Being in ministry has its highs and its lows. Sunday comes every seven days (whether you’re ready or not), and at times it can be a grind to do all that we do to prepare for each week. Don’t misunderstand, the staff love what we do, but like any job it can require a lot out of us. That can be tiring.
But there is one thing that I never get tired of: life change!
Other than trying to bring more glory to God, seeing people changed by Him is what fuels me more than anything else. Seeing a person grasp the grace of God extended through the sacrifice made by His Son Jesus Christ is what gets me out of bed each day. Seeing them then grow and use their time as they attend church each week, their talents as they serve on a ministry team, and their treasure as they discover the true joy in giving to God is equally as energizing.
This Sunday, 11 people will be getting baptized to demonstrate their new changed lives in Christ. It will be an energizing service for anyone who loves seeing lives changed like we do.
So if you’re like me and never get tired of lives changing, you’ll be filled up this Sunday!
