Growth & Participation
In my 41 years of walking on this planet, I've met many doers, and many watchers.
I'm sure you've heard that aged old saying,
"20% of the people do 80% of the work."
While this may be true... but this is NOT God's plan. God wants us all to be about two things - growing and doing!
Check this out...
Ephesians 4: 15-16 (ESV)
Rather, speaking the truth in love, we are to grow up in every way into Him who is the head, into Christ, from whom the whole body, joined and held together by every joint with which it is equipped, when each part is working properly, makes the body grow so that it builds itself up in love.
Did you catch it?
Grow up in every way into Him. We are called to not just sit & soak - but rather to grow in Christ!
Also.... "when each part is working properly" - our churches need you, your job needs you, your families need you to be equipped and and working properly!
The end result? Built up in love! Just imagine the results of 100% of the people did 100% of the doing and the growing!
Have a great Sunday!
