him. This will grow you and those around you in an unbelievable way.
Therefore if there is any encouragement in Christ, if there is any consolation of love, if there is any fellowship of the Spirit, if any affection and compassion, make my joy complete by being of the same mind, maintaining the same love, united in spirit, intent on one purpose. Do nothing from selfishness or empty conceit, but with humility of mind regard one another as more important than yourselves; do not merely look out for your own personal interests, but also for the interests of others. Philippians 2:1-4
