At times in life we can feel like we really aren’t good enough. I know that in ministry we can fall into that trap as well. We hear a great sermon and want to go and do that sermon (that is not a good way to show what God is doing in your life) or we want to go and be that person somehow. I have fallen into that trap before and it is horrible to be there. It is hard to continue to be someone else when God made me the best me.
Ministry is about you being you! God made you to do ministry the way He made you. In ministry, the trap comes as we try to look, talk, act, dress, speak, sound, study, read, listen, yell, live, move, sing, design, like the people who are “doing it.”
Who said you’re not getting it done In your area that you are serving now? You may be reading this and in the back of your mind you are thinking, “well only if I had this or that”.
Why are you “not getting it done”? Maybe because you are looking in the backyard of another church or ministry and you are jealous because they have cooler lights, larger staff, amazing worship leaders, great communicators, cool carpet (ok no one is saying they have cool carpet).
Let’s look that up in the Bible…WAIT, IT’S NOT! No where does it say, the “cooler” buildings, lights, screens, stage designs, sermon titles, get people to come to your church or events.
It does say it is about relationships, that is it! People knowing that you truly care about them, and want to see them grow in their walk with God.
BE you. BE who God made YOU. Don’t be someone else. You will be more successful if you are you! The people that you try to be like, are not like anyone else. They’re not scared to just be them, so do ministry the way God designed you to be, not how He designed everyone else.
