Everything Within Christ Is Ministry

This is the other side of the post on sin.

One part of the Christian walk is waiting. - That can be wait as standing by, or wait as a servant waits on a table.

When we are waiting, it seems like nothing is happening.

We can wonder if we are doing what the Lord wants, if we are missing the opportunity to serve God and his kingdom.

Let your loins be girded about, and your lights burning; And ye yourselves like unto men that wait for their lord, when he will return from the wedding; that when he cometh and knocketh, they may open unto him immediately. Blessed are those servants, whom the lord when he cometh shall find watching: verily I say unto you, that he shall gird himself, and make them to sit down to meat, and will come forth and serve them. - Luke 12: 35-37

If you are committed to Jesus Christ, If you are willing and anxious to follow his lead, you are serving God.

God loves us more than we love ourselves. God loves the lost more than we could ever love them. God is wiser and smarter than we are. If we are to serve him it is best for everyone that we do it how and when he directs.

If you act as God leads, everything you do is ministry unto God. If you are shopping, working, or just being lazy, be ready to answer Christ's call. That readiness is ministry to God.

You are called.

To be what you are called to be, follow God.

He may change your direction once in a while, keep following.

Our life is like a giant chess game and the other pieces are able to move themselves. God is the chess master, he will move with you as the board changes, be ready for change.

God is love.

Live in that love and all you do is ministry.
