Ephesians 4 makes it clear that ministry is not properly the exclusive domain of the pastor. Everyone is called to do ministry both within and without the body. Why don't more Christians engage in ministry? Could it be that we sense how dangerous ministry can be? Dr. Keller does a great job offering practical advice.
Small groups are critical! Christians are not stewarding their time well if they are not making time to grow in their walk with Jesus and other believers through small groups. It isn't in the corporate gathering of worship every week that you develop those concrete life-long bonds. It is in the small group or Life Group where these bonds happen. You should be involved in one, and you should be aware of the difficulty involved in forming true Christian fellowship. It's not about teaching, it's about learning! See also, Five Benefits of Small Groups, and the Five Myths Facing Small Groups.
We should learn about giving mercy as well as knowing how to forgive. This can be difficult for all of us at times. Here are nine links on forgiveness.
If you don't have time to be involved in a Life Group or attend Worship every week, then something is wrong. You are not controlling your schedule, you are being controlled by it. Pause for a moment, ask God's forgiveness, and take your schedule by the horns so you can prioritize those things that are important to Him!
That's it for this week! Be sure to steward those things that God has entrusted to you!
