MAKING A DECISION TO SERVE GOD IN HIS CHURCH

MAKING A DECISION TO SERVE GOD IN HIS CHURCH

Textes: 1 CORINTHIANS 3,10-23 | PROVERBS 19-21

INTRODUCTION

  • Exodus 25, 26 God’s instructions to Moses to build for Him
  • 1 Chronicles 17 God’s instructions to David on building a temple for Him
  • God provides His requirements for the type and materials for the building

LESSONS FOR THE CHRISTIAN

  • The ability to serve God is hinged on His grace. You need to completely depend on this grace.
  • The foundation of our ministry must be Christ. We are assured of a good ministry when Christ is the foundation (Luke 18, 21)
  • We also need to be selective in the materials we choose because of the value we should attach to Christ’s ministry.
  • Our ministry must be team-centred and group-oriented. Our self-interests should not feature in our service for God.
  • The Holy Spirit must be welcomed in our ministry. He must also drive our ministry.
  • Human standards are not the yardstick for ministry effectiveness.

CONCLUSION

  • Our ministry would last and be effective when Christ is indeed the foundation.
