In a general way, ministry is a chance for you to help others while taking them to God, whether at home, at work in church, and so on. If you’re been planning to join one but with hesitation, here are six reasons to believe it is the right way to go.
Serving God in an Organized Way
Is there anything in life that does not have structured and order but still thriving? Joining a ministry makes you part of a team that strives to achieve the extraordinary, whether maintaining the church property by housekeeping or convincing others to believe in Christ with evangelism. You also get mentorship from the ministry’s leaders, whether directly (you and the leader jointly recognize a mentee/ mentor relationship) or indirectly (their decisions, attitude and behavior influence yours as you examine them in action).
Where To Start with Churches and More
Serving God and People by Bringing Your Ideas, Skills and Experiences to the Table
Case Study: My Experience With Religions
For God, love is the most important. The love you show as you give free food to a poor person or provide give medical assistance to refugees, leaves a memorable mark on their hearts. This is definitely augmented as you do it for the Lord, as implied in Matthew 6:33 – indeed, a very good way to spend your time.
Gaining Fellowship with Other Believers
Fellowship is a big deal that certain people deliberately decide to live without. A lot of folks are willing to hang out with friends with compromising values, all for the sake of company. Why not skip that option and be friends with the wonderful people in your local community of believers? You work with them as a team, and most probably will be familiar with them outside of the ministry or even in your neighborhood. They might have some other like-minded friends who all enjoy hanging out together. Before you realize it, you’ve made a whole new set of friends.
Building Your Skill Sets
Planning to list work experience? Why not begin with your ministry? Explain why working as the graphics designer, sound engineer or administrative assistant at your church wouldn’t find a place on your resume as relevant experience. Whatever you are working on, do it with all your heart, as for God, correct? All of these can happen in your ministry, all the while improving your skills and enjoying every minute of it.
Ever grow tired of your ministry, thinking that your efforts are but a waste? Unless that ministry has been badly mismanaged, rethink your thoughts. Most probably, are you are right where God would like you to be, when He wants you there. You’re undoubtedly filling a void and doing your role, assisting in works for Christ. Now that’s some purpose!
