For me, Monday is far more difficult to roll out of bed than any other day of the week! I am usually exhausted from the weekend and a full day of events on Sunday. My motivation when the alarm begins to "buzz' at 5am seriously needs some help! I hear Starbucks calling my name!
Do you ever feel weary in the ministry? Have you ever questioned God about how you can really make any difference in the Kingdom of God?
God has a plan for you and I and that plan is huge. He tells us in His Word that we are to be imitators of Christ. That tells me that others need to see Jesus in me even when I am tired,weary and basically worn out!
All of us can make a difference for the Kingdom of God. I feel such an urgency in my heart for those who are unsaved. People need to know that God loves them and He is returning soon for His church. Christians need to continue being "busy" about God's business. Some folks have developed a habit of only attending church on Easter and Christmas. Easter is this Sunday so we need to take the initiative and invite them to church! Not just any church but a church where the pastor preaches the truth from the Word of God and is not afraid to step on any toes for fear of losing numbers in their church. OUCH! People are searching for hope in a desperate world. God offers that hope and peace to those who surrender their lives to Him.
I realize that preaching truth in church today is not popular. I also realize that those pastor's are often labeled "old fashioned and not relevant". Well friend, when the trumpet sounds, who really cares about being relevant. I just want to know that I know without a shadow of a doubt that I am washed in the blood of the lamb and on my way to heaven! How about you?
